S?�R�m?nJrates �PP�sition T� Drinking Age Increase
�. LlTu ways for North Carolina to get The bill said North rvmih. o-n- .u.
AMtetaat Htm Mil or
The SGA passed a resolution
Monday which would chastise the
federal government for pressur-
ing states to adopt bills raising
the minimum drinking age to 21.
Billions of dollars in highway
revenue would be lost if N.C.
lawmakers decided not to raise
the minimum drinking age.
However, a special clause in the
bill the SGA supports would
allow North Carolina to wait un-
til Dec. 31, I98e before raising
the drinking age and to lower the
age to 19 if the desired results are
not achieved
Speaker of the Legislature Kirk
Shelley said the North Carolina
Student Legislature passed the
resolution and other universities
across the state are also deciding
their support on the resolution.
Richard Wynne proposed to
the legislature that another clause
be added to the resolution, which
would also let N.C. lawmakers
know that the ECU � SGA does
not in any case support the rais-
ing of the drinking age to 21.
"It's blackmail Wynne said.
"We shouldn't let them (the
federal government) step on us
like that. 1 think there are other
ways for North Carolina t
revenue for its highways
Day legislator Dennis Kilcoyne
said North Carolina has more
maintained roads than any other
state. "There really is no other
alternative but to comply with the
federal government
Shelley added that if the bill
was passed, North Carolina
would lose $57 billion. "We want
the N.C. Legislature to know that
ECU supports the bill allowing us
to wait until the last moment
Wynne said after the meeting that
he plans to introduce legislation
next week which will show ECU's
disapproval of the bill.
The bill said North Carolina
could lose substantial funds if the
drinking age has not been raised
to 21 by Oct. 1, 1986. It further
states that five percent of
highway funds will be lost, and
by 1988, an additional 10 percent
will be withheld from those states
that still have not adopted the
minimum drinking age.
The second bill offered to the
SGA for consideration said the
drinking age would be a gradual
increase from 20 to 21 years of
age by July 1, 1985.
The third bill simply slates that
the drinking age would be raised
to 21 by Sept. 1985.
Shelley said the resolution
passed last night will "definitely
have an impact" on the General
Assembly's voting concerning the
In other SGA business, the
ECU Rehabilitation Association
received a transfer of funds for
transportation costs.
A voice vote was taken and the
legislators voted unanimously to
transfer the funds.
The School of Art received a
transfer of funds of $3,400 to
match grants by the federal
government. The Minority Stu-
dent Organization also received a
transfer of funds for $344 for
contracted services.
AFROTC received $100
transportation to a parade.
Shelley also told the legislators
about the conference by the N.C.
Student Legislators recently held
in Raleigh. "We did very well.
ECU ranked in the top three
schools in N.C. as having the best
student legislature. I think that
reflects on all of you he said.
At the meeting Shelley was presi-
dent pro tempore as well as v oted
best speaker among other N.C.
legislators. Also, Gordon Walker
was elected Lt. Gov. of the

ships for tuition and expenses.
The scholarships are renewable.
Eventually the program will

Scholars awards.
The following students were

Large Percentage Of Rapes Unreported
Justice Department study
estimated Sunday that nearly half
the rapes from 1973 to 1982
weren't reported, and an official
suggested that victims didn't
come forward because they
feared reprisal, public identifica-
tion or entanglement in the
justice system.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics
report said that 40 percent of the
estimated 479,000 women raped
in the period did not report the
crime and that 49 percent of the
1.03 million attempted rapes dur-
ing the period were unreported.
In addition, there were an
estimated 123,000 male rape vic-
tims during the period, the
bureau found. ,
The information comes from
data collected annually by the
bureau, which questions 123,000
people 12 years and older in
60,000 households every year
about their crime experience in
the past year. The responses were
used to estimate the number of
rapes nationwide.
The bureau estimated that
more than 70 percent of rape vic-
tims are unmarried women, 63
percent are younger than 25 and
53 percent are from low-income
Eighty-one percent of the vic-
tims are white, but black women
are significantly more likely to be
raped compared to their propor-
tion found in the general popula-
tion, the report found.
Assistant Attorney General
Lois Haight Herrington, who
heads the department's Office of
Justice Programs, said rape vic-
tims are hesitant to come forward
for a variety of reasons.
"Sexual assault victims would
be more likely to report the crime
if they did not fear becoming en-
tangled in the morass of an insen-
sitive criminal justice system
Herrington said.
She said rape victims also may
hesitate to come forward "know-
ing their addresses and phone
numbers may be made public.
They fear intimidation, threats
and even reprisal from the defen-
dant and his friends That, too,
may be changed under proposed
model state legislation.

