Computer
By JOYCE EVANS
Staff Writer
The departmental users have
progressed faster than ECU's
Computing Center, according to
William Little, operations
manager for the center.
The Burroughs 5500 (B5500)
computer is not capable of
handling the various terminal
needs of the users, said Little. He
cited the chemistry, physics, and
sociology departments as
examples.
Dr. Robert Morrison of the
ECU chemistry department said
the computer is too small in terms
of memory capacity and disc
storage space, and too slow for
some of that department's appli-
cations.
The big research jobs have
programs that require a oomputer
with a fairly large capacity.
Morrison said the B5500 is
simply not designed to handle the
terminals needed in the chemistry
department.
According to Little, the B5500
was a great machine in its day,
but it has now outlived the
center's needs.
The Burroughs machine was
purchased in 1972 at a cost of
$10,000 per month, including
maintenance, according to
Richard Lennon, director of the
center. He said the machine
would cost more at today's
inflated costs.
The lack of disc storage
prevents the machine from using
its full capacity, aooording to
Lennon. Overloading the data to
disc storage slows the machine
down.
The machine has a character
processing capacity of 256,000
characters per second, said Little.
"We need (a capacity of) over
a million characters he said.
The N.C. General Assembly
did not approve an increase
requested in the 1977-79 budget
to upgrade the oomputer system
here, aooording to Lennon. This
budget is reviewed on a biennial
basis.
"We have been unable to add
to the oomputer because of a lack
of funds Lennon said.
Lennon said there are two
methods by which to purchase a
computer if an adequate budget is
available-competitive bidding
and sole source procurement.
Competitive bidding occurs
when more than one vendor
competes in terms of prioe and
quality. Sole souroe procurement
is when one buys from a vendor
but does not receive bids from
others.
The estimates cost for a
machine capable of meeting the
needs of the center and its users
today is $1 million, aooording to
Robert Bolonde, assistant
director of the center.
THIS IS HOW the ECU Computing Center looked
before the Burroughs 5500 computer was
installed. IBM computers are no longer used in this
facility. The computing center is located in Austin
building.
He said the machine alone
would oost $900,000. With tapes,
disc, and communication lines,
the figure goes higher.
The inability to efficiently use
terminals for oomputer base is a
problem for the physics depart-
ment, according to Dr. James
Joyce.
Both physics and chemistry
departments have their own mini-
computers, but both are unable to
oonnect them with the center's
oomputer for research and ed-
ucational purposes
"We'd like to be able to use
the resources of the main oomp-
uter to analyze data rather than
use the mini-oomputer independ-
ently said Joyoe.
Students need to sit at
terminals and perform calcula-
tions related to the chemistry lab,
said Morrison.
"We have people,who are
keenly interested in doing
oomputer instructions he said.
This involves a student user
who sits at the terminal and
interacts with the main oomputer
by asking questions and receiving
answers from the machine.
"We teach all freshman
physics majors a simple language
called Basics which is designed to
be used over interactive
terminals Joyoe said.
Instead, the students are
required to submit their programs
on cards which are less satisfact-
ory than using terminals, he said.
The students could more
readily see their errors and more

Evangelist preaches to ECU students near CU
By STUART MORGAN
Staff Writer
Evangelist George "Jed"
Smock gave a sermon in the street
between the ECU Student Supply
Store and Rawl building last
Thursday.
The sermon began at 12 noon
and lasted about three hours.
During that time, Smock
condemned drugs and fornication
which he said exists at ECU. He
especially condemned the frater-
nities and sororities here.
"The fraternities and sorori-
ties are teaching their members
to become sex-maniacs and
drunkards he said.
He also condemned all
religions except Christianity.
"Buddah was nothing but a
pot-bellied thief and a liar
Smock said he turned on,
tuned in, dropped out and
became a hippie while in San
Francisco, California.
He said he went to North
Africa later, began hitchhiking
down the coast to Southern
Morocco, and joined a band of
hippes living on the beach.
"I worshipped the sun, chant-
ed, studied the Hindu philospohy,
walked naked, and adopted the
ways of the heathen he said.
But, Smock said that God
spoke to him. As a result, he
decided to change his ways and
return to his home Indiana.
Many students asked Smock
questions. Other students, often
angered at what he said, either
left a questioned Smock's right
to oondemn what he did.
He mentioned there were
many students in the crowd who
were Christiana
Some students merely watch-
ed and listened.
Despite Smock's being warn-
ed by a university policeman that
he wasn't allowed to preach
i without a permit, he was not
arrested.
"There exists a regulation
which prevents people from
speaking as this man did, unless
they're sponsored by a campus
organization and receive a permit
beforehand said Joe Calder,
director of seor'ty here.
" But the man did not create a
disturbance, was not a threat and
many of the students seemed to
enjoy his sermon; therefore, the
man was not arrested said
Calder.

