suggested ECU build a parking

Following the passage o the
Safe Roads Act ia fall, ECU
fraternities decided to initiate dry
rush during the spring rush
period. FraterniMe will resume
serving alcoholic beverages during
this fall's rush.
Several reasons were cited sup-
porting the initiation of dry rush.
The fraternities were attempting
to avoid problems caused by the
necessity of checking identifica-
tion of all rushees. They were also
concentrating on eliminating
students who attended rush par-
ties only because of the alcohol.
The fraternities did well and
had a "good rush said Inter-
Fraternity Council President
Glenn Conway. However, he ad-
ded, "the fraternities that did best
were the ones that held big all-
campus parties before rush
Conway said that although the
parties were not officially rush
parties, they served the same pur-
pose. "In order to have a totally
dry rush, we'd have to ban all all-
campus parties he said.
When all-campus parties are
held, there is no structure, Con-
way said, causing a greater risk
than with a structured wet rush.
In addition, Conway said some
fraternities did not fare as well
with the dry rush.
A set of guidelines has been
drawn up to assist in regulating
this year's rush. "If these are
followed, there will be no pro-
blem Conway said.
Associate Dean of Orientation
and Judiciary James Mallory also
said if organizations follow the
guidelines, they should not have
Jt.U unless il is d�ne
with the cooperation of
everybody, is a farce he said.
Mallory said he felt that if alcohol
was restricted for only three days
it was a useless effort.
"You can only have dry rush if
somebody passes a rule stating
that you don't serve alcoholic
beverages to non-greeks "
Mallory said. This, he said, would
place further emphasize qualitv
instead of quantity among
Mallory said he hopes the
fraternities "are familiar with the
inherent dangers. I'd hate to see a
big lawsuit � it doesn't take but
one slip and then you have all
kinds of repercussions
With dry rush, Mallory said
costs are lower, and "you're sell-
ing a fraternity on its virtues, not
by having a keg of beer
Both Mallory and Conway said
passage of the 21-year-old drink-
ing age will make the question
academic. "It will be a reality
soon said Conway. "Why not
give them a chance to use the beer
as a tool now?"
SGA President John Rainev
said he supports a dry rush. Drv
rush, he said, "brings out people
interested in the fraternity system
not just m the party aspect of it "
"We should give it one more
try, Ramey said. "It will really
be bad when something bad hap-

?�SIiCLMembers To R�ive Seven Percent Raises
News rdilor
ECU faculty members will
receive a 7 percent across the
board raise this fall and manv will
receive an additional 3 percent
merit-based raise.
The salary increases were deter-
mined by the UNC Board of
Governors and apply to all faculty
members in the UNC astern. The
decision was made to allocate
$37.8 million appropriated bv the
General Assembly to increase
Most non-teaching employees
will receive a 10 percent across-
the-board raise. The additional 3
Percent allocated to teaching
faculty will be distributed at the
discretion of individual
During 1983, there were no
laculty raises due to a salary
freeze within the UNC system. In
fiscal 1984, 5 percent raises were
According to ECU Vice
Chancellor for Academic Affairs
Angelo Volpe, it will be
September before most faculty
members see the effects of the
salary increases. They will be
retroactive to July 1, however
Currently, individual departments
are in the process of recommen-
ding raises. These increases must
be approved by the UNC General
Administration before being
made effective.
Volpe said the additional 3 per-
cent will be awarded based on in-
dividual merit, recent promotions
and years of service, as well as
other criteria. In addition, it will
be used to make adjustments in
the existing salary structure.
While it is possible for the raises
to range from 7 percent to 13 per-
cent, Volpe said he did not think
the range would be that great
here He said he feels most of the
faculty here do their jobs, thus
warranting merit raises
Funds for salary adjustments
will also be taken from monies
available from vacant positions
According to a recent studv
published in The Chronicle of
Higher Education, the salaries at
22 rank in aPProximatelv the
50th percentile nationwide. Based
on a nine-month salary and ex-
cluding fringe benefits, the
average salary for a full professor
is $33,300; for an associate pro-
fessor, $27,300; an assistant pro-
fessor averages $22,100 and an in-
structor $19,500.
Faculty salaries at N.C State
and UNC-Chapel Hill nink in ap-
proximately the 60th percentile.
Instructors' salaries it all three
institutions are ranked in higher
percentiles than those of pro-
fessors. Volpe attributes this to
the fact that the instructors' star-
ting salaries are "so low that they
try to increase them as much as