Dirty Tricks
SGA Elections Had A Few
The recent SGA Executive Elec-
tions revealed many good points.
From the three qualified can-
didates, we have picked a president
who exhibits a unique determina-
tion to roll up his sleeves and get
the job done. We picked a rising
sophomore to be secretary,
perhaps leading her to consider
bigger things in the years ahead.
Students who voted numbered
close to 2,000, not a good year, but
certainly not a bad year.
Yet, the good things cannot
completely cover the bad. Unfor-
tunately, the dirty tricks and
negative, scum-and-smear tactics
of other elections have trickled
down to ECU. Sure, you might say
everyone does it. Ignore the little
things, you say. Well, certainly
East Carolinian staff members saw
petty violations here and there.
But, we are not discussing a poster
on glass here or a pamphlet on
wood there. No, what we're talk-
ing about is not illegal. It is allow-
ed. But, it's unethical and it stinks.
A flier circulated election-day
Wednesday had all the elements of
(although in crude form) of a Con-
gressional Club smear. The eight-
by-ten ditto directed its fire at can-
didate Mike McPartland. By im-
plication, the anonymous authors
of the flier said that McPartland
would dish out jobs to fraternity
members. It falsely concluded that
the SGA president controlled jobs
a jGA Refrigerator Rentals, The
East Carolinian and the Student
Transit System.
Some may say that this is politics
� but it's not, damn it. If people
get the attitude in college that it's
perfectly okay to lie about your
opponent, those same people are
going to make the world an ugly
place. McPartland, Brown and
Shelley should have been attacked
on their records. Each had served
the students for at least three
years; there was ample room to
question each.
To the people who made the flier
(and we have an idea who you are,
though we can't prove it), we cor-
dially invite you to go to some
other school and get the hell off
our campus. Tough, hardball
politics is one-thing, slander and li-
bel is another.
We don't know if your "hit
piece" helped or hurt. We just
wish the candidates had the time to
sort fact from fiction. Maybe the
students exposed to your false ac-
cusations now will repudiate this
type of tactic later. In other words,
maybe come the next congressional
or presidential election the people
hit in college with this will be sick
of your sickness.
Milton once said in Areopagitica
that when truth and falsehood
grapple, the winner will be truth.
In fact, our society is based on the
"correction" principle of free
speech. Yet, in this case, the truth
came too late. And that's why the
perpetrators perpetrated.
We feel the elections are valid
since what we're talking about
doesn't, as we said, break any
rules. Yet, it shouldn't have been
allowed to happen. As a grocer
under different circumstances at a
legislative committee hearing said,
"If Abraham Lincoln was alive to-
day, he would turn over in his
Ask Me, Please
Lately, there have been pressing ques-
tions pondered by the students of this
great and powerful campus. Like, what
are the Ruskies up to and is Ronnie really
going to make someone's day.
But for those who really delve into the
more important subjects of our epoch,
here are some answers.
First, everyone wants to know who is
going to win the NCAA basketball tour-
nament. Is there anyone left to defeat
Georgetown? Not likely. East Carolina,
Lehigh and Florida International had the
best chance of beating the Hoyas. But
Lehigh played a poor First half and East
Carolina and Florida I. were robbed of a
post-season bid.
Will Gorbachev s (what the media says
notwithstanding, its Gorbaycheev) wife
sing in a video with Cindy Lauper?
Rumor circulating amongst the Western
media has it that she will turn down a con-
tract to be the next Ivory Girl so she can
perform with Miss Lauper in "From New
York With Love CNN will carry a
broadcast a day before the debut, "The
Making of Mrs. Gorbachev
Does Jesse Helms plan to buy the
Miami Dolphins? Well, sources say the
senator is concerned with the liberal play
calling of Dan Marino, who passed way
too much last season. Helms says if he
takes over, he will make the coaches run
the ball up the middle on each play. Fur-
ther, there will be no more going for a
first down on a fourth and one, and at-
tempting long field goals is out.
Is there any chance that Pee Dee will
return to EC IP. Not a chance. Pee has
unequivically expressed his desire to re-
main in Spain where he is cheering
picadors. Pee says he abhores the
slaughtering of mammals. But, like he
reasons, it's no different than what he saw
last football season.
What will be the next shake up in the
athletic department at ECU? Sources
have it that Chancellor Howell will fire
Ken Karr and make him the wrestling
coach. Hal Baird will be retrieved from
Auburn to be athletic director, and Assis-
tant to the Chancellor Chuck Blake will
take over the men's basketball team,
which will be co-ed next year. Charlie
Harrison is headed to Indiana as an assis-
tant, and will be responsible for holding
down Bobby Knight's chair during games.
That's all for now folks.