Monitor raising operations halt for consideration
By DAVE THOMPSON
Staff Writer
Operations for the recovery of
the Union Civil War irondad ship
Monitor, have been haJted for the
winter months while researchers
consider various methods of
raising the vessel.
According to Dr. William Still,
ECU history professor, three
methods of recovery are being
examined by the Monitor Founda-
tion's Board of Trustees.
ROTC holds 'Dining
Out' Friday at MSC
By SCOTT BARNES
Staff Writer
The ECU ROTC program will
have its annual "Dining Out
this Friday at the Mendenhall
Student Center.
The event is formal in which
ROTC cadets will attend.
After dinner the junior cadets
will perform a skit according to
cadet spokesman Barry Lee.
The dining out is one of the
yearly activities of the ROTC.
These activities included a blood
drive, military ball, basketball
tournament and Christmas time
shows for underprivileged child-
ren.
The ROTC program itself
consists of 92 men and 23 women
cadets. Education is highly stres-
sed in the program by Col. Carl
Tadlock, a P.A.S. professor of
Aerospace Studies.
The majority of the cadets
hold at least a 3.0 average over
the required 2.0. Leadership in
the ROTC is taught by classroom
means, but mostly learned
through experience, according to
Lee.
There are many advantages in
ROTO A special program in
which the student may sign up for
one semester on a trial basis, and
there are no obligations such as
cutting hair.
Junior and senior cadets earn
$100 per month, tax free, plus
some travel benefits. Also, cadets
have a chance at two, three and
four year scholarships.
Any freshman a sophomore
students can join the ROTC at
anytime. By signing up in the
Wright Annex building, they are
inducted into the two year jGMC
program fa freshmen and sop-
homores. Juniors and seniors
joining the second two year
program, the POC, are accepted
based on their AFOQT and SAT
scores along with a meeting in
front of an officer's board.
The first method involves use
of the Glomar Explorer, owned by
a Howard Hughes corporation.
The Glomar Explorer is an
ocean-going research vessel
which would utilize large scoops
to bring up the Monitor along
with everything under and around
it.
The second method of recov-
ery would be to inject liquid
oxygen into the ship and bring it
up as a block of ice.
Disassembling the ship under
water and then bringing it up in
pieces is the third method under
consideration.
After the Union ironclad has
been brought to the surface, it
will be disassembled and chemi-
cally treated in order to be
preserved before being reassem-
bled.
Presently, work has been
halted fa the winter months due
to the rough seas off Cape
Hatter as.
Still has been waking ai the
project fa three years as the
histaical expert on the founda-
tion's Board of Trustees and at
the recovery site off Cape Hatter-
as.
Still said the actual raising of
the vessel is still about five years
away and will oost approximately
$15 million.
The Monita Research and
Recovery Foundation is a public-
ly-funded project under the con-
trol of the federal Department of
Commerce.
Once the ship is raised, Still
anticipates that the Department
of Commerce will step in to
determine where the Monitor will
be displayed.
Nafolk is the leading site at
the monent, he said.
When expeditioiary wak re-
sumes next spring, Still said that
oae samples of the Monitor's
wood will be taken to determine
the condition of the vessel.
Video-tapes taken underwater
have shown the ship to be in good
shape, accading to Still.
Once the ship is preserved
and reassembled, it will be set up
at a museum, possibly under-
water, at one of the sites under
consideration. 9ttll said he feels
that the Monitor has "enamous
potential" as a national tourist
attraction because of its histaical
significance.
Preservation of the ship is
necessary because the wood will
begin to rot when taken out of
water. Wak ai the ship aice its
raised will take place ai an
underwater barge.
COMPUTER
Continued from p. 1
quickly correct them a terminals,
he said.
When submitting cards to the
computer, the estimated turn-
around time is one to two hours,
said Joyce. This refers to the time
the computer takes to process the
information and provide an
answer.
Generally, a student could get
a program waking mae quickly
by terminals, aocading to Joyoe.
Both Joyce and Marisoi said
they hoped these problems would
be solved when the center gets a
new computer.
Dr. Marisoi has been ooila-
baating with a friend in Geagia
during the summers to program
the jobs the campus computer
cannot handle.
"We are pleased as faculty
members with the way we've
been waking with the directa
and the administration towards
improvements in computer ser-
vices, Joyce said. "We're finally
making progress
Joyce said a good interactive
computer system will open up
many possibilities in other areas
such as journalism and English.
The center is connected to
Triangle Park and this allows the
center to provide services through
terminals fa academic users.
Turn-around time is fifteen
minutes fa the TUCC terminal.
This has enabled the center to
handle some of its problems
relating to terminal services, said
Little.

Invasion of privacy
A nation-wide boycott is underway against
"Coors" beer because the Adolf Coors brewery in
Golden Colo, requires its job applicants to take a
polygraph (lie detector) test before they will be
considered for employment. The boycott began with
the employees' strike in April and has since been
gaining momentum steadily.
For the sake of this country's citizens' right to
privacy and personal dignity, such demeaning
practices must be stopped, not only in the "Coors"
company, but in all companies and areas of
employment which require such tests.
During these tests, questions are asked such as
"Do you smoke marijuana?" and "Are you or have
you ever been a member of the Communist Party
Some even ask questions pertaining to the applicants
sexual practices.
Coors is not the only company, by any means,
which uses this humiliating tactic to pry into its
employees' private lives. Several convenience food
chains and discount show stores also require their
employees to take a polygraph test. One shoe store
even makes its employees take the test repeatedly
throughout his or her employment.
These companies, along with "Coors are not
only invading the privacy of their employees, but
they are, in a sense, also denying them the protection
of the Fifth Amendment. A person applying for a job
does not know what the employer might do with the
information he receives from the polygraph. And
when the applicant is strapped to the lie detector
machine and asked something like, "Do you smoke
marijuana? he is trapped.
The private lives of employees, or potential
employees, are supposed to be protected by the
Constitutional right to privacy for non-public
persons. What a man or woman does on his or her
own time, away from the job, is not supposed to be
any of the employers' business. The employers
should be concerned with the employee's perfor-
mance on the job only.
One argument in favor of polygraph testing is that
it tests the applicant's honesty. This may be so, but
at the same time it is requiring a man or woman to
devulge his or her private affairs, affairs that are
none of the employers' business.
The companies which use these tests on job
applicants or regular employees should not only have
their products boycotted, but they should be left cold
without employees as well.

