University officials meet,
discuss visitation policy
By DOUG WHITE
Assistant News Editor
Univerisity administrators and
city officials met last Friday to
discuss a revision of the dorm
visitation policy which, if propos-
ed to the chancellor and approved,
would take effect early next
semester, according to Carolyn
Fulghum, associate dean of
student affairs.
The meeting was composed of
representatives of the offices of
dean of men, the associate deans
of student affairs, the university
attorney, the campus police,
representatives of the Greenville
Police Department and District
Attorney's office, and Greenville
and university attorneys.
"The meeting was called to
discuss the visitation policy and
see if any changes were needed.
City officals were concerned
because on some days, the oourt
docket was composed mostly of
persons arrested for trespassing
in the dams.
"There is also a question of
whether a person is trespassing if
they are an invited guest in
someone's room after hours. My
major ooncern is unescorted men
in the women's dorms.
"I feel that if a person is in a
student's room with that
student's permission, then
neither person should be arrested
either for trespassing or aiding an
abeting trespassing Fulghum
said.
Fulghum said there is another
legal question of whether a
person can be arrested for
violating a university policy, since
the state of North Carolina does
not necessarily consider an invit-
ed guest in a student's room to be
a trespasser.
"Whatever plan, if any, is
ever adopted will apply equally to
males and females in accordance
with Title IX Fulghum said.
Faculty Senate supports
SGA funded retreats
By STEVE WILSON
Staff Writer
The Faculty Senate adopted a
resolution Tuesday that supports
SGA-funded faculty-student re-
treats, which have been held the
past three years, but have not
been alloted any funding so far
this year by the SGA.
The resolution was supported
at the Faculty Senate by SGA
Treasurer Craig Hales and Legis-
lator Tim Sullivan. The retreats
have been offered on a first-come
first-served basis to both the
departments and the students
wishing to participate, according
to Sullivan.
The major criticism of the
retreats, according to Ed Bean,
Secretary of Academic Affairs, is
that there is "not enough money
left to adequately fund the
Faculty-Student Retreats
Mark Brinson, chairperson of
?h� Camous Facilities Planning
and Development Committee,
spoke concerning the committee's
involvement with the parking
problem that exists on campus fa
ECU faculty.
Among proposals being con-
sidered is the construction of a
$900,000 level above the larger lot
that now exists at the bottom of
College Hill Drive.
This proposed parking level
would inaease faculty parking
decal fees from the current $5 to
an estimated $40. Anaher propo-
sal being considered is the paving
of the lot that now exists behind
Mendenhall Student Center.
The paving of the lot would
allow more efficient use of the
space, in the range of 300 spaces,
acoording to Brinson. The final
proposal being considered by the
committee is to preserve the
existing system, possibly making
some parking regulations
changes such as coding parking
decals to specific lots.
The Senate also adopted a
resolution proposed by the Cre-
dits Committee, which recom-
mends that seven credit hours be
the maximum namal load that a
student may carry during a
Summer School Session.
Bob Nischan, of the Library
Committee reported that due to a
cut-back in funds, less money can
be spent on serial publications
this year. The committee is
proposing miao-filming all of the
library's serial holdings, except
fa current issues. Opponents of
this proposal oontend that miao-
film mataial is difficult to use
is a strain on the eyes. The
oommittee is also proposing allo-
cating funds fa serials by depart-
ment in an attempt to simplify
bookeeping and reduce expense.
The late Dr. Wellington B.
Gray was recognized as having
been a famer Faculty Senate
member, and as having served en
many Faculty Committees.

Congress continues
debate on abortion
ByCELECARNES
Staff Writer
While negotiations continue in
the House and Senate on the issue
of federally financed abortions,
many low inoome women in Pitt
County do not have money fa
abortions.
Federal funds fa abatiais
were cut off August 5, 1977,
according to the Pitt County
Department of Social Services.
"The birth rate will definitely
go up said Martin MacDoweli,
County Health Educata.
"Possible 100 excess births
will occur. Last year 1,216 births
were reported in Pitt County
The effect of these unwanted
births, accading to MacDoweli,
could produce long range social
problems which may result in a
need fa funds in other federal
programs.
Lai year 461 women were
seen fa abatiais counseling by
the county's Family Planning
social worker.
Costs of abortions here range
from $225 to $360 depending on
the doctor and time spent in the
hospital, said McDowell.

