Roaches, ants invade formtones
Staff Writer
A combined effort by dorm
students, housekeeping, and
maintenance could help to elim-
inate the problem of ants and
cockroaches in ECU dormitories.
"We can't do it all alone
said Bill Whichard, director of
Housekeeping at ECU.
"It takes everybody working
together Whichard said. "If
students would police up and
keep their rooms clean, it would
enable us to do a better job
"We can't completely get rid
of the roaches, but we can control
it said Whichard.
According to Whichard, there
are several things that attract the
"Dirty dishes, crumbs and
?cod scraps on the floor, and
empty drink containers sitting
around will attract them
Whichard said.
Trash cans which are dirty or
have food scraps in them can also
attract roaches and ants said
Whichard. "There are trash cans
in the bathrooms of each dorm
that are supposed to be used by
the dorm students for food
"Even cheap books, when
damp, can attract roaches be-
cause of the glue in the binding
commented Whichard.
"Ants are also a problem
Whichard said. "Anything sweet
will attract them. Keeping foods,
especially sugar, in airtight con-
tainers would be helpful
Dan K. Wcoten, director of
Men's Housing, said that the pest
control problem became worse
when cooking was permitted in
the dormitories around 1970.
"A lot of the complaints are
about roaches said Wcoten.
Wcoten said that maintenance
sprays about every two weeks.
"Students should sign the
pest control sheet with their name
and room number when they want
their room to be sprayed. The
sheet is usually posted on a
bulletin board in every dam
said Wooten.
Wcoten said that spraying is
not overly effective when the
students are in the dorms.
"For a thaough job we need
to do every roan in every dam.
We can't do evay aack a crevice
while the student is living in the
roan said Wcoten.
"The best results are in the
summer when we can get into
every corner while the students
are gone Wcoten added.
Raid or Black Flag could
be just as effective.

Students visit Costa Rica
Assistant News Edita
Fran July 26 to Oct. 26, 17
students from ECU attended the
Universidad Nacional at Heredia,
Costa Rica.
Guillermo Saenz, a teacher
from the Universidad Nacional,
originally planned and later coa-
dinated the trip with Dr. and Mrs.
Robert E. Cramer. The exchange
program was originated in 1973
by Saenz and Cramer.
Dr. Cramer, famer chairman
of the geography department
here fa 13 years, organized the
group of 17 students and arrang-
ed fa their accanrnodatiais in
Later, both he and his wife
supervised the activities of the
group thae.
Each of the students rented
rooms in the homes of various
citizens of Haedia, a city north of
San Jose, fa 85 dollars a month.
That cost included meals and
laundry service.
Participants in the groups
visited several places in Costa
Rica, including Cartago, the
ralamanca Range, Quepos, San
Jose, dam sites, banana planta-
tions, tobacco factories, and even
a few volcanoes.
The students who went were;
Dan Dolan, Darlene Strange,
Chuck Hill, Julie Sazama, Henry
Peddle, Daothy Easley, Brad
Lingg, Linda Krause, Ann
Massengill, Buddy Caddell, Kelly
Fugate, Gus Wilson, Martha
Fisher, Troy Mcore, Cathy Deal,
Mark Daily, and Diana Reese.
Costa Rica is a relatively small
country of 19,575 square miles,
located in Central America,
nathwest of Panama.
With a population of
1,875,000, Costa Rica has mana-
ged to maintain most of its
natural beauty.
"It's virtually unspoiled; the
natural beauty of Costa Rica still