hopped off a tobacco freight so he could
try out for the ECU basketball team. He
made it.)

former East Carolinian staff member.)
U.S. Involvement Uncool
In his book Inevitable Revolutions,
historian Walter LaFeber traces U.S.
involvement in Central America over
the last 150 years. LaFeber's analysis
primarily focuses on the escalating in-
volvement of American corporations
and, concomitantly, the American
military in the region.
According to LaFeber, no matter
what guise U.S. policy toward Central
America advanced under, it was always
shaped by, at least in part, corporate
economic interest. The combined
policies of the U.S. government and
U.Sbased multinational corporations
ultimately led to a form of dependency
in which the economic growth of Cen-
tral American countries was stunted
because they were forced to rely on one
or two main export crops or minerals
that were shipped off to industrial na-
From The Left

fvC $&
-mis isa
m-JHfcfc nun
These few export crops, such as
bananas or coffee, made a healthy
domestic economy impossible because
their price depended on an international
marketplace which the industrial
powers, not Central America, controll-
ed. These export crops also used up
land that should have been used to grow
food stuffs for local diets. Thus
malnutrition, even starvation, grew
with the profits of the small number of
producers of export crops.
Dependency, according to LaFeber,
has also skewed Central American
politics. The key export crops have been
controlled by foreign investors or local
elites who depend on foreigners for
capital, markets and, often, personal
protection. These foreign influences ex-
cercised a power that distorted
economic and political development
without taking direct control of the
One example of this is the overthrow
of the democratically elected govern-
ment of Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala
in 1954. The United Fruit Company
had bribed dictators who ran the coun-
try prior to 1944 until it owned almost
half of the country's land. It paid
miniscule taxes, was virtually exempt
from import duties and had bluntly re-
jected all requests from previous
governments that new arrangements be
negotiated. At the other extreme, by
1952 about half of the agricultural
population owned under four percent
of the land and per capita income in the
rural areas amounted to $89.15 a year.
Malnutrition was not only rampant but
worsening, as banana and coffee plan-
tations spread over areas that once grew
staple diet crops.
It seemed entirely logical, then, that
the Arbenz government began to in-
itiate a program of land reform which
proved highly successful in the early
stages in terms of increasing
agricultural productivity. It ran into
trouble, however, when Arbenz an-
nounced that his government announc-
ed it was expropriating 234,000 acres of
land that the United Fruit Company
owned but was not cultivating.
Arbenz offered to pay the company
what it claimed the land was worth �
$1 million. United Fruit became
agitated and disgruntled, claiming the
land was worth 16 times that amount-
Arbenz also drew up blueprints for
new roads and railways that threatened
to break the monopoly that United
Fruit had over the nation's transporta-
tion through its international railways
in Central America.
Almost immediately united rruit
launched a massive lobbying campaign
for U.S. intervention, exploiting the
close ties that it had with the
Eisenhower administration and accus-
ing Arbenz of moving toward com-
munism. On June 18, 1954 its efforts
paid off as a CIA-directed counter-
revolution and coup overthrew the
Arbenz government and installed the
military dictatorship that persists to this
very day in its place.
The dictatorship evolved into a
notorious regime noted for shootings,
beheadings and torturing political op-
ponents. Amnesty International ranked
it as one of the worst human rights
abusers in the world, and the Carter ad-
ministration refused to send it further
military aid in 1977. By 1981, however,
though the Guatemalan government
had not changed its policies, the U.S.
government had. The Reagan ad-
ministration resumed sending military
aid to Guatemala as part of its Central
America policy.
Throughout all of Central America,
U.S. corporations such as United
Brands (formerly United Fruit), Stan-
dard Fruit, Del Monte and Phelps
Dodge copper have played and continue
to play roles that are less dramatic, but
no less similar. They have come to de-
pend on Latin American dictators and
native oligarchs to protect their in-
terests. Thus, they clearly support
maintaining a status-quo of extreme
class polarization, poverty and brutality
that characterizes Central American na-
The U.S. government supports this
policy in the name of anti-communism
and of protecting its security interests.
Too often, however, its security in-
terests are identified with the economic
interests of corporations, and an attack
upon corporate monopoly over land or
markets is taken as a sign of com-
When El Salvador President Jose
Napoleon Duarte announced the ter-
mination of peace talks with the guerilla
leaders of the FMLN-FDR he tacitly
admitted that the peace talks were a
facade to begin with. They were mereh
designed to win more financial support
from the U.S. Congress. As a new ship-
ment of aircraft reached the countrv
bolstering the Salvadoran air force so
that it includes 50 helicopters (up 100
percent from a year ago), nine A-37 jets
(up 50 percent) and two new AC-47s, he
can rest secure in the knowledge that he
acheived his objective.
Yet, with reports that the same CIA
that spent $2 million to insure his own
election, (thus quelling much congres-
sional opposition to the Reagan ad-
ministration's military aid requests) is
planning to lend support to the
ARENA party in upcoming legislative
elections, Duarte has other things to
concern himself with. The Reagan ad-
ministration apparently wants to make
sure that the ARENA party, which was
founded by Roberto D'Aubuisson, wi
retain a sufficient piece of the political
pie to keep them from destabilizing the
Yet, such a tactic smacks of pro-
found moral poverty since the right-
wing ARENA party will invariably
block even minimal land reform and
other measures that the Reagan ad-
ministration has claimed it supports
Moreover, as U.S. involvement in the
civil war enters its seventh year, the
bipartisan Arms Control And Foreign
Policy Caucus has issued a report ac-
cusing the Reagan administration of
providing "overly optimistic reports
on the progress of the counter insurgen-
cy war.
In light of these facts, the Reagan
policy in Central America is revealed to
be military victory in which the victory
is a victory for the oppressors. This is
especially clear when according to
Amnesty International, 85 percent of
death squad killings in El Salvador are
directly linked to the military. To ex-
pect Americans to support such a policy
with their tax money, much less to fight
and die on behalf of it, is morally
Things I Thought Of
Oh my, boys and girls and others, it can't be happening. I was at the
mall on Friday night sitting on a wooden bench in front of Belks with a
melting ice cream cone in my hand, when suddenly three aging hippies ac-
costed me. "Yo, man. You're Greg Rideout. Wow, we are mad, yes, mad
at you. You stopped writing that article with the thoughts resembling our
acid trips
Well, quickly I decided that if I were not to be interminably tormented
by these decrepid flower children I better write. You got it. The righteous,

Why do sales people always bug you when you go in stores? Just one

I take a loafer, bop him over the head and run to the Chik-Fil-A for cover
He'll never ask me for help again, darn it.
Ah, automation. A new mechanical circumciser has been put in to use at
the ECU Medical School. Dr. I. Cut Weenee said the new machine has
made the ageless procedure more efficient and less costly. A trial run on 50
males produced no mishaps as the infants were hurtled threw the device on
a speedy conveyor belt. The modern medical machine grabs, slices dices
purees and throws away. Weenee, an anatomy professor, said next week'
girls will be tested.
Also on the medical trail. Two Swedish breast researchers have concluded
that the size of a woman's mammaries is directly proportional to her abili

Melanie had the unfortunate experience of learning an American
stom while she was in Heredia. "I was apprehended and ques-
: for taking pictures of the U.S. Embassy. 1 asked a Heredian