Jenkins proposal brings wide citizen support
By SAM ROGERS
Staff Writer
A recent proposal by ECU
Chancellor Leo Jenkins for a
convention center for the
Greenville area has brought wide-
spread support from local citizens
and officials.
At a recent Chamber of
Commerce meeting, Jenkins said
Greenville is the ideal location for
a convention center in eastern
N.C. and the community should
make every effort to oonstruct
such a facility in the near future.
"We are fast approaching the
day when the absence of a con-
vention center will be far out of
character for the reputation held
by Greenville said Jenkins at a
meeting in November.
Greenville has no large meet-
ing center other than Minges
Coliseum on the ECU campus.
Even though several civic
clubs have separate meeting
headquarters, none of the facili-
ties are big enough to accommo-
date a large business convention
or show, according to Ed Walker,
executive vice-president of the
Greenville Chamber of Com-
merce.
"Greenville simply does not
have any adequate meeting facil-
ity for any large scale convention
or business meetings said
Walker.
"The civic dub buildings we
have now do not allow enough
space to comfortably seat a crowd
of more than 500 to 600 people
Walker has organized a Civic
Center Task Force which will
study the feasibility of a large
convention center here.
Reed Hooper, a vioe president
at Wachovia Bank in Greenville,
will head the committee of 10
volunteers.
The Task Force will begin its
study Feb. 1,1978 and will report
its research on the convention
center at the end of next July.
"Their objectives will be to
study the need for a civic center
and to relate the findings to
officials at ECU, the city, and the
Stadium expansion begins
after five years of planning
By LENORA REEVES
Staff Writer
Construction began a week
ago Monday on the $2.6 million
expansion of ECU'S Ficklen Sta-
dium after five years of planning.
Cliff Moore, vice-chancellor of
business affairs, outlined the
proposal for the shape of the new
stadium.
Additional seats will be con-
structed on each end of both the
visiting and home bleachers. The
seating capacity will accommo-
date approximately 46,000 per-
sons, according to Moore.
Moore said the reason for
enlarging the stadium is to not
only bring more revenue into the
university, but to also attract
better quality opponents.
Moore said schools such as
N.C. State and North Carolina
will be more likely to play ECU if
they are guaranteed adequate
seating for their fans plus an
adequate portion of gate receipts.
"Not only will the seating
capacity be increased said
Moore, "but the stadium will
have a three-ttieredi modern
pressbox, serviced by an eleva-
tor
The new pressbox will be
better able to aooommodate visit-
ing journalists than the present
pressbox, said Moore.
As a result, East Carolina
football will have more exposure,
Moore said.
About 1.5 million will be taken
from excess reserve funds and the
remaining money for the project
will come from individual and
group contributions, said Moore.
county said Walker.
"Right now, Greenville is the
hub of eastern N.C, but in 10
years it's going to be the
Charlotte of the east. I, along with
everyone else in the oommunity,
anticipate that type of growth fa
the Greenville area
" W ithout a oonvent ion center,
Greenville is not able to tap the
tourist dollar he said.
"Tourism is the second largest
industry in N.C, and we're not
getting our share. A facility which
will accommodate anywhere from
750 to 1000 people should be
sufficient
Hooper said he also feels
Greenville needs a large conven-
tion center since it is an important
center for eastern N.C.
"Greenville is the logical
place for the center because of its
location explained Hooper.
"But I think there are a lot of
other factors people are going to
have to consider before a conven-
tion center is built, such as
adequate hotel facilities, restau-
rants, and other convention type
service.
"We're going to have to
establish our goals and begin
working from there
Although Hooper has named
only one oommittee member, Ed
Rawl, a local businessman, he
plans to ask Jenkins to serve as an
honorary chairman for the Civic
Center Task Faroe.
"Dr. Jenkins has firmly sup-
ported the idea all along said
Hooper. "He'sbeen instrumental
in the growth of the ECU and the
Greenville oommunity, and I
think he'll be extremely valuable
to the oommittee
Rawl proposed the construc-
tion of a convention center more
than 15 years ago fa all the local
civic organiztions, but could not
gather the needed support from
local civic leaders
Rawl proposed the construc-
tion on a multi-purpose facility
which would seat 1200 people and
would also house the offioes of
eight local civic dubs.

Christmas today
good as yesterday
The News & Observer recently reported that
Christmas sales across North Carolina are already
doing better this year than last year. People are
buying early and buying big. Expensive items, such
as winter coats and wool sweaters, are having to be
reordered for the demand. Needless to say, the
merchants are loving it.
So what does this mean? The first reaction might
be the old, worn-out complaint mat Christmas is too
commercial, that it's nothing but a capitalistic
gimmick to make people buy and to fatten the
merchants' pocketbooks. The true meaning of
Christmas is lost in all the flash and glitter of the
"sale" signs, right? Wrong.
No one can really say what Christmas means. It
means different things to different people. But
somehow, in the middle of all the discrepancies and
commercialism, one aspect of this special holiday has
remained: the spirit of giving.
Perhaps the Christmas tree was bought at a store
instead of being personally chopped down in a forest.
Perhaps it's not even a real tree and the halls are
decked with boughs of plastic hdly. But all of this
doesn't really matter. What counts is that the spirit
of giving still lives at the heart of the Christmas
season, as the sales facts seem to indicate.
At least there is one time out of the year when
people think about giving to others. Many banks
have even started special Christmas savings accounts
to help people prepare for the Christmas spending.
It's one time of the year when people go shopping
and think about what might please someone else,
what might make a friend or relative's eyes light up
when the wrappings and bows are torn off. It's even
an excuse for some people to give to other's when
they would normally feel they oouldn't afford it.
A lot has changed about Christmas over the
years. The modern holiday season barely resembles
those the old folks remember. Strung cranberries and
popcorn have been replaced by aluminum tinsel, and
glass balls hang on the trees where hand-made
ornaments used to hang.
But, nevertheless, the meaning is all the same.
Christmas is a time for happiness and giving, today
as yesterday. And we at FOUNTAINHEAD hope this
Christmas will be the best yet for all our readers.
FOUNTAINHEAD will return Jan. 17, 1978.)