Private liberal arts colleges that
use the no-need scholarships �
which are not based on the stu

students probably are wasting
their money, Henry Freeman a
doctoral education student, found
in a study of scholarships m 44:

"For the kid who doesn't need
the money � and that's the kid
who usually applies to a private
school � I found that the amount
of the scholarship did not make
the difference" when deciding
which college to attend, Freeman
As competition among colleges

While the case made its way to
the Supreme Court, campus of-

chief Jerry Sullivan. "So it won't

Worse than the extra work in-

adds, is the idea that it is "unfair"
and has nothing to do with finan-
cial aid.
"It's overkill he argues, "

officals can anticipate some
changes that could make the pro-
cess even more complicated next
Beginning in the 1985-86 school
year, students will be required to

Miss America
Guccione Exploiting Miss Williams
The Mi�� AmpriVo D�� �
The Miss America Pageant is as
American as apple pie and
baseball. Some say it is sexist, but
it isn't. In fact, the beauty part of
the program accounts for less in
the overall scoring than the parts
for brains and talent. We all adore
the holder of the title, for she
represents the best of our nation's
young women. But, this year
something has gone amiss.
Vanessa Williams, the 57th Miss
America, has relinquished her
crown after sexually explicit pic-
tures of her appeared in Penthouse
magazine. We do not condone
what she has done. We could even
defend her if the pictures were
more the type printed in Playboy
but they aren't. The spread is more
consistent with those of Hustler.
She, though, is not the problem
Bob Guccione, the publisher of
Penthouse, is. He says he is only
trying to shatter the myth of the
"vestal virgin" that the pageant er-
roneously portrays. He isn't; he's
exploiting Miss Williams plain and
Mr. Guccione, in order to shat-
ter this myth had to raise his cover
price from three to four dollars.
We assume it is expensive to shat-
ter myths. But, Guccione is not
chopping down only a myth, he is
breaking a heart. He cares nothing
tor Miss Williams. He cares only
for her selling power. In our socie-
ty he is free to print what he wants
and that is good. But the abuse of
that freedom only wrongs all of
America in the long run. For what
he is doing, we will label him scuz-
Tom Chiapel, the man who took
the pictures is also among the men
m that category. He, trying to
make a fast buck, allegedly broke a
promise to Miss Williams that the
pictures were not to be published
and were for private use only. The
pageant was only slightly wronged
by what Miss Williams did, but
what Mr. Guccione and Mr.
Chiapel did to her was definitely
All legal questions about the
release of the pix aside, we hope
these men fed good about what
they have done. They have com-
mitted greed, and in the process
with a little help from Miss
Williams, they have scarred

ECU Beauty Declining
I am writing as a citizen of Green-
ville and as an alumna and employee of
ECU to express my deep concern for
the University's lack of interest in
preserving the historic beauty of
Greenville and the campus. Our past
as expressed through architecture and
nature, brings us to where we are and
enhances our present and future. More
effort needs to be directed towards
blending past, present and future here
in the physical environment. I abhor
the loss of Eleanor Coleman's house
across Fifth Street from the main en-
trance to the campus. The residential
aspect of Fifth Street needs to be
preserved. This house could have been
used for much needed office space in-
?r� i�r thcr P Parking
ot One day ECU must face the fact
that parking decks are the answer to
the chrome parking problem, not the
ugly spread of never-ending asphalt
lots The citizens of Greenville need to
make their outrage known publicly
not just privately. Solutions to ECU's
need for expansion can be found if
University officials and Greenville
citizens will work together on them.
The much-needed classroom
building has been funded by the
legislature and plans still call for its
constriction in the middle of the Sallie
Joyner Davis Arboretum, obliterating
another natural refuge. This building
could easily be built on the site of one
of the many sprawling asphalt parking
lots located near the center of the cam-
pus. A parking deck would free up
much of the space now occupied bv
these parking lots. Also from the pic-
ture published in the East Carolinian it
is obvious that little thought has been
put into blending the architecture of
the new and old buildings.
I am happy to discover that money is
being provided to repair the roof of the
old cafeteria on the main uriMrrtRr
campus. It is one of the original
buildings. However, I am sorry to find
out that the contract calls for discar-
ding the roof tiles after removing hem
to complete roof repairs. This seems to
u �?Jtrend in camPus repairs on the old
buildings. There is too much emphasis
on short-term, inexpensive repairs as
opposed to considering the long-erm
costs of constantly repeating the
repairs. Can the extra expense of put-
ting the tile back on the roof � tiles
that have lasted 75 years - compare to
the cost of the frequent replacement of
shingles that will be faced in the
ECU is taking a step in the right
direction by repairing the old cafeteria
but at the same time she is movim? in
the wrong direction by discarding the
roof tiles destroying the Arbor urn
and demolishing the Coleman house
The University needs to expand md
to solve its parking problems. Let m all
work together to provide solutions t hat
have a minimal negative impact on the
beauty and heritage of Greenville.