Most oi Melanie's trip was spent studying at the L'niversidad Na-
cional during the week and going on program-related field trips on
the weekend But when she did have free time, she usually spent it
with her family. "Thev were very proud of their country and would
take me sight-seeing, like to the beach or San Juan
Melanie's family also took her to their plantation and allowed
her to work at most of the jobs. "I wanted to experience
everything she said. "So, my father had me do each phase of the
process, from hauling bananas to the factory to washing, sorting,
stamping, and finally packaging them for shipment.
Melanie was very psyched about aborbing experiences and get-
ting the most out of her stay in Costa Rica.
Things went differently for Bruce Payne when he participated in
the program. I ike Melanie, he also was apprehensive about going.
'Things were a little heated in parts of Central America explain-
ed Bruce "And 1 was a staunch Reaganite so I thought things
could possibly get a little hairv "
He also spent four years in the Air Force, but his stay in Costa
Rica was his first trip out of his own culture.
After arriving in Heredia, like many of the students, Bruce ex-
perienced culture shock Most students got over it quickly, but it
took him much longer to adjust. "I stayed with a middle class fami-
ly who reallv treated me good, but I had a tough time adjusting
he said.
Bruce had difficulty with the language and some of the customs.
And it took about a month for the shock to set in and take hold.
When it did, it was almost too much for Bruce to handle. "1
couldn't take it anymore he said. "I had to get off by myself and
deal with it.
"One custom that really irritated me was the way men approach-
ed women on the street he remarked. Throughout Spanish
America, it is traditional for young men to approach the women by
making flirtacious advances and giving various "cat calls
"At first I thought it was crude and ignorant Bruce stated.
"But after understanding it as a way of having fun and (realizing)
that the women (Costa Ricans) weren't bothered by it, I really got
into it. Hey he exclaimed, "I was in their country and these were
their customs. What right did I have to make them change to my
way of thinking?
"That was when 1 started to really enjoy myself. It was like a door
opening 1 began to think of the world as a whole with each country
having something to offer
Both Bruce and Melanie agreed that the trip offered valuable in-
sight and taught them a lot about themselves.
"I began thinking of our (U.S.) involvement down there Bruce
said emphatically. "Are we down there for our interests or theirs?"
He added, "The people down there are neutral. They could give a
damn about capitalism and communism. They just want something
to eat, a roof over their heads and to be left alone
Bruce was so affected by his experience that when the opportuni-
ty came up last summer to work there, he seized it. During that trip,
he didn't stay with a middle-class family. And there wasn't any
running water where he stayed. "But I loved it he exclaimed.
"The first time was a time of indoctrination and opinions. The se-
cond times was an adventure