Freedom of speech is for everyone
To FOUNTAINHEAD:
In the November 29
FOUNTAINHEAD, an editorial
appeared concerning abortion
that came out strongly against the
anti-abortion groups.
Our country was founded
upon freedom of speech, includ-
ing the right to express opinions,
among other things. Although I
don't agree with some move-
ments, I do allow them the night
to their opinion. You may dis-
agree with a person's opinion but
how can you say it's wrong?
Opinion is based not on fact but
personal belief. If prcrabortion-
ists have a right to assemble,
speak out, lobby, why shouldn't
their opposition?
Possibly you are worried the
abortion laws will be removed
from the books if these people get
a lot of support. One phrase in the
editorial says "especially in this
day and age and in THIS
country If so many people are
open-minded "in this day and
age why worry about the views
of the minority? We allow the
Communist and Nazi Parties to
survive in this country although
the majority doesn't agree with
them. Do we worry about their
views becoming national opinion9
Our country is great because
we allow the freedom to speak
out, to show how we feel. Because
we don't agree with someone,
have we the right to suppress
their views?

At the last legislative
meeting I was taken to task by
Alonza Newby, (also known as
"Senator Alomozo"), for attend-
ing a meeting of the screenings
and appointments committee.
Alonzo, to his discredit, told
several flagrant lies.
He accused me of "attacking
Campus police missing the point
To FOUNTAINHEAD:
This letter concerns our
so-called ECU Campus Pol ice.
It appears evident to certain
individuals that the police have
over-stepped their bounds and
are no longer serving the interest
of our student body.
Pointfl: At a time when
simple possession of marijuana is
becoming decriminalized ($100
fine), it appears the campus
polioe have increased thier under-
cover "narcotics" activity.
Point 2: Even though we
read in FOUNTAINHEAD that
rapes (reported cases) are de-
creasing and bicycle thefts are on
the decrease, we who are exposed
to this find it to be untrue.
Point 3: The attitiude of the
police is unneccessarily harsh
towards students. Fa example:
you bring a girl back to the dorm
after it is locked. First the polioe
take their time getting there,
which is not only rude, but it
could lead to a bad scene (rape,
theft etc.) Then when the police
let the girls ir, they act rude and
ask questions which have nothing
to do with their duty.
Final point. This is supposedly
a modern campus with upcoming
facilities and programs. We, the
students, must raise our voices
and demand a police force that is
going to serve the students,
Students for the Abolition of
the Pol ice State (S. A. P. S.)

several members" of the commit-
tee. This is totally untrue and ar.y
member of the committee who
was present for that particular
meeting will back me up.
Then he went on to say I
attempted to force the Speaker of
the Legislature to cast a vote in
committee. This too is a lie. All I
did was make the statement that
the speaker, by virtue of his of-
fice, is a member of all legislative
oommittees and therefore has the
right to cast a vote in any
committee meeting.
Mr. Newby did not embarass
me with his idiotic speech a
resolution. He merely proved that
what I have thought about him all
along is true. He can't seem to
get his feet on the ground andf
out of his mouth.
In closing I would like to urge
those in the legislature to be wary
of what Alonzo and his crowd tell
them. Take nothing at face value.

Attorney advisor deals with ECU policy problems
By ROBERT SWAIM
Advertising Manager
The office of attorney advisor
was created in the spring of 1974
to provide an office of equal
opportunity fa the purpose of
administering federal regulations
that were applicable to ECU
through the Education Amend-
ments Act of 1972, acoording to
Dr. David B. Stevens, university
attaney.
ECU was the first state
university in N.C. to have an
attaney advisa and directa of
equal opportunity employment.
Since the position was aeated
UNC-Gand UNC-Chave followed
ECU and aeated similar posi-
tions.
ECU'S attorney advisor,
(university attaney), and directa
of equal oppatunity is Dr. David
B. Stevens.
Dr. Stevens is a native of
Augusta, Geagia. He received a
B.S. from the UNC-CH School of
Business in 1949, a Juris Docta-
ate from UNC law school in 1951,
and an L.L.M(master of law),
from Duke University in 1965.
Dr. Stevens was a professa of
air science at Duke from 1952 to
1956, from 1959 to 1963 he was an
assistant professa of law at the
U.S. Air Face Academy.
A retired Air Face colonel, he
came to ECU in 1970 as an
assistant professa of business.
Accading to Stevens, he is
the compliance officer fa all
federal regulation that apply to
the university.
Stevens said that a large part
of his job is advising the
administration.
"I advise the administration
on topics ranging from distribu-
tion of birth control pillsto minas
to jurisdiction of the campus
police said Stevens.
Stevens said that when
questions arise which involve
university policy, he coadinates
the resolution of the problem with
the N.C. Attorney General's
office.
"If we had a lawsuit against
the university, the attorney
general would represent ECU and
I would assist in the preparation
fa trial, interview witnesses, and
gather evidence said Stevens.
Stevens said that a few years
ago he adv i sed st udent s as wel I as
the administration, but with the
additional workload of equal
opportunity employment pro-
grams, this service is no longer
available.
"I no longer advise students
on legal problems said Stevens.
"It isdifficult to find time to do all
the things that need to be done
James B. Mallay, ECU dean
of men, said Dr. Stevens advises
his offioe very often and that he
values Stevens opinions highly.
" He gives legal interpretation
on any legal question involving
theSGA judiciary said Mallay.
"Fa example, he had to get
in on the act last sorina to
determine the legality of the SGA
elections.
He helped us write the SGA
judicial handbook and he writes
all of our legal opinions said
Mallav.
Aooading to Mallay, Stevens
is the chairman of the Hearings
Board and the Residency
Committfip .
Mallory said Stevens also
waks closely with C.C. Rowe on
the handicapped program.
Carolyn Fulghum, dean of
women, said Dr. Stevens often
advises her offioe on matters
relating to title nine.
"If we are in need of legal
advice we go to him said
Fulghum.