The 1940s Radio Hour explodes
as they hop to the finger-

the 1940's. Besides a spectacular
cast Producer Edgar R. Loessin
combines special sound effects
with musical excellence to yield
the Summer Theatre's most peppy
Play yet.
The 1940s Radio Hour, written
by Walton Jones, originally began
in 1972 as a one-man radio
drama. From there it turned into a
Cabaret production and finally hit
New York in October of 1979.
The setting and sound effects
which play a major role in The
1940s Radio Hour, make the play
both believable and amusing. Us-
ing everything from cornstarch to
coconut halves to a toilet plunger
the cast of WOV (V for Victory)
of New York recreates an old-time
radio program for its "home
listeners" and live audience. In
this case the theatre audience acts
as the "studio audience The au-
dience is even instructed when to
clap by two illuminated "Ap-
plause" signs extended from the
ceiling on either side of the stage.
Now Summer Theatre veterans
Don Biehn and John Kuhn close
the 1984 season as Clifton A. Fed-
dington, the somewhat-hyper sta-
tion producer and announcer and
Johnny Cantone, the cocky,
womanizing station star.
Other familiar faces include
Barbara Gulan as the cute little
Connie Miller, Michael Krohn as

Elton John Changes Image For The Better
Elton John
In the mid-1970's, Elton John
was a superstar in every sense of
the word. He had the teenage
market cornered with his glitter-
rock image, and his quality
material appealed to an older au-
dience as well. I still feel good all
over when I hear "Rocket Man"
or "Bennie and the Jets' on the
radio, and it's hard to hold back
the tears on the sad songs like
"Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest
Word Elton John was an artist
who used the power of emotion to
its fullest extent.
In 1984, Elton's image isn't
what it used to be � the glitter
and makeup are gone, and the
pretentious concept albums are a
thing of the past. And you know
what? I'm tickled pink, because
this fate has brought Elton back
down to earth and to his roots.
These days, he concentrates more
on the music than the image, and
it has resulted in his finest album
since the classic Goodbye Yellow
Brick Road.
The title of the new LP, Break-
ing Hearts, says it all. The ten new
songs tie in to run the gamut of
emotions from rejection to reflec-
tion. "Restless" starts us off, ap-
propriately enough, with the in-
secure feeling of "looking for

Comic Books
Still Popular
Once comic book readers were
stereotyped as kids or juvenile
delinquents. Now there are
thousands of comic book collec-
tors and fans across the United
States, ranging from grade-
schoolers to grandfathers.
Numerous conventions for col-
lectors and dealers occur every
weekend of the year, and hun-
dreds of comic book stores in
most larger cities specialize in
items for the comic book collector
and fan.
Although comics were once
aimed specifically at a pre-teenage
market, there are now comic
books for every age group, from
grade-school favorites like
Casper and Archie, through the
more mature adventures of
Superman and Spiderman to the
adult strips found in
"undergrounds" and magazines
ike Heavy Metal and Epic
in addition to the current
periodicals, there are now more
books reprinting the classic comic
favorites of yesterday than ever
before. Collections can be found
in hardback, softback and paper-
back editions.
Comic book characters are ex-
panding into other mediums
however. Superman, The Hulk
Wonder Woman, and Spiderman
are all recent examples of just
some of the comic book heroes to
appear on television and in the
movies. In the future, watch for
movie appearances of Conan
Batman, and the Swamp Thing'
There are even novelizations of
your favorite DC or Marvel
superhero at your local paperback
The best source of comics for
Greenville area fans has, for over
three years, been the Nostalgia
Newstand located with the
Booktrader on Dickinson
Avenue. The store offers the fan
and collector thousands of current
and back issue comics, posters by
fan favorites, and comic book-
related publications. A number of
the current comics offered cannot
be obtained on the regular news
stands. Titles like The Spirit,
Moonknight, Cerebus the Aard-
vark, and Captain Victory are
among the growing number of
comic books known as "Direct
Sales Comics This means they
are sold to stores on a non-
returnable basis; therefore, most
news stands will not carry them.
The propi ietor of the Nostalgia '
Newstand and area fan collector is
Charles Lawrence. He has the
following advice to would-be col-
lectors: "You should only collect
the titles you enjoy reading.
Speculating is risky business and
even more so with recent books. If
you enjoy what you collect, then
you'll have a better understanding
of why people collect books
Even so, Charles is always on the
lookout for old comic books to
buy for his store and welcomes
visits from all fans.