Snack bar needs $
The snack bar renovation in the old student union
has been halted due to a lack of funds, according to
Curtis May, supply store assistant manager. May
said in Thursday's FOUNTAINHEAD that more
money will probably be needed in order to complete
the renovation.
Last summer, the student supply store was
renovated with a $400,000 loan, and renovation on
the snack bar began with the remainder of that loan.
The loan was paid back with funds normally
earmarked fa academic scholarships.
May did not say where the money which will
probably be needed will come from, but it should be
no surprise if some academic program here feels a
financial cutback in order to pay for the completion of
the new snack bar.
When an institution of higher learning discon-
tinues academic scholarships to pay for the
renovation of its student bookstore, a certain priority
is being misplaced. Many students could not attend
college if they were not awarded these scholarships.
Concern for the lack of academic scholarships here at
ECU is missing, especially from the administration.
According to May, the bookstore area had to be
enlarged in order to house the large quantities of
books which needed to be on display, rather than in
the storage room-especially at the beginning of each
semester. This reason is understandable.
However, when the money is taken from such a
needed area, perhaps another method of financing
should have been considered before making such a
drastic move.
Unfortunately, the damage has been done.
According to Robert M. Boudreaux, financial aid
officer, the academic scholarships will not be
reinstated. He said it is hoped that the National Merit
scholarships will be upgraded, and more students
will apply fa this scholarship.
Fa the snack bar to be finished soon would be
nice, but fa any area on campus dealing specifically
with academic funds to experience any financial
cutback would be disheartening to those who are
enrolled here fa academic purposes. Academics is
supposed to be the main concern of a university.
Money financing the snack bar renovation should
in no way affect any funds set aside fa academic
purposes. When a university ceases to show concern
fa the academic program, then the purpose a
university is supposed to project is a lost cause.
Mideast talks hah
When Egyptian President Anwar Sadat made his
dramatic visit to Jerusalem in November, it seemed
to many people in the Middle East and to the rest of
the wald that peace was lurking just around the
However, President Sadat recalled the Egyptian
delegation from the political negotiations in Jerusalem
last week, and Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister
Menahem Begin called off the trip of a delegation to
attend military talks in Cairo.
The two issues causing the friction between the
two nations are Israeli withdrawal from occupied
lands and the Palestinian issue.
The peace talks are tempaarily off, but U.S.
Seaetary of State Cyrus R. Vanoe said when he
returned to Washington Sunday that he expects the
talks between the two nations to resume in
approximately one week.
Hopefully, the two nations will resume their
peace talks soon and oontinue to try to resolve the
problems which have plagued the Middle East fa so

Abortion should be n- option
for all women(and their men).
Pregnancy can not be a
sword of Damocles held by the
wealthy over the head (or should I
say the uterus) of poor women.
Abortion is medically safe.
Because of a very low incid-
ence of complications, (in legal
abortions, which are, of course,
what we wish to see encouraged)
hospital records show the pro-
cedure is statistically safer than
pregnancy-to-term andor birth.
Now to your editorial.
Of each tax dollar received by
the government the largest part is
returned to the taxpayer in the
form of services, ideally to benefit
the quality and availablility of
resources to all citizens.
However, the next largest
part of the tax dollar goes to
"defense spending.
Through the Wood-ooJored
glasses of the military we are
euphemistically assured our tax
money is promoting national
security. But it really means we
are promoting the development
and deployment of war "toys"
with their ever-present spectre of
destruction of human life on vast
and impersonal scales.

life in contemporary society.
Now - anybody for a long-
range cost analysis? I do not
pretend to be versed in such
economics, but one FACT stands
"It costs$40,000-plus to raise
a child from birth to 18 and this
figure is increasing yearly
Changing Times magazine)
In a poor family, where is all
this money going to come from?
Of course, there is always the
idea that poor families should be
kept poor by forcing them to have
children. The middle-class must
protect its position after all?
Well, the answer is that
money is going to come from you
and I, the taxpayer, and will be
used to support prison facilities,
rehabilitation centers, welfare,
medical expensesetc.
It will be A LOT of money.
There are literally a million
alternatives which the child of an
unplanned birth might command
from a family who can give
nothing. Thus, if that child can
not be responsible for himher
self, all society becomes respon-
sible for that child's existence

short for Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate and if you
qualify it can pay you as much as $611 a month for the
remainder of your senior year. Then after 16 W eeks of
officer Candidate School, you will receive an addtional year
of advanced technical education, education that would cost
thousands in a civilian school, but in the Navy we pay you.
And at the end of the year of training, you'll receive a $3,000