Campus security changes with students
By DAVE THOMPSON
Staff Writer
Studentsand the changes they
have gone through over the years
have helped to dictate policies of
East Carolina's security system,
according to Joe Calder, Chief of
Campus Police.
Calder said that both the
students of ECU and the security
system have changed drastically
since the Korean War.
Up to that point, the ECU
security system had been nothing
but a group of night-watchmen
looking out for students and staff
on campus, according to Calder.
Today, the ECU security staff
is a full-fledged police force, with
22 officers and a new high-band
communications system.
It was a very different system
prior to Calder's arrival in 1970.
After the Korean War, mili-
tary veterans returned home with
the chance to obtain a college
education.
According to Calder, the
veteran attending school at ECU
started questioning the authority
of persons such as the deans. The
system was then starting to be
tested, he said.
The system started being
tested a little more when the
students of the late 1960's were at
ECU, Calder said. Mae and more
"dropouts" and "fallouts" start-
ed frequenting the university
grounds protesting, stealing, and
dealing drugs, he said.
The 1960's were also a time
when oourts were challenging the
power of deans to expel students,
he said.
This was the period, according
to Calder, that student power was
at a height and university power
at a low because the "night
watchman system could no
longer defend against the stu-
In1970, Dr. Leo Jenkins hired
Calder to head the security
system.
Calder said that in 1970, ECU
had 4 a 5 good officers out of 13.
He said he realized that sinoe the
power of deans was at an all time
low, the campus security would
have to take up the slack.
Calder then started shaping
the security system into a polioe
force, fully equipped with loaded
guns and trained with 160 hours
of classroom instruction.
Calder was asked whether he
thought that a fully equipped
polioe system was necessary on
campus.
"What do you want?" he
replied. "A night watchman or a
polioe foroe? A night watchman
isn't going to protect you when
you're being raped
Calder said that since he's
been here his officers have only
had to fire their weapons on
campus four a five times, two of
which were uncalled fa.
This year has been a very
good year so far, he said, with no
maja problems on campus.
Calder attributes this to the
changing student.
During the past three a four
years, he said, the student has
changed and now wants a good
education and a good job.
"They seem to be uncon-
cerned with the activities of the
past he said.

By CAROL CHASE
Staff Writer
The N.C. Student Legisla-
ture's Interim-Council ,endorsed
the Panama Canal Treaty at its
meeting in late November at
Western Carolina University.
More than 125 students from
about 18 universities and colleges
attended.
The NCSL is a model State
Legislature in which students
write meaningful and effective
legislation. Over 40 per oent of
NCSL legislation has eventually
become state law.
The Panama Canal Treat v was
major topic at the Interim-Coun-
cil according to Frark Saubers,
NCSL governor.
The Associated Press covered
the meeting because of its
interest in the NCSL's stand on
the Panama Canal issue.
Saubers established, by
executive order, a rules commit-
tee which will study, .research,
and recommend additional by-
laws to the Interim-Council.
In other business, three
schools rejoined the NCSL at the
November meeting. They were
Appalachian State University,
Meredith College, and UNC-
Wilmington.
The NCSL also made prepara-
tions for the NCSL session in
Raleigh next year.

Premiums for young men to drop

In an effat to redistribute the
high insurance premiums of male

The system was discrimina-

Computing center work load increases steadily
By JOYCE EVANS
Staff Writer
The ECU Computing Center's
work load has steadily increased
during the past several years,
according to Richard Lennon,
director of the center.
This inaease in work and the
lack of funds to inaease the
center's staff are problems the
center now faces, according to
center managers.
Requests to open the center
for longer hours and on weekends
could not be responded to,
according to Lennon.
"For third shift and Satur-
days, we need additional compu-
ter operatas said Little.
"The demand for computer
services are outstripping our
ability to provide these services
said Lennon.
In addition to these problems,
the center has undergone two
major conversions�a,machine
conversion and the semester
system conversion, according to
William Little, operations mana-
ger.
"Conversions have been a
maja problem, especially the
semester system conversion
said Little.
"Semester system conversion
involved rewriting every program
we've got he said.
"No one took the time to ask
computer personnel what actually
was involved in setting up the
semester system conversion
said Dr. James Joyce of the
physics dept.
The machine conversion invol-
ved rewriting programs too,
according to Danny Griffen, pro-
gramming manager for the cen-
ter.
All of the Registrar's office
programs were in other lan-
guages, and the programmers
had to write them in Cobol, he
said.
Griffen said they had a limited
programming staff and they were
under tremendous time con-
straints.
had to be transferred to tapes and
discs, he said.
The machine conversion com-
bined the academic and adminis-
trative user under one system
instead of the dual system that
existed. This had a definite effect
on the register's off ice, according
to Registrar Gilbert Moore.
"Before the conversion, we

Moore.