Harrison's Players Working
nd Academics
William Grady gained 15 pounds daring the off-season and as a result
mil see more action at small-forward during the '8485 campaign.
Staff Writer
After last season's disappoin-
ting 4-23 record, ECU basketball
coach Charlie Harrison is working
to get his program moving in the
right direction.
Last spring Harrison asked ris-
ing sophomores Leon Bass,
William Grady and Roy Smith to
attend both sessions of summer
school because he felt it would
benefit them both academically
and athletically.
Harrison said that none of his
players had to go to summer
school to be eligible for the up-
coming season, but felt he owed
his players the chance to graduate
with their class.
According to Harrison, two
reasons for last year's record were
immaturity and a lack of physical
strength inside. "Last year people
carried the ball inside and just
muscled it up he said, "and
then we would come down and
couldn't score on the inside and
would end up taking a bad shot
After several exchanges such as
this, the other team would usually
open up a lead and Harrison
would have to call timeout to
make an adjustment.
Another problem Harrison fac-
ed was having a team with a lack
of actual playing experience. "In
North Carolina kids just don't
play enough during the summer
Last year this caused Harrison to
devote much of time to individual
needs, and he said "even near the
end of the season we were work-
ing on individual improvement in-
stead of team play
When the Pirates open their
season Nov. 27 in Minges Col-
iseum against Central Connecticut
State last year's freshmen will not
only have a year's experience
behind them, but they will also be
stronger. Under the direction of
strength coach Mike Gentry �
Bass, Grady and Smith have all
added weight, and according to
Harrison, "It's not just weight,
but good muscle weight
Bass, 6' 11 weighed 178
pounds last season, but now
weighs 210. Grady has added 15
pounds to his frame and Harrison
feels that he will now be able to
play small-forward against taller
opponets because of his added
strength. Smith, a 6' 7" forward,
has gained 22 pounds. Harrison
felt Smith's biggest problem last
year was weakness, but said he
was such a good athlete that he
could get by just jumping over
Another player who could help
in the coming season is Peter
Dam, a seven-foot recruk from
Holland. When asked what to ex-
pect from Dam in the coming
season, Harrison said "I sincerely
don't know � I've only seen him
play on tape However, ECU's
third-year cocach did say Dam
was "a good defensive player who
rebounds and runs the court well
for a big man.
"He needs help offensively
Harrison continued, "but I can
teach someone offensive moves �
what I can't teach is someone to
be seven feet tall Harrison also
said Dam is "making one hell of a
sacrifice" to leave his family and
lifestyle to play basketball for
ECU, and feels he will only get
better because he is driven to be a
better basketball player.
Harrison said ro positions are
secure for the upcoming season,
but feels through hard work dur-
ing the summer and fall months
that the Pirates will be an improv-
ed team in '8485.
According to ECU basketball coach Charlie Harrison
makes up for his weakness by "just jumping over peoph