Mario Gaetano wins Young Artist award
Staff Writer
People who don't like classical
music might have some trouble
sitting through some of the
pieces performed at the Second
Annual ECU Young Artists Com-
petition Finals last Saturday in
the Mendenhall Theatre.
Sponsored by Mendenhall
Student Center and the School of
Music Student Forum, each of the
six finalists performed a 15
minute selection either solo or
accompanied by piano. A grand
prize of $200 was awarded to the
overall winner, and three prizes
of $50 were awarded to the best in
the catagories of Instrumental,
Vocal, and Piano.
Mike Price performed a jazzy
tune on his alto saxophone to
open the competition. Price was
accompanied by George Stone
playing piano. It seems that
saxophone perfamances are al-
ways full of rapid fire runs and
weak on transition. This tends to
make some members of the
audience think about a long lost
second cousin or yesterday's
classes. Of course this may be
exactly what the composer in-
tends with his work, and if that is
so this piece was a big hit. It was
difficult to hear the subtitles of
the sax that probably should have
been brought out more in a
competition of this sort. Saxo-
phones are very versatile instru-
ments which can produce fab-
ulous jazz runs and overtones that
can really capture an audience.
Although Price failed to fully
explore his instrument he did
manage to show that he is strong
on talent and was deserving, if
not of his prize fa instrumental
performance, then graduation.
Piano music can hold the
interest of even the most un-
initiated classical music listener if
well perfamed. And although
Alisa Wetherington's perfam-
ance seemed to start with a
warm-up exercise to loosen her
fingers it was lively enough so
that you could stop squirming in
your chair to listen. If a concert
pianist it would be hard to fagive
slippery fingers during a perfam-
ance, but in Wetherington it can
be overlooked because of the
superb taste she displayed in
combining movements by Bach

and Choplin. Although she won
no prizes, she succeeded in
building ner i5 minute portion of
the competition into an emotion
packed mini-concert and high-
light of the afternoon.
To some people voice music as
it was displayed in this competi-
tion is something to be avoided,
like bad breath. But someone had
to win the $50 fa a vocal
perfamance, so Belinda Bryant
did her best. To be fair all of us
can admit she had excelInt vocal
control and sang fluent Italian.
Some singers seem to specialize
in paining the ear, but even the
most un-initiated listener could
have sat through Bryants per-
famance, but not enjoyed it
Intermission and Victaia
Lannotta brought us more Bach
and some Copeland perfamed on
flute accompanied by Patricia
Mann on the grand piano. Like
piano, flute has a good chance of
sounding alright and holding the
interest of the audience if it is
played well. Lannotta did a fine
job hitting only a few shrill a
unsure notes and ended her
perfamance with a bit of frivolity
that oould only be oomplimented
if you had had the patience to stay
and hear it.
To see Sheila Marshburn
hunched over a piano, hands just
a lur, absabed in her absabing
Liszt piece, one oould make an
accurate guess from the first
notes that she would win a prize.
By the end of the her 15 minutes
she had built her piece to a
feverish pitch, and even the
slumbering members of the aud-
ience awoke to see her. There
were few thoughts of summer
vacations a class assignments
during her perfamance. She
MARIO QAETANO WINNER of ttte Second Annual ECU Young Artists Competition
might have even been glad to
have seen her perfamance.
Last, and also grand prize
winner, was Mario Gaetano and
his perfamance with two sticks in
each hand hitting a marimba. It
wasn't at all like a rock concert
marimba when a percussionist
does everything but tap dance on
his instrument. Gaetano's per-
famance was strong, showed his
talent well, but like Price he failed
to really show off his instrument
and its capabilities. During his
perfamance the image of that
lost second cousin creeps into
your mind. A marimba is such a
marvelous instrument, and
Gaetano has such an ability fa
perfaming with it, it is a shame
he couldn't have picked a better
So who were the people who
judged the betters from the

From UNC Greensboro, a piano
professa, Dr. Geage Kiapes.
From Chapel Hill, Professa
Marajean Marvin who teaches

It was good to see Student
Center and a Student Faum
waking together and to see
deserving students receive a
reward fa their effats. Let's
hope there is a Third Annual
Artists Competition next year,
and maybe more of us will enjoy
that one.

Saturday Night Fever: 'colorf ul
Staff Writer
John Travolta explodes onto
the screen in this colorful,
exciting and spirited portrayal of
the disco scene. Against the
backdrop of the current disco
craze, "Saturday Night Fever"
emerges as a serious examination
of the dreams and desparations of
the disco set.
Travolta delivers a dynamic,
characterization of Tony Manero,
leader of a Brooklyn gang, the
Faces, who works in a paint store
in order to afford his weekly binge
on the dance floor.
As he performs his ritualistic
preparation fa a night in the
disco, (performing a Bruoe Lee
workout beneath the watchful
visage of Al Pacino, visions of
Farrah Fawcett-Majors'5 pearlies
flashing in his head) Travolta's
Tony is transformed into a
modern day Everyman, the proto-
typical male youth of the 70' s.
The Faces, as their name
implies, are the masters of flash
and strut; they represent a society
in which appearance constitutes
reality, facade supersedes sub-
stance, and emotional interper-
sonal relations are considered
embarrassingly vulgar.
Within this peer group a
modern youth learns the facts of
life: how to dress, arrange one's