Biologist researches
heart disease
ByRICKIGLIARMIS
Staff Writer
Dr. James E. Akers, a miao-
biologist with the ECU School of
Medicine, is currently research-
ing heart disease and may publish
the results of his research next
semester.
Akers is using a $5,000
research grant from the N.C.
Heart Association for his studies
on heart disease.
Akers, a 1976 graduate of the
University of Kansas School of
Medicine, said he is concentra-
ting his research on myocarditis,
an infection of the muscle tissue
of the heart.
Myocarditis is caused by the
Coxsackie B viruses, according to
Akers.
These viruses are thought to
have killed 35 to 40 per cent of
those who have died of heart
prooiems over the past several
years, said Akers.
Akers plans to study the
infectious process of Coxsackie
viruses by working with cultured
heart cells. Akers said he is
studying the effect of certain
anti-viral drugs on the cultured
cells.
The Coxsackie viruses are
closely related to polio virus and
produce symptoms similar to
influenza, according to Akers.
The viruses have also caused
encephalitis, panaeatitis, liver
infections, and meningitis.
Currently, no effective
therapy is available for the cure of
the viruses, and, as of now, no
study has been made on both
myocarditis and the Coxsackie
viruses, according to Akers.
"I surveyed the literature that
was available and it was evident
and there was wak that needed
to be done said Akers
With the operation under the
control of the registrar's office,
they received priaity in work
scheduling, except fa payroll.
Moae said he doubts that
anyone would argue about payroll
getting priaity.
Under the new system, natur-
ally the registrar could not control
the operations and the job
priaity, he said.
"Their (the computer cen-
ter's) scope became much broad-
er and we had to fit in among
many users said Moae.
During registration, Moore
said their data processing section
would wak all night, if neces-
sary.
The computer center no long-
er had a third shift and that
caused problems fa the regis-
trar's office, according to Moae.
He said advance arrange-
ments would be necessary to get
center personnel to wak laiger
hours. And that there are times
when their office does na know
the job will run into anaher shift
A oanputer operata would
start a job and could na complete
the job befae his shift was over,
the job would possibly have to be
run sometime during the day,
Moae said. With the third shift,
the job could be continued that
night. This would free the com-
puter fa other jobs, he said.
The registrar'soffice isa large
user with over 200 applications,
said Little.
This offioe processes all statis-
tical data relating to students-
grades, quality point averages,
applications fa graduatiai and
numerous aher jobs.
"All statistical information
relating to the student come from

ually updated, no one else can
have access to this file he said.

The disfiguring disease rick-

than 50 years ago with the dis-
covery that vitamin D brought
about striking cures. Under
this regimen a child's distorted
and softened bones would
strengthen and straighten.
But gradually doctors no-
ticed that while the vast ma-
jority of children with rickets
were cured by this treatment,
others weren't. Not until 1937
was it found that some patients
needed at least 100 times the
normal dosage of vitamin D.
Then it was clear this type of
rickets was due not to a de-
ficient diet, but to some other
problem.
Researchers learned that
these children had vitamin D-
resistant rickets, an inherited
disorder, traced to a defective
gene on the X chromosome.
Patients with this birth de-
fect of body chemistry do not

weight loss. Overdosage can
cause kidney damage and even-
tually death Denise's calcium

also monitor her growth. So
far, it is normal.
A puzzling inheritance
When doctors first investi-
gated vitamin D-resistant rick-
ets, it w. ?n't clear how it was
inherited. An examination of
the patient's family tree often
failed to reveal any ancestors
with rickets. Not until doctors
began using blood phosphates
as an indicator did a clear in-
heritance pattern emerge.
Family studies indicate that
vitamin D-resistant rickets is
caused by an abnormal gene
on the X chromosome. Accord-
ing to the laws of hereditv if
a man has the disorder all of
his daughters will also lie af-
fe. ted. but none of his sons. If
a woman has the disorder, all
of her children hoys or girls
have a 50-50 chance of receiv-
ing the faulty gene.
Problems and outlook
Most children with vitamin
D-resistant rickets never grow
to normal height for several
reasons Often diagnosis and
treatment is started after de-
formities and growth retarda-
tion have become serious,
especially for children with
no clear family history of the
disorder
Also, it is very difficult to
maintain medication in the
growing years. If vitamin D
overdose occurs, treatment
may have to stop and not be
reinstated until active rickets
reappear so that the benefits
of therapy are lost. In severe
cases, patients show little
benefit from doses of vitamin
D high enough to risk kidney

ing to pinpoint the flaw in

Keith Jarrett's latest 'a sine qua non for collectors'
"Byablue" shows strong Eastern influence
By JEFF ROLLINS
Assistant Trends Editor
In his latest album, Byablue,
the prolific jazz composer Keith
Jarrett has taken several strides
forward in the direction hisearlier
albums were heading. The Asian
influence is particularly strong on
Byablue, as it was on his
Misteries album. Jarrett is a
moderate jazz avant-gardist, as
such, his music is some of the
most stylistically modern in jazz
that is being written today, and
for this he is interesting alone.
But it is less for his innovations
than fa the distinctive,personal-
ity of his music that we, listen fa
and look faward to .the next
Jarrett album. His music bears
his indelible signature in each
phrase, much as T,helonius
Monk's music is unmistakably
his own.
The song, 'Byablue is a pro-
gress piece fa piano, tena sax,
bass and drums that is made up of
the iteration of a basic theme with
only slight musical variations
thrown in fa interest and di-
versiai. Unfortunately it isaplain
and underwritten piece This is
the one song oi the album where
Jarrett allows himself to get
"jazzy" in the lay sense of the
wad, meaning that it has a beat
you can stamp your feet too, at
least parts of it do. But the "bop"
moments of "Byablue" are far
between and while we aren't
snapping our fingers we are
being treated to some moderately
entertaining sax wak by Dewey
Redman. The soig has mae
potential than is realized here,
one senses, especially since this
was chosen as the title cut, and it
is surprising that Jarrett didn't
try to make it mae substantial by
writing in solos anda additional
melodic motives.
"Kenya' is a beautiful East-
ern anthem written fa soprano