Reader defends European press
To FOUNTAINHEAD:
I wish to comment on the

-tive After reading the article I
had to ask myself if, perhaps,
Professor Baker had not been
misquoted. I have said that the
American press is "uniquely
objective" and must have caused
the raising of more than one
eyebrow. There are few news-
papers in France that are as
partisan as the Republican-orien-

though it is considered to be, the
New York Times has clearly been
most supportive of the Democra-

oombustion engine. These are
poisonous gases and I haven't
heard or seen much being done
about this problem. Women and
men must have clean air in order
to survive fa any length of time.
Right now the car companies are
trying to escape the Environmental
Protection Agency's deadlines for
auto emission standards. We are
wasting fuel and a more precious
resource, air.
If one plans well enough, I
know they can find many ways to
conserve. We know the problem
and it is up to us to act on it. This
problem can not continuously be
avoided. So I urge everyone to
seek ways to conserve, because
God gave us a mind to figure out
problems as well as react to them.
A concerned conserver,
T. Alex Cuningham
I also find it superficial and
dangerous to judge anything by
its cover or, as in this case, its
topography and make-up.
Content is certainly the most
important facet of a newspaper,
and many Americans would agree
that there are dailies in this
oountry that are well presented
but which say little. Europeans
would argue, and rightly so, that
to characterize most European
newspapers in a negative fashion
is unjust and incorrect, as is
evidenced by a reading of such
papers as the London Times, the
Corriere delta Sera, the
Frankfurter Allgememe and Le
Monde, just to mention an
obvious few.
In regard to Le Monde, I also
find it misleading to mention it in
an article that uses such words as
hodgepodge" and "circus" to
describe French newspapers.
Although the article does not
accuse Le Monde of such
inadequacies, one gets the
impression that this great news-
paper is just the best of a bad lot.
Besides smacking of a oertain
chauvinism and provincialism,
the fact of the matter is that many
experts consider it to be "one of
the top quality newspapers of the
world as is clearly stated on
page 93 in A Survey ol the
World's Journal ism, which can be
found in the reference room of
Joyner Library.

English prof publishes essays on Vonnegut
ByLYNNWHITENER
Staff Writer
Dr. Donald Lawler, ECU
English professor, recently pub-
lished a collection of essays about
famed science fiction novelist
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr which is now
available in the ECU Student
Supply Store.
"Vonnegut in America" has
been published by Seymour-Delta
Press and is co-edited by Lawler
and Jerome Klinkowitz, an
English professor at Northern
Iowa University.
The book grew out of a series
of discussions at a San Francisco
seminar that Lawler chaired in
1975.
"Critics weren't taking
Vonnegut seriously Lawler said
when asked about his motives.
"They failed to understand
him, and so tended to dismiss his
writings as trivia
The book includes basic in-
formation on Vonnegut, an exten-
sive bibliography, and a collection
of photographs of Vonnegut from
his childhood to the present.
Lawler has written three of the
essays in "Vonnegut in
America one entitled
"Vonnegut in Academia and
another is a critical essay on
Vonnegut's "The Sirens of
Titan
Lawler said he believes
Vonnegut will be remembered as
the Mark Twain of the 1960'sand
70's, and he compared the
similarities between the two.
' Both are midwesterners, and
approach the contemporary world
with the disenchantment of
modern man Lawler said.
Vonnegut has written an
introduction to one of Twain's
books and recently has deliber-
ately adapted his own personal
appearance to that of Twain's.
Lawler said he hopes that
Vonnegut in America will raise
the level of academic criticism
concerning Vonnegut.
The new publication is avail-
able locally in the Student Supply
Store, the University Book
Exchange, and the Book Barn
The oost is $8 85 for the hard-
back, and $3.95 fa paperback.

The Student Union Travel
Committee has planned four trips
this year for students, faculty,
staff, and alumni.
The seven member staff be-
gins planning for these trips each
spring.
"The budget appropriated by
theS.U. fa the Travel Committee
this year was $77,000 said Bill
Martin, chairperson of the Travel
Committee.
"Actually, oily $1,300 was
received because the trips gener-
ate about $76,000 in revenue
This amount is the largest on
the Student Union's budget, but
the committee has the smallest
subsidy of any group fa stamps,
telephaie bills, aientatiai meet-
ings fa the trips and other
expenses, aocording to Martin.
The student staff submits and
discusses ideas fa the trips.
Inquiries are sent to several
places, such as the New Yak
Travel Bureau for the N.Y.
Thanksgiving trip.
After evaluating the rates of
hotels and bus companies, deci-
sions are made and contracts are
signed including the amount of
spaces wanted.
Publicity is worked on
throughout the summer. This
year ECU'S radio station was
used extensively fa the first
time, said Martin.

Reauitment Committee related
plans to begin annual ECU DAY
next fall. One Saturday will be set
aside to have prospective

The prospective students will
be able to talk to advisas fran
each department, including the
General College, and they will
also be able to attend the hane
toot ball game that will fall oi the
scheduled date fa a reduced
admission price.
Topper said this event has
been held by NC State with great
success, and that Chapel Hill will
also begin a similar event next
fall.
The Senate was reminded that
nominations fa Chanoella will
be accepted until December first.
The rumor that the figure of

new Executive Director of Delta
Sigma Phi. He replaces the
retiring Pete Wacker.
On Sunday, November 13, six
girls were initiated into the Little
Sister program. They were Deb-
bie Stauffor, Vicky Gallian, Laurie
Nicholson, Delia Brown. Bebe
Jones, and Les Martin. This
increases the size of the little

great success and the brothers
would like to thank everyone that
came by to enjoy the dinner. The
preceding week, the brothers
were busy entertaining their
National Chapter Consultant, who
visited the ECU campus fa four
days.
With the help of Gene Cassel-
la, manager of the Mendenhall
Snack Bar, the brothers are now
enjoying home cooked meals four
nights a week. This is the first
real meal plan that the brothers of
Phi Kappa Tau have had in quite
a long time.
The work Cassella has done is
deeply appreciated. This week
the Phi Tau Hand Ball team
moved into second place in the
campus division and first place in
the fraternity division of the
Intramural Sports Activity.
Future events at th? Phi Tau
house will include a Christmas
Party and Tree Decoration set for

Associate Members and the sis-
tersof the Alpha Delta Pi sorority
will be collecting food and other
canned goods for needy families
in the Greenville area, in hopes of
giving some of them a happier
Thanksgiving this year.
The Kappa Sigma fraternity
is out fa an even better year than
they had last year. And with just
two and a half months into the
1978 school year, they have
accomplished a great deal. The
newly elected officers fa the
second semester are Eric Laster-
president, Bob Averett-vioe pres-