L. Nimoy Anticipates 'Star Trek IV
lalcraaUouJ Photo Vtwi
As long as the cast is able,
"Star Trek" films will continue
to be made with Star Trek IV
scheduled to begin production in
late fall or early winter, accor-
ding to Leonard Nimoy who
played Mr. Spock on the "Star
Trek" series and Films and
directed Star Trek III: The
Search For Spock.
"We have hired a couple of
writers and they have a terrific
idea for a script, but right now
the writers are on strike, so they
are not supposed to be writing or
talking about their scripts
Nimoy told us during an nour-
and-a-half interview about "Star
Trek" and the Spock character.
"I have high hopes that the
Writer's Guild strike will be over
soon and they will go back to
writing Nimoy continued.
"The plan right now is for us to
begin Filming in late fall or early
winter for release next year, in
1986, which is the twentieth an-
niversary of the 'Star Trek'
television series. 1 will be direc-
ting Star Trek IV
Nimoy feels Star Trek IV will
have to begin where part three
left off. The crew of the Enter-
prise will be in trouble because he
stole the Enterprise to find Spock
on the planet Genesis. The Kl-
ingon's are upset because he kill-
ed the crew of their battle cruiser
and stole the cruiser after the
Enterprise was destroyed.
Once again he will play Mr.
Spock in the Film, but the
character will have to recuperate
from his death and rebirth. "You
will remember that Spock said at
the end of 'Star Trek III 'Jim,
your name is Jim as he passes
Kirk Nimoy recalled. "I think
it would be funny if in the first
scene of Star Trek IV he walks up
to McCoy and says, Jim, your
name is Jim and he walks up to
Sulu and says, Jim, your name is
Boston-born, Nimoy began his
career as a child actor. At the age
of 18, after completing a course
at Boston College on a drama
scholarship, he headed west for
more training at the Pasadena
Playhouse. Soon, brought to the
attention of the film studios,
Nimoy appeared in a quick suc-
cession of movies in the early
1950s, including Queen For a
Day, Francis Goes To West
Point, The Overland Trail, and
the title role in Kid Monk Baroni.
After marrying actress Sandi
Zober in 1954, Nimoy and his
wife spent 18 months in Georgia,
where he wrote, narrated and
emceed GI shows as part of his
duties with the Army Special Ser-
vices Detachment at Fort
McPhearson. He also worked
with the Atlanta Theatre Guild
where he directed and played the
role of Stanley Kowalski in A
Streetcar amed Desire.
By the early 1960s, Nimoy had
graduated from bit parts to guest-
staring roles on most of the ma-
jor television series. While guest-
staring on a series, "Star Trek"
creator Gene Roddenberry ap-
proached Nimoy and offered him
the role of Spock.
"My favorite episodes of 'Star
Trek' would have to deal with a
speciFic event that happened to
the Spock character or something
that happened in a particular
episode that made me identify
with that episode Nimoy ex-
"The two-part 'Menagerie
which was made with parts of our
original pilot, was very good he
continued. "I thought 'The City
on the Edge of Forever' was a
great show. The story took place
in 1930 and it had a love scene
between Bill Shatner and Joan
"There was a show called 'The
Devil in the Dark' which 1
thought was a wonderful story
about the fear of the unknown.
There was a story called 'The
Enemy Within' which was our
version of the 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde' story which was the
episode where the Vulcan nerve
pinch was created.
"In the story two Kirks are
beamed aboard the Enterprise, a
good Kirk and a bad Kirk. The
script called for me to sneak up
behind the evil Kirk when he is
holding a weapon and hit him on
the head with a gun. I told ,u-
director that was 'Gunsmoke
not 'Star Trek
"1 explained to the director my
idea for the Vulcan nerve pinch.
He had no idea what I was talk-