bass and percussion. It is all too

didn't see fit to lengthen this one
of the truly aiginal and startling
pieces on the album. The phras-
ing is such that you've probably
never heard befae unless you've
been trekking through Pakistan

then.
The last song on the.first side,
"Rainbow" is the brightest, most
up-beat song on the album. Its
melodic sheen is one that lovas

thrown in by the ubiquitiously
recorded bass-master, Paul
Motian. This is the song that you
would hear at the beginning of a
particularly good party.
"Trieste as its name im-
plies, is a dreamy legato piece.
The song embodies the type of
modern melancholia one might
feel while he is drinking a bottle
of Chateau Neuf under a Jackson
Pollock. In other words, in this
song Jarrett does weakly what
Bartok did with genious seventy
years ago. But, then, we could
say that about a lot of people.
"Fantasm" is the shortest
song on the whole album. It is
composed of one musical thought
(melody really would be too old
fashioned a term) written for
tenor sax and piano with bass
punctuation. Even though the
piece is sparsely written and very
short (less than two minutes) it is
extremely musically effective.
"Yahllah" with its Moham-
medan name, combines a pre-
dominant Asian influence with
some of Jarrett's most successful
piano wak. Increasingly a stylis-
tic trademark of Jarrett's, the

least to Western ears) is excell-
ently utilized fa the most possi-
ble musical potential. Jarrett
contrasts the cobra-ooming-out-
of-the-basket Asian parts of
Yahllah' with a very pretty piano
interlude about halfway through
the song and this oontrast we
sense is somehow aesthetically
very necessary.
The album ends with a

Aja'accessible for masses, cerebral enough for progressives 1977 F��"TAINHEAD p-r15
Steely Dan repeats successful formula
By DOUG WHITE
Assistant News Editor
Steely Dan, over the past five
years, developed a unique blend
of intelligent, often cryptic lyrics
with freshly inventive pop tunes.
On Aja, their sixth album, they
stray not an inch from their
successful formula.
This album backs off from the
latin and reggae influences of
their last album, The Royal Scam,
in favor of a more jazz oriented
sound. The major difference in
Steely Dans music from most
pop recorded today is in the
band's musical foundation:
whereas most pop and rock are
direct descendants of the blues,
Steely Dan traces its roots to
swing and bebop. The result is a
pleasant alternative to basic Top
40 puffery.
Steely Dan, or rather Walter
Becker (guitarist and bassist) and
Donald Fagen (keyboards), view
society in odd, usually cynical
terms. Their calculated precision
is antithetical to many people's
conception of rock as a strong
musical expression of strong
emotion, specifically, love, and
anger. Becker and Fagen choose
instead to observe the gangs on
from a dark corner, detached and
methodical, rather than take an
active part and risk injury.
With the exception of "Home
at Last" and "I Got the News
every song on this album is single
material. Already, the title track
and "Peg" are receiving quite a
bit of airplay.
Side one opens with "Black
Cow a bitter goodbye to a dead
love affair telling her in so many
words that it's over now so get
lost. Like most of the other songs
on the album, this one is upbeat
with original chord changes and
imaginative melodic hooks, com-
plimented by the polished perfec-
tion of top session musicians.
The dreamy title track is a
radical departure from anything
Becker and Fagen have done in
the past. Clocking in at just under
eight minutes, this is the longest
song they have ever recorded.
The piece moves through distinct
stages, for lack of a better word,
movements, finally climaxing in a
furious competitior between
Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), and
Steve Gadd (drums). The lyrics
are typically wierd, using such
phrases as "double helix in the
sky tonightthrow out the hard-
wareLet's do it right lines
apparently about sexual activi-
ties. Or biology lab.
"Deaoon Blues" oonoerns its-
elf with the label society gives
winners and losers. The song is
undistinguished either by lyrics
or music, simply textbook Dan.

ing film actress. One of the best
tunes on the album, this song is
blessed with the backing vocals of
former Dan Member and current
Doobie Brothers Michael
McDonald, adding an upper
register bite to the background
chorus.
A new interpretation of
Homer's "Odyssey" is supposed-
ly offered in "Homeat Last but
doesn't quite oome off. The song
is however, a change of pace from
the rest of the album, this piece
being a bluesy piano shuffle.
The remaining two tracks, "I
Got the News" and "Josie" are
more typical of Steely Dan during
tor steely Dan.
the time Pretzel Logic was
recorded. The former resembles
"Parker's Band while later is
most like "Through with Buzz
"I Got the News" is a
dispassionate description of a
love-making session, at times
needlessly vulgar. "Josie" deals
with a similar theme, threaten-
ing, or perhaps promising Josie a
friendly gang-bang when she gets
home. "Josie" iseasilythe better
of the two, even though its'
strange guitar line is out of place