Alpha Xi Delta would like to
extend a belated congratulations
to Jandyl Masters, 1977 ECU
Homecoming Queen and Winner
of the Francis Blaker Award.
Jandyl has been an active mem-
ber of Alpha Xi fa five years and
has proved to be an asset to the
Gamma Phi Chapter.
Being the winner of the Blaker
Award means that she was
chosen as most outstanding plege
trainer over all chaptas in the
nation. We are proud to claim her
as a sister.
Alpha Xi was recently hostess
to a National Alpha Xi Delta field
ouunsela. Her visit was infama-

DeAngelo was highly impressed
with the functions and aganiza-
tioi of the chapter.
Newly elected pledge trainer
Laura Namandy had the oppa-
tunity to visit the National
Headquarters Oct. 7. She flew to
Indianapolis and together with
other pledge trainers compiled a

ters.
Laura now holds a seat in the
National Pledge Fraternity Edu-
cation Committee as a result of
her trip.
The Alpha Xi's are now busy

ABORTION:
The medical aspects reviewed
By DR. ROBERT G. BRAME
Chairman, Dept. of Obstetrics &
GynecoJogy
ECU School of Medicine
The North Carolina Legisla-
ture passed a permissive abortion
law in 1967 allowing women to
seek abortion and eliminating
many restrictions relating to
medical and social indications.
The legality of privacy of decision
without any constraint between
patient and physician subseq-
uently became a reality with a
Supreme Court decision.
The North Carolina Law stip-
ulated that abortion may be
performed for risk of threat to the
life of the mother, a grave risk of
birth of an impaired infant and for
rape a incest. No attempt was
made by that law to define risk to
health or birth of an impaired
infant, subjects of widely differ-
ing interpretations by both
physicians and patients
The later declaration by the
U.S. Supreme Court that decision
regarding abortion was not
subject to state or federal law
literally made abortion on
demand a reality, although most
states by this time had already
revised and made much less
restrictive their laws regarding
abortion. The Supreme Court
decision also prompted revision of
other state laws.
Almost all state laws stipulate
that abortions must be carried out
in an accredited facility and by
a licensed physician. State laws
relating to consent to abortion by
minors (under 18) without
parental concurrence have also
been the subject of considerable
disagreement and interpretation
but most physicians and institu-
tions adhere to a policy of
parental consent since the legality
of the right of self-determination
in this matter for minors has not
been decided in the courts.
At the present time in North
Carolina, abortion is a private
matter between patient and
physician although physicians
may refuse to perform abortions if
they object on moral or ethical
grounds.
Apparently some public con fusion
has arisen recently over
Congressional and HEW direct-
ives that Medicaid funds could
not be used to pay for abortions.
This position has apparently
provoked some belief that the
laws regarding abortion have
changed. Simply stated, they
have not, but Medicaid funds may
not be used to pay for the
procedure except in extenuating
circumstances. The net effect of
this ruling is the denial of public
funds. All patients may continue
to seek and obtain abortions but
indigent patients can no longer
have these medical expenses
covered by Medicaid funds.
Therapeutic abortion is the
f-ETUS SHOWING NORMAL development at 40-days.
terminology applied generally to
abortions in which a physician
surgically removes the pregnancy
from the uterus a uses drugs and.
instruments which provoke
abortion.
Spontaneous abortion refers,
to a loss of pregnancy prior to the
20th week due to natural caused
or acts of God. A surgice
procedure to ascertain that all of
the pregnancy has passed from
the uterus is frequently approp-
riate but should not be confusec'
with operations designed specific
ally to terminate a pregnancy.
Because of an earlier criminal
connotation to the word abortion,
miscarriage, which is equivalent
to spontaneous abortion, has
been considered a more polite
and socially acceptable term.
The use of the term thera-
peutic in reference to induced
abortions implies that the pro-
cedure is therapy and its goal is
therefore beneficial to the person
seeking the abortion, although
pro-life proponents would argue
that many are done fa conven-
ience and therefore could hardly
be considered therapeutic in the
full sense.
Almost all medically induced
abortions in this oountry take
place prior to the 20th week of
pregnancy. ' "D&C" operation
which requires no incision may ue
carried out up to the 12th week of
pregnancy. Pregnancies between
the 16th and 20th week usually
are terminated by the injection of
solutions, which provoke labor,
into the fluid surrounding the
fetus. Because of the technical
difficulty of either procedure
most pregnancies are not term-
inated between the 12th and 16th
weeks.
As a general rule, the greater
the weeks of gestation at which
one seeks an abortion, the higher
the complication rate associated
with the procedure. Maternal
deaths are extremely uncommon
prior to eight weeks whereas
pregnancy termination at 12-20
weeks, even with well-qualified
physicians in accredited hospitals
equals or exceeds the maternal
mortality associated with normal
childbirth.
Morbidity, or illness and
complications, similarly increases
parallel to the weeks of
pregnancy, so that a very strong
argument can be made for very
early termination if one seeks an
abortion.
That the procedure has been
well accepted by at least a portion
of the female population is
attested by the fact that in this
country approximately one-fourth
of all pregnancies end by abor-
tion. Some European countries
have experienced a rate of
abortion of one-third of all
pregnancies for many years, a
figure it appears that this oountry
will achieve very soon.
While there is little hard
scientific data to prove it, there is
much evidence that infant
morbidity and mortality in term
Hnoto oy Liarrai ix rume
births is diminished by a liberal
abortion policy, since at least a
part of the abortions are per fam-
ed in women who would have a
dim prospect of delivering a
namal healthy infant.
Whether the end justifies the
mean is outside the realm of this
treatise. One effect which has at
the least received suppat fran
the medical profession is the
virtual total elimination of
abatioi by untrained persoinel
in places ranging from motel
rooms to hase stables.
One result of these clandestine
intrusions has been the develop-
ment of severe infection in the
pelvic agans in some cases.
Some pregnant wonen falling
victim to these infections die as a
result and some of the ahers
suffer serious impairment to both
health and subsequent fertility.
The advent of legalized aoation
has largely eliminated this
medical and personal calamity.
No physician in his right mind,
whatever his attitude toward
abatioi, can be anything but
grateful fa the loss from his
practice of these unfortunate
women.
Pro-abatiaiists contend that
abatioi, like alcohol, cannot be
dispelled by a prohibition and
while no one knows the number of
illegal abotiois perfomed prio
to legalization of the procedure,
there is ample scientific and ,
epidemiologic evidence that out-
lawing the act simply takes it out
of the hospital and into darkened
oaners.
They further contend that
abortion is simply a medical
procedure like appendectomy and
is not a matter to be legislated, a
position which was upheld by the
Supreme Court. They conseq-
uently oontend that since it is
simply a medical matter, that
even though much of the popula-
tion opposes abortion, legislative
mandates on the issue represent
the despOism of the majaity.
Equally as loud voices are
heard from right-to-life groups
who contend that abortion is
murder. These groups both offer
and provoke arguments regarding
the time of attainment of life by
the fetus and moe ethereal, the
definition of life itself. Since a
fertilized ovum is living, in the
biological sense, almost any
definition of life may be invoked
and like beauty, its specifications
lie largely in the eyes of the
beholder.
Fetal heart tones can now be
detected at between eight and
twelve weeks of pregnancy, and
the fetus acquires a humanoid
appearance in all of its features
long befoe 20 weeks. With the
present state of our technology,
fetus at this early age has
virtually no chance of survival no
of developing, therefoe, a mean-
ingful existence as a human
being. The halls of justice have
apparently used these premises
as a basis fa the interpretatiai
that abatioi at this stage is a
medical procedure and is no the
taking of life.
Thoe are some incontrovert-
ible facts about abatioi: it is
safer when perfomed, early in
pregnancy, it is safer when
perfomed by a physician in an
appropriate medical facility, that
some wonen will seek abatioi
whether legal or illegal and
whether safe o not, that what-
ever the future legislative oourse
this nation follows, abatioi will
be viewed as immaal ,by sane,
and their wishes will appear to be
an enaoachment on privacy and
personal rights by ahers.
The time of attainment of life
by the fetus continues to provoke
disagreement but it is unlikely
that theologians and ethibsts will
arrive at a definition acceptable to
all, particularly as technological
advances permit the survival of
smaller and smaller fetuses. At
the prsent, election of abortion
by personal decision remains the
law of the land but no one is able
to predict its future.