ing about, but Bill (Shatner) liked
the idea so we used it. From then
on Spock didn't have to fight.
Bill would do all the fighting and
all I had to do w as pinch a neck
The Vulcan greeting was also
developed by Nimoy in an
episode called "Amok Time
"For me a very special episode
was 'Amok Time where Spock
was in heat and where the Vulcan
greeting was born Nimoy ex-
plained. "Since we were going
back to Vulcan for the first time
for Spock to marry, I felt we
needed a special greeting so I told
the director, 'Military people
salute, people shake hands, so we
have to Find something special
for Vulcans to do.

Jewish family and as a kid I went

Homer Barrage Dumps Bucs
Staff Wrtlar
North Carolina blasted the
baseball Pirates 19-5 Thursday at
Harrington Field in what, at
times, seemed like batting prac-
tice for the Tar Heel squad.
Dominating the game from the
start, UNC opened with a pair of
two-run homers by Scott
Johnson and Walt Weiss for a 4-0
lead before the large crowd of
cold spectators and the WZMB-
radio audience could get settled
in good.
ECU responded in the bottom
of the first with a two-run homer
by Winfred Johnson to cut the
lead in half, but it was the only
real offensive display of the day
for the Pirates.
The Tar Heels continued to
pound ECU starting pitcher Dan-
ny Culpepper in the second, with
a two-run double by Matt
Surhoff increasing the margin to
6-2. Devy Bell hit the third UNC
two-run homer of the day, then
(Scott) Johnson blasted the se-
cond of his three homeruns for
the day, to put it out of reach for
the Pirates. Chubby Butler came
on in relief in the second to get
the final out of the inning.
Three consecutive walks by the
UNC starter, followed by a wild
pitch brought in one run for
ECU, then a sacrifice fly by Greg
Hardison scored one more run.
Chris Bradberry advanced Mark
Shank to third on a ground out,
then Shank came home on a wild
pitch for the final Pirate run.
Doug Torborg came on in relief
to end the inning and allowed no
further runs for ECU.
(Scott) Johnson singled in a
run in the fourth inning for the
Tar Heels, then another one
tallied on a sacrifice fly to make it
11-5 through the fourth.
The relievers for both squads
managed to quiet the bats up to
the eighth, but a run still scored
for UNC in the fifth on a walk
which eventually turned into a
run, off another wild pitch. The
combination of bad weather and
the 12-5 score led to a mass fan
exit at this point.
ECU threatened in the fifth,
sixth and seventh innings as a
result of walks, errors and a
Chris Bradberry single, but
double-plays ended all three of
these scoring opportunities.
The Pirates finally held the Tar
Heels scoreless again in the sixth,
although (Scott) Johnson got a
double to continue his hitting
streak. Defensively, Mark
Cockrell provided one of the few
ECU highlights of the day when
he snagged a hard liner at third
for an out.
UNC made wholesale changes
in their lineup in the seventh,
with almost every player moving
to different positions. After fail-
ing to score in this inning, they
added five more in the eighth.
After another run came in on
three straight singles and a walk
loaded the bases, Tom Webb
then became the third Pirate pit-
cher. A sacrifice fly moved the
score to 14-5, then an error by
Winfred Johnson let in two
more. A single by Alvin Taylor
made it 17-5.
Webb started the ninth with
one of the few strikeouts by
Pirate pitchers, but then Surtoff
slammed the fifth UNC homer,
followed by Scott Johnson's
third homer of the day, which
made the final score 19-5.
A number of errors, wild pit-
ches, walks and mental mistakes
cost the Pirates dearly, but ECU
really suffered a crippling blow
when they failed to narrow a 9-5
lead after holding the Tar Heels
scoreless in the third. Two con-
secutive batters were called out
on third strikes at this pivotal
point in the game. The loss drop-
ped the ECU season mark to