"Sometimes you take a shot at
it and win That's the optimistic
attitude that got Bob Gennarelli
his current post as ECU's Sports
Information Director.
After several years as a sports
reporter with the Dallas Morning
News and the Houston Post, Gen-
narelli needed a new challenge, so
when he was offered a job at the
University of Houston as a senior
assistant sports information direc-
tor, he accepted.
The job satisfaction and ex-
perience gained during his 16
month stay there led him to apply
for ECU SID when he learned of
the opening from a friend in
"A reporter I knew did a
feature on the East Carolina foot-
ball team because (ex-ECU runn-
ing back) Sam Harrell was leading
the Houston Gamblers and the
LSFL in scoring at that time.
When I heard the job was
available, I just decided to go for
if "
The transition was made more
difficult because there was so
much information to put out all at
once. "The baseball team was in
the NCAA playoffs, coaches were
coming and going and I was trying
to get organized at the same
time Gennarelli said.
"It's very different than at
Houston he added. "At
Houston all thfc media came to
you � here it takes a lot more ef-
fort to attract interest in the sports
"We have to make sure media
guides get to the right people and
create more interest for our
athletic program in major cities so
as to increase our marketability.
"Since the successful football
season last year there has been
about a fifty percent increase in
requests from the media for infor-
mation and a large part of our
time is involved with satisfying
their needs.
"We do this through regular
mailings around the country and
by generating favorable
publicity Gennarelli stated.
"Our job is to get recognition for
Other functions of the SID in-
clude trading information with
opposing schools on athletics and
producing the football programs.
This year the programs will have
more color and some new
"We want the programs to
reflect the growth of Pirate foot-
ball as a 'big-time' power said
Gennarelli. "Last year Ken Smith
had to do everything himself as
SID, but his promotion to the new
post of Assistant Athletic Director
of Public Relations and the addi-
tion of an assistant SID make it
possible to work on details.
Along with more color the pro-
grams will include the bowl game
dates. "We warn to give an at-
mosphere of confidence Gen-
narelli said. "We want to portray
the attitude that we expect to be at
a bowl game
The addition of an assistant
SID is an example of this attitude.
The expansion in this important
support function is indicative of
growth and faith in the future.
Rob Wilson was picked to fill
this spot from a position at
Florida State University as a
graduate assistant SID. He had
played football for a year at Ole
Miss before transferring to FSU,
but decided to work in sports in-
formation there.
He handles non-revenue sports
such as soccer, track and
volleyball and also works with
women's basketball. Wilson is
one of a two-man team according
to Gennarelli and assists with
football and basketball.
"When I was first at FSU,
nobody paid much attention to us
because the team hadn't gained
any recognition Wilson said,
"but when we started winning it
really changed.
"If ECU can win again this
year against the major teams he
added, "nobody can say we just
snuck up on them � they'll have
to believe we're for real
Wilson also oversees the stu-
dent assistant staff which present-
ly consists of Brooks Thomas, b

Both agree that their job is
made much easier when the
Pirates win. "You can he a great

Both Bob Gennarelli and Rob

traditions that go along with being
a national power. After all,
nothing succeeds like success!

Most athletes' scholarships ex
pire when they play out their final
year of eligibility, but such is not
the case if you're a member of the
Pirate football team.
Every year several ECU seniors
still have to fill a few requirements
in order to graduate, and if they
have a good attitude and still want
to be part of the football pro-
gram, head coach Ed Emory
keeps the players on scholarship
by having them take part in the
student coaching program.
Shews9 Corner
Editor's Column
Softball Coach Sue Manahan
Manahan said that she was
pleasantly surprised with the
recruiting season and doesn't ex-
pect to sign any new players ex-
cept for walk-ons.
The team will start practice in
the spring of 1985, and Manahan
is still in the process of deciding
whether to take a "southern trip"
to Florida during spring break in
which ECU would compete
against some top-notch teams.
One player that fits in perfectly
with the program is last year's
starting center John Floyd. "I've
wanted to be a coach all my life
and I'm getting a good start by
doing this Floyd said. "My dad
coached for 18 years, and that's
all I've ever wanted to do.
"It's not like a job because I'm
still on scholarship Floyd con-
tinued, "it's just staying involved.
I think it will be a good experience
and will help me in the long run
The student coaching program
was implemented by Coach
Emory when he arrived at ECU,
and the fourth-year coach feels it
has served its purpose well. "The
program lets the kids sec the
whole picture Emory explained.
"When they were players they on-
ly looked at things from one
standpoint � now they see things
in an entirely different perspec-
Emory also thinks the program
is a good experience for everyone
involved, and said he views it as
an internship. "We give the kids a
great deal of responsibility he
said. "They help with recruiting,
in the weight room and they also
get to work with the best coaching
staff in the country
Floyd started as a student coach
during spring practice, and said he
got some good coaching ex-
perience during that time. "It was
a lot different standing on the
sidelines, but I learned a lot of
things about being a coach that I
didn't know before
During the summer months the
football staff has been busy
preparing for the upcoming
season, and Floyd said he and the
other student coaches have been
doing "anything we can to help
Some of the things Floyd has
done while in summer school in-
clude: helping out with football
camp, recruiting junior college
players over the phone and runn-
ing a lot of errands to Raleigh.
The 6' 1 265-pound Fairmont,
N.C. native says he enjoys every
minute of what he's doing because
he knows it will help him in his
future endeavor to be a college
When the team reassembles in
preparation for their Sept. 1
season opener at Florida State,
Floyd's duties will almost ex-
clusively consist of coaching.
"We'll help the freshmen learn
the system, manage some of the
younger guys when they break in-
to scout teams and also help coach
people at the positions we played
last year
One of the players Floyd will be
helping out this fall is his expected
replacement, Tim Mitchell. Floyd
said one of the hardest things
about being a student-coach is
having authority and trying to
help people like Mitchell, who
already know as much about be-
ing a center as he does.
"If I went somewhere else it
wouldn't be that hard Floyd ex-
plained, "but I'm friends with all
the guys on the team and it's kind
of hard to separate yourself from
them. I hear a lot of things (from
the coaches) that are going on,
and everbody always wants to
know what's happening
Floyd plans on graduating at
the end of the spring semester,
and from there he plans on pursu-
ing his master's degree in sports
administration. He wants to serve
as a graduate assistant while
working towards his master's,
which he ultimately hopes will
lead him to a full-time coaching