When someone drinks too

that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your

could save.
If you knew what to say,
maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll

Don't hesitate because your

Editors Note: Journalism 2000
students participated in a class
project recently.
ECU journalism program
Freshmen study Journalism
By MELANIE EMERSON
Staff Writer
Many freshmen who come to
ECU want to pursue the field of
journalism. This is a field that is
very exciting and interesting, but
is one of the lowest paying jobs.
As the freshman works toward his
goal and finally becomes a
senior, he does two important
things: (1) applies fa graduation,
and (2) goes to the Placement
Office to talk to Fruney K. James,
director of the Placement Office,
to fill out an application for a job.
A Journalism 2000 student
talked to James about the job
opportunities available in the
field of journalism. James said
there are four different areas
open to applicants applying for
jobs in journalism.
One is being hired at a local or
daily newspaper firm. These
people who are hired to work as a
newspaper reporter do things
such as write news copies, and
take pictures. They enjoy this
type of work if they have always
enjoyed writing, and taking pic-
tures, says James.
The second job opening avail-
able is working for a radio station.
These people write newscopies
for radio announcers.
The third job opening is
working fa a television station.
These people do the same type of
wak as the people who work at
the radio station. The last job
oppatunity to be hired in is
different firms such as Carolina
Power and Light, Dupont,Accoun-
ting Firms, and Nath Carolina
Education Magazine
These firms want editas to
write about different develop-
ments taking place within the
firm.
James said that now there is a
newspaper Fund Reporting In-
ternship Program from Princeton,
New Jersey that is available fa
journalism minas to participate
in. The Newspaper Fund offers
scholarships grants and assis-
tance in finding summer news-
paper employment.
This employment consumes in
entire summer. The Newspaper
Fund urges applicants to this
program to have their reporting
and witing observed during the
fall months by a local professional
newspaper edita.
The editas should write the
Fund a recommendation about
the applicant. The applicant's last
recommendations should come
from a faculty member who is
familiar with his ability.
IRA BAKER, COORDINATOR of journalism program.
Journalists may pursue careers in science, trade
By REBECCA ROBINSON
Staff Writer
Journalism is reliable,
entertaining, providing opinion,
and servicing the econony.
A journalist today may pursue
not only the traditioial opportuni-
ties in newspaper, book, and
magazine publishing, but he may
also use his writing skills to locate
him a job in science, trade,
sports, and many other areas.
Book, magazine, and news-
paper publishing are most com-
ma! to journalistic pursuits. All
three are skilled trades, and
experience is helpful in obtaining
the limited job openings. The
business side of publishing in-
cludes opportunities in sales,
circulation, promotion, adverti-
sing sales, market research, and
production.
The writing portion includes
jobs fa publishers, editas, re-
paters, faeign carespaidents,
and columnists, to name a few. To
prepare fa a job in publishing, a
student should get a general arts
degree with an emphasis in
English and writing.
Agriculture communications,
the combinatioi ot agricultural
knowledge and skill writing,
includes interviews with farmers,
scientists, and industrialists;
reports oi new developments,
ideas, and trends; and attending
conventiois and legislative ses-
siois. Advancements may lead to
editas. advertising managers,
and public relations directas.
Technical writers in chemistry
and physical metallurgy are em-
ployed by technology journals
science magazines, science de-
partments of magazines and
newspapers, and as educatas
and administratas.
Positions available toelectron-
ics technical writer-editas are fa
technicians who compile, write,
and edit technical infamation,
and prepare repats and propo-
sals of a technical nature.
Baste rules exist for good interview
By LYNN LEDBETTER
Staff Writer
One of the most impatant
aspects of the journalist's job is
that of the interview procedure.
The journalist must follow some
basic rules in ader to perfam a
successful interview.
Preparation fa an interview
should begin as scon as the
journalist decides to ask fa it.
While asking fa the inter-
view, the journalist must be
candid with the source, explain-
ing that there are a lot of things
he (the journalist), does not know
about the subject of the interview,
even though he has done some
serious thinking about it, and that
he will do mae thinking and
research befae the interview.
Before the interview, the
journalist must find out every-
thing that he can about the
source, his aganization, etc. He
must check background
materials, read things the source
has written, and talk with assoc-
iates and acquaintances concern-
ing things of common interest.
While doing his homewak,
the journalist should prepare a
list of questions that he hopes to
ask and which will enable him to
reoeive the infamation he needs.
At the top of the list comes the
most important and comprehen-
sive questions.
The interviewer, usually
chooses the source's office a
home which serve to make the
source feel mae secure.
Throughout the interview, the
journalist uses language close to
that in which he expects to write
his story. English which is
conversational and informal, al-
though standard. The source is
also enoouraged to use language
in simple terms which the
average reader can understand.
After the interview, the jour-
nalist's job is not complete. He
must review the conversation arvi
naes and then write a rougi. �,
of the stay as soon as possible.
ECU Journalism major
possible in near future
COPV IS EDITED by the appropriate desk editors and sent to the composing room to be set into type.
By GEORGE OLSEN
Staff Writer
Fa the journalism student
who wants a maja in this field
but finds he can only attain a
mina at ECU, there is hope.
Accading to Ira Baker, head of
the ECU Journalism department,
a maja in journalism at ECU is a
definite possibility in the near
future.
However, he went on to
question whether there la a real
need fa it. This is due to the fact
that the majaity of ECU journal-
ism students who have attained
minas have been successfully
employed
It is suggested that those
interested in minaing in journal-
ism maja in a liberal arts field.
Those who would like to learn
mae about the field of journalism
should start with the Journalism
2000 course, an introduction to
mass media.
Journalism 2100, the study of
basic reporting, should be taken
after journalism 2000. After these
two courses, the student has a
frer hand in choosing his cour-
ses.