Staff Writer
Yes, readers, the mentality of
the Inquisition lives on, embodied
in Hal Lindsey. AsLindsey quotes
Demosthenes in his book, The
Late Great Planet Earth: "We
believe whatever we want to
believe What Lindsey wants to
believe isthat atheism, astrology,
and witchcraft are responsible fa
the collective ills of society,
ranging from air and water
pollution to killer bees.
The film's first twenty
minutes are credible, as it begins,
innocuously enough, with an
examination of the predictions of
the Hebrew prophets which have
already come to pass.
Jeremiah's prophecy of the
destruction of Judah by Nebu-
chadnezzar of Babylon, as well as
Isaiah's prediction that King
Cyrus would allow the temple of
Jerusalem to be rebuilt, are cited
in order to establish the validity
of the Hebraic tradition of pro-
phetic writings.
All well and good, but at this
point the film loses all credibility.
The action now shifts to the
island of Patmos, where St. John
the Divine is peacfully eking out
his final days of exile. Beneath an
artificial moon, the avatar of
Ronnie Van Zant, who is now a
sweaty angel, arrives to enlighten
the aged apostle.
The ensuing action is a study
of chaos.
The Whore of Babylon spews
enough blood to make Gene
Simmons of Kiss envious, while
the wizened John is tormented by
the gyrations of odd men in
Playtex gloves and pantyhose. A
melange of recycled footage
follows, in which the Romans,
Seljuk Turks, and people who' ve
joined Today's Army' take on a

One would think (or wish) that
Lindsey would stop there. How-
ever, he oontinues, undaunted.
Lindsey is merely cashing in
on the oollective guilt pangs of the

erations. While the screen flashes

NCAA Ruling
At the NCAA meeting in Atlanta the proposal fa a so called "Super
Conference" of football powers was approved by the delegates to teh
This idea of a splitting of the NCAA's Division I was sought by the
85 a so "Super football powers What these schools wanted was
control over their own destinies in the spat of football and that is partly
what they got.
As the system was befae last week, all of the divisions of the
NCAA I, II and III voted as a group. In many cases the 85
"superpowers" were outvoted by the smaller NCAA schools.
It was a voting superiaity of this type that led to a limit of 8
assistant coaches and set limits fa the number of scholarship players a
school could have at a time a sign in aie year.
These rules amoig others were something that the superpowers
did not want a need. The rules were intended to save money and bring
about mae balance from top to bottom in the NCAA's Division I. In
other wads Alabama might have enough money to sign 50 prospects
but since they are limited to 30 scholarships other schools get a chance
of signing some high quality players that namally they would not get.
So Furman and Ball State can sign players capable of playing fa a
mae praninent football power because of these limits on reauits.
What the powers pushed fa and got was a splitting of the NCAA's
Division I into two separate groupings, Division IA and IA-A.
The idea was that in ader to be in the top division, IA, you must
meet certain requirements. This way only true "powerschools" would
be in the division. They would become a separate voting group and
be able to decide their own future.
In ader to be in Division IA a school must have several things. The
first is fa a school to field eight varsity spats including football.
The second aiteria is fa these schools to schedule at least 60
percent of their games with other IA members.
The third rule is that either a school must average 17,000 paid
attendance per home football game over a four-year period a they
must have a 30,000 seat (permanent seats) stadium, and have averaged
17,000 in aie of the last four years a they must field twelve varsity
spats recognized by the NCAA.
The "twelve spat rule" made the 85 member super conference
become a 135 member division which was almost as large as the old
Division I.
The "twelve spat rule" spaisaed by Colgate, William and Mary
and the Ivy League with the exception of Columbia is expected to last
only a year a so. After that it is believed that unless a school meets the
other requirements then it will become a Division IA school
What this adds up to is the so called "super conference" will not be
as exclusive as the maja powerswanted it tobethisyear. Eventually it
will become mae exclusive as stricter rules are set fa membership
and smaller schools fall to the wayside.
Wak is underway in the expansion of East Carolina University's
Ficklen Stadium. Heavy construction aews began ground wak last
Parke Construction Company of Charlotte was granted the
plumbing contract and Watson Electrical Company of Wilson was
granted the electrical bid. No bids were received fa the mechanical
area of the expansion, but accoding to the University officials that type
of wok can probably be done with local help from the University.
The seating capacity will be doubled with 35,000 total seats to be
available upon completiwi of the project. Also, a three-level press area,
a chancella' s box, an elevata to service the press and ohancella' s box
areas, and additional rest rooms to handle up to 39,000 people will be
added to the stadium.
Initially, only the first press box level will be complete, with the
second level being left an open hall to be oompleted at a later date. The
third level camera deck will also be completed at this time.
The oontracts call fa completion of the expansion by August 31,
1978. Should the stadium not be completed in time fa the first hone
game of next season, slated fa Sept. 23, the oontractas will be
required to pay the University $100,000.