Although Emory feels the �
dent coaching program is
beneficial to all those who take
part in it, the National Collet
Athletic Association does not sup-

they are close to placing
unreasonable restrictions on the

coach, "The NCAA is a policy-

Boomerang flying can be a great
alternative for those lazy summer
afternoons in Greenville.
The boomerang is probably a
descendant of the non-returning
killer stick found in Australia and
many other parts of the world.
Returning boomerangs dating
more than 10,000 years old have
been found in an Australian
swamp. The aborigines of
Australia used the returning

'rang returns is a question for
aerodynamisists. All you need to
know is that if thrown with an
adequate spin, the 'rang will sail
forward and fly in an oblong path
back to the launching spot. But
getting a 'rang back to you is not
as easy as it looks or sounds.
'Rangs come in right-handed
and left-handed models. Believe it
or not, it is virtually impossible
for a lefty to toss a right-handed
'rang and vice versa. The best
'rangs are made of strong
plywood, fine tuned for flight by
sanding and varnishing. Not only-
are 'rangs made in the classic two-
arm shape, but ihey can have
three, four, or six arms or be
fashioned in the shape of almost
all the letters of the alphabet. Rus-
ty Harding, of Vero Beach, Fla
makes 'rangs in the shape of a
To throw a 'rang you need to
choose a softball-sized grassy field
with no obstacles. A calm day is
best, with little to no wind. Hold
the flat side of the 'rang toward
your palm, away from you, and
the curved side toward you. It
should be held with the thumb
and the first and second fingers
about two inches from the tip.
Throw it vertically (never
sideways, like a frisbee) straight in
front of you, as you would a soft-
ball. With enough snap action in

Local Restaurants Reflect
Diverse Cultures, Cuisines
Staff Editor
The population of Greenville is a
hodgepodge of different cultures
and personalites, each unique and
individual. Greenville's
restaurants are also unique,
representing a wide range of
cultures and countries.
The most popular foreign food
seems to be Chinese, with four
restaurants in Greenville.
The Golden Dragon on
Highway 11 at Carolina East Con-
venient Center has been open
since 1973. It has a casual family
atmosphere and specializes in
Cantonese cooking, with their
Lobster Cantonese and Steak
The recently opened Hawaii
Fountain has a slightly more for-
mal atmosphere, and emphasizes
their Hunan Shrimp. Polynesian
cocktails and dinners are also
available. The Hawaii Fountain is
located at 2217 Memorial Drive.
The Peking Palace, also a fami-
ly restaurant, has been open since
1979 and is in the Greenville
Square Shopping Center on the
Highway 264 bypass. They allow
reservations for large parties and
recommend their Peking Duck.
They have other Peking,
Szechuan, and American cuisine,
however, as well as Polynesian
mixed beverages.
Szechuan Garden, since 1981,
specializes in the Szechuan style,
with their Szechuan Beef and
Kang Pao Chicken, but also has
other styles available. Szechuan
Garden is at 100 E. Tenth St.
In the way of French cuisine,
Greenville boasts Sweet
Caroline's at 740 E. Greenville
Blvd whose menu reflects a
French Continental style usually
seen in New Orleans. Sweet
Caroline's has an intimate at-
mosphere and serves such dishes
as Coq au Vin and Beef
Bordelaise, as well as old favorites
such as Escargot.
Greek food has been a steady
attraction in Greenville with the
Marathon, which has a casual,
college student atmosphere. They
serve Souvlakia, Gyros, and Athe-
nian Style Chicken as well as
American sandwiches. The
Marathon is at 560 Evans St.
The Villa Roma at 2713 E. 10th
St. with its Italian menu serves a
"true" pizza, and one of their
most popular items, the pizza sub.
The Villa Roma has an intimate
atmosphere also suited to
families, and any style of dress is
welcome, from casual to dressy.
Finally, Mexican food has
always been a favorite of college
students. Taco Bell at 319 E.
Greenville Blvd. has a fast-food
style, with many items a cross bet-
ween American and Mexican
foods: Taco Salad and the Nacho
Bell Grande are two examples.
Chico's has a more strictly
Mexican menu with their items
such as the Chimichanga, and a
casual family atmosphere.
Chico's has been open since 1983
and is located on 521 Cotanche St.
in the Georgetown Shops.
Although Greenville will always
have room for hamburgers and
french fries, these foreign spices
add variety to life.