This is just one example of
how television oensors what is not
permissible over the airways.
It could be that T.V. is
starving for humor and takes
these cheap shots just to get a
quick laugh. Or maybe this
new-found abbreviated censor-
ship is simply reflecting the
wishes that we, society, want
more down-to-earth language on
television. But perhaps the real
reason for the introduction of
these "beep" words into sound
media is fa audience participa-
tion. The listeners can substitute

fits the blank left by the onissive
"beep" wad.
What you replace the beep
wad with depends ai who you
are and how your mind waks. If
you have a perverted mind, you
will undoubtedly think of some-
thing perverted. If your mind
revolved around sex, there are
numerous four-letter wads to
pick from. And if you're a radical,
a whole underground of scheming
diction awaits your call. To each

You can hear "beep" wads
ai any given comedy show, many
television variety shows, and
frequently in radio commercials.
The "almost" live Gong Show
has at least half-a-dozen visual
beeps in its 30 minutes, while if
you watch Maude you can expect
no less than one "beep" per
show. Late night T.V especially
Johnny Carson, is infamous fa its
deleted and beeped wads.
"Beep" wads really aren't
that bad. They keep kids fron
hearing things they (probably)
shouldn't hear, and the wads do
cause us to think a little. My only
complaint is the difficulty in
finding a wad to take the place of
the "beep" wad.
The most reosnt beep wad
I had trouble with was in an
advertisement about Kentucky
Fried Chicken, and it went like
thisThat's mighty good-beep-

of wads that will fit, but to

Team handball meet
The Team Handball champions from East Carolina and
Appalachian State University met last Thursday and Friday in
Memorial Gym and the teams each came away with one win.
Representing East Carolina were the Belk Embalmers and
additional players from the other three teams in the all-campus Team
Handball tournament. ECU'S team was led by Jim Chastain, who
played during the regular season for the Embalmers, and alternates
Dennis Ballamy, of the Time Outs, and Bob Peak of the Ayoock Giants.
In the first game played on Thursday night, Chastain scored 10
points, including the winning goal, astne ECU champs beat ASU 31-30
at the buzzer. Peak scored six in the game and Bellamy tallied five
points. In Friday afternoon's game Appalachian gained a measure of
revenge with a 37-33 win over East Carolina. Chastain led the ECU
representatives with 11 points and Brad Middleton scored six points.
Bellamy scored four times and Peak and Daryll Smith of the Tekes
scored three points in the losing cause
Appalachian had two excellent Handball players in Bill Revelleand
Randy McCaslin. Both scored 20 points over the two-day series.
Revelle had been invited to try out for the 1976 Olympic Handball
team, but did not accept the invitation. Chastain's performance
matched that of the Appalachian stars, as he finished the two-game
series with 21 points-the series high.
The Belk Embalmers won the intramural team title earlier in the
week when they downed the Ayoock Giants 22-17. Chastain had eight
pants in the win and Middleton added six, but the high scorer fa the
game was Peak. He soared 13 points and finished as the high scorer in
the all-campus playoffs with 21 points.
The Giants reached the finals with a 15-12 win over Phi Kappa Tau
and the EmbaJmers reached the finals with a 23-18 win over the Tekes.
Roy Turner and Chuck Freedman of Kappa Sigma won the
Intramural Sports Trivia contest fa the second year in a row as they
downed Bill Greene and Larry Schick in the finals.
Turner and Freedman won last year with a more oomplete area ot
questioning, but this year's trivia quest ions covered only major league
baseball. The first place trophies were presented by Hal Baird, a major
league baseball player who goes to school here in the offseason. Baird
was a pitcher on the ECU team.
Among the contestants Freedman and Turner had to overoome was
the team of Dr. Jimmy Grimsley, a famer maja league umpire, and
Gary Overton, a famer ECU baseball player.
The intramural two-on-two basketball title was decided last week as
Darius Harris and Sheila Bowe defeated Al McCrimmon and Gwen
Scott in a best-of-three contest. The title game had been postponed
from earlier in the year because of an injury to McCrimmons' hand.
Men'sand women's intramural basketball began Tuesday with 125
men's teams registered and only 26 women's teams registered in the
competitive student leagues. Two other leagues, the faculty-staff
league and the non-competitive student league, will start after break.
Registration runs from Jan. 9-12 on the faculty-staff league. Men'sand
women's bowling registration will also begin on the ninth of January
and end onJ,an. 12.
New raoquetball court reservation policif have been established.
Beginning Jan. 9, reservation fa Court O have to be made in the
Minges equipment room from 8-12 each maning and registration fa
court two must be made in Memaial's equipment room fron 8-12.