The Immigrants is 'powerful cinematic'
The Immigrants, , Howard
Fast's latest novel and the first of
a trilogy tracing the lives of three
California families over the twen-
tieth century, is a powerful,
cinematic book which follows the
entertwined lives of three immig-
rant families as they grow and
prosper in America. Set in turn of
the century San Francisco the
book abounds with opulent, vivid
images of the western city and of
the California coast.
In an interview with Roy
Newqulst, Fast said that "there
are few writers in today's Ameri-
ca who write literate and intelli-
gent work that can be read for
pleasure Whether or not one
agrees with his statement, it is
inordinately clear that Fast him-
self does write fiction which both
intrigues and entertains. The
Immigrants engulf the reader like
a great epic motion picture, with
the forces of history and personal-
ity clashing and coalescing to
make for a grand, poignant family
saga.
Dan Lavette is the son of a
French-Italian fisherman. He and
his father develop a special
closeness while working together,
out on the San Francisco

HOWARD FAST, AUTHOR of "The Immigrants
the nation's history, and Dan
Lavette returns to find his home
completely gutted by flames and
his parents dead.
Perhaps it is his early exper-
iences with poverty, or the horror
of finding his parents killed in the
blaze, or perhaps merely a
tenacity in the young Lavette's
blood which induces him to take
the boat (hisonly possession now)
and-begirvto make money carry-
ing people away from the ravaged
city.

the desire to live on "Nob Hill"
where the city's rich and powerful

live. Dav Lavette is a swarthily
handsome Italo-American who
commands respect. He meets
Jean Seldon, the beautiful daugh-
ter of one of the most influencial
banking magnates in San Frands-
oo and eventually marries her,
marries her money, and becomes
one of the city's most dashing
entrepeneurs.
Fast's sense of place and
history is astounding. San Fran-
cisco is a city that must rise from
it's ashes, and for those with the
vision to realize it, there is much
money to be made while the city
rebuilds. Dan Lavette is constant-
ly awake to the future and to what
it will bring. When Hawaii is still
a mere string of wild Pacific
Islands Dan already has plans to
build a hotel there and connect
the islands to the mainland by his
now large fleet of passenger
ships. Indeed, the first air-travel
west of the Rockies comes about
by the enterprising Lavette.
Although Dan Lavette suc-
ceeds in finding a place on "Nob
Hill" he realizes that that is not
necessarily what he wanted. Jean
Seldon, his beautiful wife, be-
comes estranged to him as well as
to their two children. She spends
her time patronizing the arts,
while the artists spend their time
patronizing her, and Dan wants
no part of that type of society.
Eventually their marriage exists
in name only. They stop sleeping
together and inhabit the immense
"Nob Hill" house almost as if
they were strangers to one
another.
Much of the book's interest
comes from Fast's depiction of
the families and individuals who
are swept along by Dan Lavette's
dynamism. Feng Wo is a China-
man hired from absolute poverty
to work as Lavette's accountant.
During the early part of the
century the Chinese were subjec-
ted to some of the worst racist
persecution ever in the United
States. As the various businesses
grow Feng Wo exhibits extra-
ordinary financial acumen. The
traditional Chinese is exceedingly
humble and only hesitatingly
invites Dan over to his house fa
dinner. There Dan meets Feng
Wo's daughter, May Ling, who is
an intelligent, sensitive young
woman. She eventually comes to
fill a place in his life which Jean,
his wife, used to fill. The conflict
between his real love for May
Ling and the economic necessity
of his staying married to Jean is
one of the major oonflicts of the
book. It is a conflict intensified by
the fact that Dan father's a son he
cannot claim by May Ling.
Jake Levy owned a small
chandler's shop on the Bay and
befriended Lavette while he was a
young man. They form a comple-
mentary pair; Dan having the
vision, the elan, in short, the
chutzpah necessary for great
business endeavor, while Jake
Levy provides the attention to
detail, the concern for small
matters which is also requisite for
success. The two eventually rise
to pre-imminent position toge-
ther. World War I, the completion
of the Panama Canal, and a
nation just beginning to tap
incomprehensible human and
natural resources have provided
them with the wave that they
must and do ride through the
world of big business.
Only the Great Depression
oould have stopped them. And
Dan Lavette learns a great and
central human lesson which one
must read the book to under-
stand. It is his great sense of
human desire and potential, and
of their resultant drama, that
makes Fast one of the most
exciting of America's authors
today.