the wrist, the launch should cause
the 'rang to fly out and back
toward you.
There are many variations on
flying, like into the wind, with
your back to the wind, etc but
the best method for beginners is to
launch the 'rang about 45� away
from the wind. If you become
good enough to actually get the
'rang to come back to you, catch
it horizontally. In other words,
sandwich it between your palms.
Catching it with one hand, or by
the tips can be damaging to
fingers. The 'rang can be thrown
with the free end pointing forward
(Australian style) or with the free
end pointing backward (.American
Boomerang throwers, however
little known, have accomplished
some amazing feats. Ben

time. Barney Ruhe of New Your

Cure for Summer School Blues
Lies Just Around the Corner
Aafeameiit Editor
It was 7 a.m. when my alarm
clock buzzed. I lay in bed for a
couple of seconds and suddenly
jumped out and lumpishiy walked,
to the bathroom. I felt as if I were
still asleep until the warm sensa-
tion of a shower made me explore
the possibility that maybe the day
wouldn't be so bad after all.
Finally, I was dressed and all set
for my first day in summer
school. I asked myself why out of
all my college years had I waited
until my last one to attend sum-
mer school? Well, the answer was
easy. I knew that I usually spent
most of my summer vacations
working and saving money for the
following school year. I've always
liked to have a little reassurance in
my purse; besides I had to look
out for my educational and per-
sonal expenses. I don't like to hit
the folks on a regular basis even
though they say I do.
What the heck, my 8 a.m. class
was finally over I couldn't believe
I had survived a hour and a half,
of Developmental Psychology. I
immediately rushed over to the
Croatan and grabbed myself some
hot tea. I always needed caffeine
in my system when I had to face
the people in the music building
because they are so energetic dur-
ing the morning hours. I had
work-study there. My supervisor
told me to bring my books along
with me because I could study if
there wasn't anything to do.
You're right. Very seldom did she
run out of things for me to do.
Time really flies when you're
busy, I thought.
Finally, it was the last class of
the school day and I was relieved,
along with all my other classmates
who were being dragged through
the mud of Spanish II's boot
camp. We had a hard core drill in-
structor who flagged everyone at a
reasonable time so they could
drop the course without a grade
penalty. I thought that was very
considerate of him even though
very few, if any of us, were there
by choice. We had been drafted
by University policy to have a
foreign language. I realized that
Spanish could help me but I only
needed to know a few terms and
expressions. Shucks, I could sur-
vive in any Spanish speaking
country with the basic words; you
know, words that would mean
thank-you, money, help and send
First session had come to an
end and I didn't have a chance to
go to the Elbo but once.

slower than a turtle race and who
was it that said "Greenville has it
all?" Maybe it's me suffering
from summer school blues. This is
the first time I've ever gotten it
but the symptoms are pretty ob-
Do you feel bunrnd out, ripped
apart or do you just feel sick from
being in Greenville all summer?
Well, these are sure symptoms of
what I call summer school blues.
However, there is a solution for
such a problem. No, its not R-O-
L-A-I-D-S. Gee I wrote the solu-
tion down in Spanish and I've
forgotten what it was but if you
don't feel well after a good night's
sleep and the problem still
prevails, just take two aspirin and
call me July 27.
A diplomat would have quite a difficult time trying to decide; Chinese, Greek, Italian, French.