career at Norview High under

Revils attributes most of his
success thus far this season to
wrestling in a weight class lower
than he wrestled in high school.
"I wrestled at 185 during high
school and I was always up
against guys that were a lot
bigger than I was said Revils.
"Now since I've been wrestling
down at 177 and 167 it seems like
the guys are smaller and it sure
gives me a lot more confidence
Despite his somewhat slow
start in dual matches this season,
Revils recently won a big match
over his old high school teammate
Mike Benzel 4-3 against North
Carolina although the Pirates lost
"It was great to beat him
because it was such a close
match said Revils, "but I was
disappointed we lost the match to
them. It's a pretty tense rivalry
between us and North Carolina. I
just can't wait fa them to wrestle
us down here because we'll really
be psyched. It should be a real
And just like most oollegiate
wrestlers Revils goal is to qualify
fa the NCAA Champiaishipsand
have a. chance to reap All-
America honas.

Pirates reopen in

The East Carolina track team
reopened its indoor season with a
select team of relay men and a
few of the talented sprinters at
theprestigasC.Y.O. Invitational
at College Park, MD. on Friday
the 13th. The traditional bad-
luck which goes along with
Friday 13 along with the magni-
tude of the meet proved to be to
much for the young competitors.
The C.Y.O. meet features many
Olympians along with the best
track and field men in the world.
A good example of the level of
performance came in the feature
mile run. Dick Berkley, an
American Olympian beat Filbert
Bayi of Africa, the defending
world record holder in the 1500
meter run, to set a new world
indoor world record for the mile.
Although the ECU squad gave
it the old Pirate try they just could
not come up with a winning
effort. On his way to a good
60-yard high hurdle race and

line the Pirate mile relay was

feature mile relay when the DC.

on the ECU squad. All in all it was
a good learning experience as
more and more this will be the
caliber of competitors the track-
men will be facing.
Not wasting anytime, the ECU
trackmen joined the remainder of
the team in Richmond fa the
Cheserfield Invitational. Here,
the strong East Carolina squad
was able to come right back and
show its strength and speed. For
many of the young Pirates this
was their first time competing on
the small 180 yd. board track.
Sophomore Otis Melvin, who
just missed All-Amaican honors
last year during outdoor season,
reeled off three 6.1's in the
60-yard dash to take 2nd place in
the University diviaon. Larry
Austin tied the meet record of 6.0
in the trials of the feature 60,
setting him up for a good shot at
Olympian Steve Riddic in the
final. The all important start
caught the senior flash from
Jacksonville on the jump, and he
was out. Marvin Rankins then
came back from his fall the night
before and blasted a 7.2 fa the 60
yd. high hurdles. Thejunia fran
Berti finished 3rd in the finals
while his time qualified him fa
the natiaials. Coach Carson
summed up the weekends effats
saying, Everyate ran real good.
Everyone gave 100 per cent.
Meanwhile, back in N.C
several of the ECU trackmen were
competing in the N.C. A.A.U.
Marathoi Champioiships. The
26 mile, 385 yard course ran from
Bethel to Oak City and back. Ed
Herefad of the N.C.T.C. won the
event in 2 hours 34 minutes. Jim
Dill, a junia at ECU finished 2nd
and dose behind the winner with
a time of 235.29 in his first try at
the distance. John White, com-
peting in his 4th 26-miler in 7
weeks finished a strong 4th with
Robbie Williams a creditable 20th
place out of 180 people

The Bucs missed Mack on the

the second half.
Mack did not play because of