After six days of spring prac-

However, ECU lost 30 players

that the defensive line and wide
receiver positions will be the big-
gest question mark, with few ex-
perienced returnees.
"Right now, the defensive line
and wide receiver positions are
the weak points Baker said.
"We just don't have people who
have established themselves at
these positions
A strong point for the Pirates
in '85 will be the offeasive line.
Returning players from last
year's squad include Tim Dumas
(tackle), who suffered through a
disappointing 1984 season due to
a leg injury. Rich Autry will

before accepting a scholarship to
attend ECU.
While at ECU, he ran the 100

being a member of 4 X 100-meter
relay team. Last year, Evans,
along with teammates Chris
Brooks, Nathan McCorkle and

some work in the passing game,
but is optimistic on the whole.
"Ron (Jones) and Darrell

good job running the option, but
they need work on the passing

One dimension that will be
missing from a year ago is the
game-breaking threat of Henry

feels that Williams' effort will be
sorely missed, he believes that
ECU will rely less on any 'one'

philosophies for a new coach in a
new program.
"Some coaches get rid of all
the old players and bring in new
ones to take their places Baker
said. "The other option is to take
the players on hand, knowing
you have to play your schedule
newcomers in.
The transition from former
coach Ed Emory to Baker wasn't
too difficult because of the fact
that Baker was an assistant at
ECU in '83. He is also familiar
with the older players and sees no
problems dealing with them.
"The player's attitudes have
been very good Baker said.
"I'm pleased with the senior
leadership and have no plans to
ditch any of them
Baker's initial season at ECU
has been made more difficult due
to the resignations of two

The 1985 Pirate slate is as
tough as ever as ECU hosts Sc
Carolina, Temple, Tulsa and

conductor Larry Wheeler if he

"He was quite good � we are
very happy to have him with us
Wheeler said. Wheeler plans to
include Muhammad in a Baroque
brass quartet for the orchestra's
next concert in late April.
Born as Calvin Vincent Raley
in Jacksonville, Fla the son of a
dairy-machine operator, Muham-
mad took piano lessons at age
six. He fell in love with drums in
the seventh grade, played trom-
bone in his high school band and
"went from one instrument to
another" with ease.
He quit the band to play foot-
ball and became an all-America
track star, clocking 9.3 seconds in
the 100-yard dash. "But my
music never left me he said at
Redskin Park where he works out
three time a week.
Muhammad won a football
scholarship to Texas Southern
University, where he majored in
Music. After a stint in the Cana-
dian Football League, he joined
the Raiders in 1982. While Raider
"bad boys" cultivated a reputa-
tion for eating glass for breakfast
and breaking opponents' bones
on Sunday afternoons, Muham-
mad spent his spare time playing
trombone with the Berkeley Sym-
phony Orchestra.
He took his Muslim name in
college. Muhammad means
praiseworthy and Saleem means
one who maintains a peaceful
state, not easily upset.
"The only time I'm frustrated
is when I make a mistake, when
it's my fault Muhammad said.
"I'm not intimidated by my op-
ponents. Sometimes it seems that
way, but it's just a show. I growl
on the field because if you seem
weak to them, they'll knock your
jock off.