Old story aided Pirate victory
Wherever you are, Joe San-
ders, Ray Scharf would like to
thank you.
Scharf is the head swimming
coach at East Carolina University.
In 1968, Joe Sanders was a staff
writer for the Daily Tar Heel, a
daily newspiiper in Chapel Hill.
You see, the way Ray Scharf has
it figured, Sanders had as much
to do with the Pirates 61-52 win
over the University of North
Carolina swim team as anyone
else.
If all this seems a little
strange, let us go back to the year
1968 for a moment. That was Ray
Scharf s first year as head coach
at ECU. It was also the year that
East Carolina College was host to
the AAU National Champion-
ships. In honor of the occasion,
Mmges Natatorium was built. At
the time, and to the present, the
facility ranks as one of the finest
in the United States.
However, Mr. Sanders did not
see it that way. In an article that
he wrote for the DTM, Sanders
made specific reference as to his
opinion of the East Carolina
operation.
it seems that a few years
ago, someone at East Carolina
convinced the college that what
an aspiring regional university

STUFF FOR CHRISTMAS!
needed was an expensive swim-
ming pool and a national champ-
ionship. So they built an expen-
sive pool, and hosted a national
championship and when it was
over, all the visiting swimmers
and reporters went home.
"Now there the pool sits-
presumably full of water. As far
as anyone has heard, the new
pool has boosted neither the
athletic nor academic standing of
ECU, but if we detect an
improvement, we'll let you
know
Those words were written ten
years ago. But from that day,
until Tuesday night, when North
Carolina visited Minges Coli-
seum, Ray Scharf has had one
burning disireto beat the Uni-
versity of North Carolina.
"Now you understand why it
means so much that we beat
them Scharf reflected. "That
story has been eating at me ever
since 1968. That was an insult to
our program, to the school, and to
the community in general. All
those years of pent-up frustration
I can now let out, because we
finally did it, we beat them
(61-52, if you hadn't heard.)
"I have put the article on our
bulletin board every year before
the Carolina meet said Scharf.
I wanted our guys to realize why
it was so important for us to beat
them. I wanted them psyched
And psyched they were in
1977. The Pirates set six new
varsity records, four new pool
records, and six meet records as
well. In addition, the Pirates
qualified John McCauley in two
events, the 50 and 100 freestyle,
for the NCAA championships and
also qualified the 400 freestyle
relay team of McCauley, Billy
Thorne, John Tudor and Bill
Fehling fa the nationals.
"That was a great, great win
for us & .arf said. "The guys
swam out of their heads. I'm
proud of every one of them. This
has to be the greatest.

Pirate wrestlers face tough opposition
By SAM ROGERS
Staff Writer
The East Carolina wrestling
team journeys northward to
Bethlehem, Pa. this weekend to
face nationally ranked Oregon
State and Lehigh along with East
Stroudsburg State in a quad
meet.
Bill Hill's youthful Pirate
grapplers have been impressive
in their first two tournament
appearanoBS this season, but will
be heavy underdogs against
Oregon State and Lehigh.
"We're going up there with
the attitude we can win against
all three teams says Hill.
"However, it will be extremely
tough to beat a national caliber
team like Lehigh at home. We've
got everybody healthy so we
should be ready to give it
everything
The Amateur Wrestling News
latest ooliegiate rankings have
Oregon State in fourth place while
the Engineers of Lehigh are
ranked eighth.
Oregon State finished fifth in
the NCAA Championships last
year and have four returning
national plaoe winners. Lehigh
took seventh in the nationals and
returned two All-Americans,
Although the Pirates boast of
no All-Americans, there will be
several interesting matchups
among the teams.
ECU'S Bob Passino, a fresh-
man will go against Oregon
State's Pat Plourd in the 118
weight class. Passino has a 7-3
record this season with a second
place finish in the Carolina
Invitational.
Plourd took sixth in the
nationals last year and will be
favored to win it a'l at 118 this
year.
Both Oregon State and Lehigh
have national place winners at
177 and 190. Oregon State
sophomore Marty Ryan took sixth
in the nation last year as a
freshman at 177 and will face
ECU'S Jay Dever or Butch Revils.
Dever or Revils will also face
Lehigh's Mark Lieberman who
was the runner-up in the nation
last year at 177. Dever is 7-1 this
season and defeated Revils in the
finals of the Carolina Invitational
two weeks ago.
Revils, a freshman from
Norfolk, Va boasts a 6-1 record
and captured the 177 pound
championship in the Monarch
Open earlier in the season.
At 190, Oregon State will use
sophomore Howard Harris, who
took sixth in the nationals while
Lehigh has Mike Brown who
placed fifth in the NCAA Champ-
ionships. Greenville native

three years at the Arkanaas helm.
In SWC play, his Porkers are
36-10, including last season's
16-0 mark en route to the league
title.
As a major college head
coach, the Brooklyn native

in five years at Creighton before
assuming the Razorback reins.

extended elbow injury. The
McLean, Va. native is 5-1 this
season and placed third in the
Monarch Open.

ed, left Tulsa Central to build a
program at Southern Idaho, a
junior college that had never had
a basketball team. In three years
under Sutton, Southern Idaho was
83-14.
Sutton is the first Southwest
Conference coach to appear In the
Pizza Hut Basketball Classic,
whose series is knotted at 3-3.
Voting for participants in the 1978
event has just begun at the

sities. The 1978 East coach will be
Dave Gavitt of Providence
College.
Rugby
I guess first you'll say-
WHAT? Now say- WHEN HOW
& WHERE. Let's don't let ECU
be the last to incorporate
women's rugby in N.C. There are
now two women's rugby dubs in
N.C, one in Wilmington and one
at N.C. State. Did you know that
even now it is a part of High
School curriculum in California?
Get involved this year, in a
sport of the future. One that
combines several skills and is one
of the few women's team sports.