It was announced late Monday
night that the East Carolina
football team was still under
consideration for a post season
bowl bid. The Independence Bowl
in Shreveport, Louisiana said that
it was considering three teams
East Carolina, Louisville and
Colgate.
As of 10.00 Wednesday night
it was not known who the bowl bid
might go to but it was believed
that East Carolina is probably the
first runner. Of course no official
word can come out until this
Saturday at 5.00 p.m but some
kind of varification is expected
soon.
The Independence Bowl is the
second newest bowl in the nation
this season. The champion of the
new Southland Conference gets
an automatic bowl bid and the
other team is picked from among
an outside opponent.
Last years bowl game proved
to be one of the most exciting
bowl attractions in the country as
McNeese State University upset
highly favored Tulsa University
of the Missouri Valley Conference
in the final seconds of play.
The bowl is played in Shreve-
port's 50,000 seat State Fair
Stadium. The date for this years
game is December 17.
This years winner of the
Southland Conference is Louis-
iana Tech which won a tight race
with Southwestern Louisiana for
the championship and the bowl
bid. Southwestern Louisiana of
course beat the Pirates in a tough
9-7 decision a few weeks ago.
Soccer is also in it s final weeks, as the playoffs for the men began
yesterday. The women's title match will be played Monday afternoon
at 4 p.m.
In the women's championship game the Fleming Foxes and Sigma
Sigma Sigma will square off. In the first round of mens play the
top-ranked Rugby Mules downed the seventh-ranked Scott Leather-
balls. The third-ranked Ayoock Kamikazes defeated the sixth-ranked
Belk Bay Bombers.
Other matches still must be played, especially in the fraternity
bracket of the playoffs. In that bracket five teams are vying for the
championships spot. The fifth-ranked Tekes must play the
ninth-ranked Kappa Alphas on Thursday at 4 p.m. fa the right to meet
the second-ranked Ph. Kappa Tau team on Sunday at 7 p.m. Kappa
Sigma, ranked eighth will meet Sigma Nu, ranked second, in the other
semifinal game at 6 p.m. on Sunday. The finals will be played on
Monday night. Phi Epsilon Kappa, the tenth-ranked team, did not
qualify fa the playoffs.

game victory. The Pirates are still under consideration for a spot in the Independence Bowl.
Pirate Club aids sports
Intramural Co-Rec bowling had some huge scaes last week. The
week's leader was Sandy Lamm of the Gutter Dusters. Lamm bowled
two games over 190, bowling a 201 on Tuesday and a 191 on Thursday
to lead the Dusters to a 5-1 week that pushed their season record to
15-1, the best in League B.
The week's highest scae went to Mike Nicholson of the Kappa
Sigma Dusters. Nicholson bowled a 212 on Tuesday against the Pin
Splitters and had four strikes in a row in the game. Ron Potter of the
Lemons bowled the other 200 soae of the week, hitting the magical
mark right on the nose with a 200 game on Wednesday. He had a
three-game average of 172.
In team standings, the Gutter Dusters hold a slim lead over Rose's
Team. The Gutter Dusters have a 15-1 recad with three matches left
and Rose's team is at 14-6 with two matches left.
In the other league, S.S.S. holds an unsurrnountable lead with a
23-1 recad. The Splits are in secoid place with a 15-5 recad and oie
match left to play.
The finals in the Co-Rec two-on-two basketball tournament have
been postponed until after Thanksgiving. The postponement was
needed after Al McCrimmons broke his finger in a semifinal game. He
and his partner, Gwen Soott, will play Darius Moae and Sheila Bowe
in the finals when they are played.
An officials clinic fa all students interested in officiating intramural
games this winter will be held on November 29 and 30 at 4 p.m in
Brewster Building room B-301. Anyone who wants to officiate must
attend both meetings to become eligible.
The Intramural pant standings have been updated and Scott Dam,
the Rugby Club, the Sadaharu Ohs, and the Lambda Chi Alpha
fraternity are the divisional leaders after football and track.

Funding athletic scholarshipi
has long been a maja responsi-
bility fa the Pirate Club, and it's
a job which Directa Gus Andrews
feels must progress steadily as
East Carolina continues its drive
towards maja college respecta-
bility.
The Pirate Club functions as
part of the ECU Educational
Foundation and is a separate
entity of the University itself. It is
solely responsible for raising
money fa athletic scholarships
which suppat the student-athle-
tes at East Carolina.
"Many people at East Caro-
lina and the surrounding area
seem to think the athletic depart-
ment has all the money in the
wald to spend on anything it
needs said Andrews, who is
now in his second year as directa
of the Pirate Club. "This is
simply not true. We are responsi-
ble fa raising all the rrwney fa
athletic scholarships, not the
athletic department
Befae the athletic budget is
prepared fa a fiscal year, An-
drews and Bill Cain, the ECU
athletic director determine a
financial goal fa the Pirate Club.
The club tries to meet that goal.
This year, the Pirate Club will
try to meet a $275,000 goal by the
end of the 1977-78 fiscal year to
finance athletic scholarships.
If the Pirate Club falls shat,
the maiey to finance the remain-
ing scholarships is drawn from
the total operating budget of the
athletic department, accading to
Andrews. On the other hand, if
the money raised surpasses the
goal, it is put back into the
athletic department's budget fa
other uses.
"East Carolina is a young
school and is just beginning to
develop an athletic tradition
said Andrews. "When you're
winning, it creates enthusiasm
among everyone and your mem-
bership will expand. Consequent-
ly, mae maiey canes back into
the program
In 1975, the NCAA imposed a
strict limit on the number of
scholarships which each spat
may have each season.
The NCAA currently allows 30
scholarshipsa year in football, 15
in basketball, 13 in baseball, 14 in
track and aoss oountry, 11 each
in wrestling and swimming, and
five apiece in golf and tennis.
"We're waking towards a
goal which will give us the limit in
each spat said Cain. "In ader
to accomplish that goal, we would
have to raise around $500,000.
That would give use the maxi-
mum number of scholarships we
would need in every sport
A full in-state scholarship at
East Carolina costs approximately
$2,100 while a full out-of-state
athletic scholarship costs around
$3,000, accading to Cain.
Athletic scholarships are just
like wak scholarships explain-
ed Cain. "Athletes wak hard
practicing all year and they have
to maintain their grades just like
the rest of the students on
campus. In one fam a the other,
all the athletes on campus wak
fa their scholarships
Cain also explained that the
athletic department receives
some scholarship funding
through the Basic Educational
Opportunity Grant Program
(BEOG) fa which all students on
campus, including athletes are
eligible. These grants which are
funded through the federal gov-
ernment are awarded on the basis
of need and are partially deter-
mined by such family's income.
"The BEOG probably saves
the athletic department about
$35,000 to $40,000 a year said
Cain. "Mae and mae of the
athletes recruited by ECU find
out that they qualify fa the