No Time to Lose:
Time to Go Fishing
Staff Editor
Like many summer school
students who work, there is
always somewhere to be in the
next 15 minutes. No time to lose-
no time to lose. So when I found
my afternoon free 1 was confused
and disoriented. Then from
out of my subconscious came the
of the trunk up into the branches
that were just out of reach. I
estimated the distance. It wasn't
far but my jeans were too tight for
climbing. I stood thinking, gazing
past the apple tree. In the distance
1 saw bright colors flashing. It was
the pond and there were the fish-
flying fish, sparkling in the sun

took down an antique cane pole hurried to the banks of the pond.

my great-grandfather had
me on his death bed. The pole was
in excellent condition. It didn't
seem it had aged at all. I gathered
the rest of my equipment which
consisted of a spool of string, a
couple of hooks, and a basket.
when I came to the edge of the for fishing.
Luckily there were crickets hop-
ping about near by-no time to
lose. I tied one to a hook and
dropped it in the water. Time
passed and passed. I was due to be
at work very soon and could waste
no more time. It wasn't my day
woods I hesitated to assure i
directions. The heat and sun rays
were squeezing the breath from
my lungs. I quickly reorganized
the basket and pole to fit one
hand so I could have one hand
free to protect my face from tree
limbs and small riving insects.
I finally entered the forest. It
was immediately cool and
pleasantly moist. That was a
blessing since'I had at least a mile
to go before I reached the secret
The trip took very little time
and when I was almost there I
spotted an apple tree heavy with
ripe apples. They looked
delightful and I thought I might
like one. I stared from the bottom
Later I learned that flying fish
of that sort will eat only during
early morning and late afternoon.
I was still teased by the fish as
they glided across the pond. They
were so unconcerned with me I
might walk out into the water a
few feet and catch them in my
hands. However after some con-
sideration I decided against it

�Mr Matt
Living in eastern North
Carolina definitely has its advan-
tages. Unless you crave cold
mountain glens and back wood
. hollows, your car probably points
its bumper toward the beach
whenever it knows that you have a
couple of free days. All that sun
and fun is a perfect diversion
from summer school and tedious
jobs. However, the beach can
create grave problems for females
like me-the surfing widow.
Since my hometown is a mere
three miles from the ocean, I've
spent months of lying alone in the
sand wishing Honeypie was
lounging around with me. In-
stead, he is paddling around "out
there" waiting for a wave. I have
endured the "let's check out the
waves before I take you home"
torture on many weekend nights.
I've watched him pout when the
wind shifted, made the waves
choppy, and rendered them
unrideable. I finally got curious. I
hitched up my bathing suit, bor-
rowed one of Sweetykin's old
surfboards and decided that my
days of lazing around the sand
were over.
It looks easy. You wade out in
the breakers about waist deep, lie
on the board, and paddle out
beyond the breaking waves. Then
you turn around and ride them
back again, only this time stan-
ding up. What I didn't realize is
that a surfboard can float a ton of
lead bricks. Each time a wave at-
tacked I would go under but the
board wouldn't. And North
Carolina ordinances make it
worse; every surfer must be at-
tached to his board by an ankle
I struggled and paddled and
toppled off the board again and
again, while Babycakes was
casually floating in the swells
beyond me. The waves washed
over me and I would go under
furiously, ducking under .ci
waves, just as my darling had
shown me. Suddenly I was there-
beyond the breakers. But two feet,

Herbs are plants that create
magic. After a long, dark winter
the first sign of spring is when I
notice my beautiful herbs coming
to life in my little garden.
I rush outside in a burst of
furious energy, preparing the bed
for the summer sun. I pull out
weeds, divide the herbs to give
them room to grow, and as the
leaves bruise to my touch, I get a
heady whiff of these most elegant
of earth bound creatures.
Then comes my most favorite
summer pastime next to oggling
near-naked, summer browned
men: watching my herbs grow in
my lovingly tended garden.

than stroking a beautiful god con-

Their leaves, like silky skin are
warm to the touch by the summer
sun. And herbs, if stroked proper-
ly, give off an individual aroma,
the signature of the plant.
Like an ardent lover looking for
blossoms, gently coaxing out
pollen and nector in a lazy dance
under the hypnotic heat of the
sun. Without this sensual ritual
life could not go on. Who could
speak against it?
In the sticky summer evening a
storm rolls in with flash and
thunder, washing away the day's
dust and heat. Once again the her-
bal leaves sparkle a rich, vibrani
green, rain drops clinging to each
trembling leaf.