"We think it will be a little
better for the students said
Intramural Director Wayne Ed-
wards. "They will be running

The route will be marked off

police, who will direct trafficaway
from the route while the race is in
process. In addition the Chief of
Campus Security, JoeCalder, will
serve as the Master of Ceremon-
ies and the starter fa the race.
"The campus police have
helped set up the course and they
have volunteered to help with the

direct the runners on the oarect
route added Edwards. "There

Surfing club meets
On Tuesday, November 15,
the Spats Club Council held their
monthly meeting. The main topic
fa discussion was the possible
admittance of a surfing club as
part of the Spats Club Program
at ECU.
The president of the club went
befae the council and stated the
club's goals, objectives and activ-
ity repats. The representatives
fa the Surfing and Outing Club
left the rcon and the council
voted in fava of itsadmission.
Now that they are officially a
club, (East Carolina Club Surfing
Association), the club plans and
hopes to have a larger active
membership. The dub however
was not just famed fa
surfers but for anyone who
wished to go with the surf team
every other weekend to the Outer
Banks here in Nath Carolina.
The Outer Banks is beautiful
and has many things to offer
regardless of the time of year. If
you have been there befae you
know of this beauty. If you have
not you almost need to go out to
the islands and capture the
feeling the club gets when they
are out there.
Transpatation will be paid fa
by the money allocated to the club
so there is no problem as far as
that goes. We would like to urge
anyone who wishes to oome to a
meeting and see what it's all
about. There will be a discussion
of the next surf competition and
plans fa the rest of the year will
be made. Fund raising ideas will
be very helpful. The meeting will

Assistant Sports Editor
Dunk fever has struck the East
Carolina men's basketball team.
The disease was evident Tuesday
nite at Washington High School
as the Gold defeated the Purple in
another Buc exhibition game
137-118.
The proverbial "stuff was
the dominant figure as Greg
Cornelius, Herb Gray, Roger
Carr, Bernard Hill, and Oliver
Mack amazed spectators with
their "above the hoop" play.
Mack led all scorers with a
meager 42 points. Cornelius
added 32, Herb Krusen 38, and
Roger Carr scored 22; 19 in the
second half.
Highly recruited High School
star Alvis Rodgers of Washington
High School looked on as the Gold
team scored 81 second half points
after leading 50-31 at the half.
Coach Gillman, looking more
and more like a college coach
jumped up and down, squirmed
in his seat, and yelled instructions
profusely at his young Pirates
adding yet another dimension to
the new edition of Pirate Basket-
ball.
The "ECU dunk show" will
come home to Minges Coliseum
on Monday night at 730 fa a
final warm up before the season
opener at Indiana. A packed
house i s expected to be on hand to
see the amazing Pirates and wish
them well with Purple Pride in
anticipation of a fine year.

the support from ECU fans at

E.A. Thomas, Jr Accounting
Scholarship (1975-76, 1976-77),
the Arthur H. Carta National
Accounting Scholarship (1977-
78), and the Scholarship from
Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational
Foundation (1977-78).
Brinkley is also a nominee fa
a Marshall Scholarship (a pro-
gram which provides two years of
study at a university in England),
and a Danforth Fellowship (a
program which provides three
years of study at a university a
college in the United States).
All too often, when the party
ends, the trouble begins.
People who shouldn't be
doing anything more aetivc than
going to sleep are driving a car.
Speeding and weaving their way
to death.
Before any of your friends
drive home from your party, make
sure they aren't drunk.
Don't be fooled because they
drank only beer or wine. Beer and
wine can be just as intoxicating as
mixed drinks,
And don't kid yourself
because they may have had some
black coffee. Black coffee can't
sober them up well enough to drive.
If someone gets too drunk to
drive, drive him yourself. Or call a
cab. Or offer to let him sleep over.
Maybe your friend won't be
feeling so good on the morning after,
but you're going to feel terrific.

SUGclnlLLnW�NTS IMPROVE THEIR
REAMM WRITING. AND PUNTING.
Fellow Beer Persons, life is full of problems.
Fortunately, as your Dean of Beer, I am full of
answers. For example, many problems can be
avoided with good reading skills. Such as
"Danger. Wild Boar Ahead"
Many others can be avoided through good
writing skills. Such as "Dear Mom, Send Cash
However, some problems require more.
Some problems require special attention.
Such as "Good evening, Officer. What can
I do for you?"
That is why, in addition to the fine arts
of reading and writing, I recommend you
master the fine art of punting. Preferably
with either foot. That is also why I am
offering $5.00 off the suggested retail
price of an official, intercollegiate
quality IDilWn football, with the
Schlitz emblem. So you can
practice. (Besides, no one would
be interested if I offered $5.00
off on lip balm.) Class
