Legislator Alonzo Newby ac-
cused FOUNTAINHEAD, Neil
Sessoms, SGA president
Reed Warren, SGA vice presi-
dent, and Tommy Joe Payne,
speaker of the legislature of
being biased, unobjective, and
unethical at last night's SGA

without substance said War-
statements were par for the

Warren said that he has
complete faith in Payne's inte-

Newby's attacks on .FOUNT-

political face in the legislature,

"Hopefully Newby's attacks
on the newspaper will be taken
with a grain of salt said
Charles Sune, a legislata,

year that certain petty politicians
in SGA have tended to lambast
the newspaper when it attempts

resented Newby s attack oi the
newspaper's credibility and that

"I think Newby is ignaant of
the way newspapers operate and
the way staies are written

more qualified than Newby to
judge news oontent and the
credibility of my reporters

defeated a bill to appropriate $666
to the Model UN. The bill was
defeated by a vote of 14 to 9.

Peace Corps accepts
31 January 1978 FOUNTAINHEAD
By STUART MORGAN
Assistant News Ecfltor
The Peace Corps in coopera-
tion with ECU has set up an
office here in 425 Flanagan Bldg
and is now accepting applications
from prospective volunteers
throughout the Eastern N.C.
In its second decade, the
organization now has 6,045 vol-
unteers in 62 countries in Latin
America, Africa, Asia and the
Created in 1961, encouraged
and expanded by Presidents
Kennedy and Johnson, but sys-
temically cut back by Presidents
Nixon and Fad, the Peace Corps
is active but virtually unheard of
today by most persona
The organization has been
administered by ACTION since
July 1, 1971. However, its goals
have not changed.
Since 1961, the Peace Corps
has been helping to promote
world peace and friendship and
helping developing countries to
meet their needs fa skilled men
The program here will be led
by two Peace Caps representa-
tives, famer volunteers Frank P.
Cook, Jr. and David Jenkins.
Judy Ramey, reauitment re-
source specialist from Washing-
ton, D.C recently visited ECU
and discussed the training and
the mission of the Peace Caps
with the two representatives.
"We really urge students to
begin thinking about the Peace
Caps and its opportunities and to
begin talking to the representa-
"We're looking fa indivi-
duals who are highly motivated,
flexible, and who have a tolerance
fa ambiguity. A Peace Caps
experience is what the individual
makes of it said Ramey.
The namal tour of duty in the
Peace Caps is 24 months,
following training which is usu-
ally received in the country where
the volunteer serves.
The experiences that Cook
and Jenkins had while volunteers
in Africa differed somewhat.
Cook graduated from Rhode
Island College with a bachela of
arts degree in math.
Afta graduation, he volun-
teered fa the Peace Caps and
was flown to Sierra Leone, a
country on the west coast of
Africa badering Liberia.
Thae he received 6 weeks of
intensive training in the culture
and language of that country.
Cook taught math and science
in a secondary school in the
village of Taiama and waked
with the Mande Tribe, the largest
of the 13 tribes in Sierra Leone.
Of the 500 children who
attended that school, 300 lived in
a boarding school. Cook, also
boarding school master, attempt-
ed to teach the children to play
such American spats as basket-
ball during his free time.
"The children there grow up
playing spats which involve
using their feet and not their
hands. They oould really play
soocer, but I had difficulty
teaching them to play basket-
ball said Cook.
"We had a pretty good school
there. The school received sup-
pat from the United Natiais and
sane funds fran the local govern-
ment added Cook.
Cook waked asavolunteer in
Taiama fa 30 maiths and is now
attending graduate school here.
"As a volunteer, I exper-
ienced a different way of living
a diffaent way of looking at
things. I have many fine memor-
ies of the experiences and the
people I met while in Africa
Jenkins left ECU at the end of
his sophomae year to enter the
Peace Caps as a volunteer.
On entering, he was flown to
Zaire in the heart of Africa whae
he received 10 weeks of ctoss
Afterwards, he was sent to
Moma (50 miles from Angda)
where he waked at an agricul-
"We ran a farm, raised
rabbits, chickens, pigs, ducks,
and goats on a mere $5,000
budget said Jenkins.
"The Africans supplied the
labor, we supplied the materials
and supervised and assisted oily
when necessary. It's a self-help
program said Jenkins.
Moma is an abandoned mis-
sion and has good facilities. But,
supplies were very rare.
"The people there are na
starving, they're malnourished.
"We were in the middle of
nowhere. A plane flew in once a
month and brought a docta and
our mail said Jenkins.
Jenkins said that he and the
other volunteers were able to
maintain radio contact with Voice
of Amaica from Greenville once
each day at 1 p.m.
" Most of the 300 people there
oouldn't read a write since they
had no public education. That
made our job all the more
difficult said Jenkins.

Parking gets worse
The ever-present parking problem is steadily
growing worse. As enrollment increases each year,
more vehicles are registered, and the limited amount
of space fa campus parking shrinks more than ever.
Joseph Calder, director of traffic and security,
has said that plenty of parking spaces exist on
campus for everyone, including day and dorm
students, and faculty and staff members. However,
on a day when it seems that everyone has decided to
attend class, finding a parking space can become a
The parking situation could be improved to a
degree if the dirt parking lots behind Mendenhall
Student Center and Joyner Library were paved.
When Greenville's inclement weather is at its full
force, finding a parking space becomes an extreme
The proolem of getting stuck in the mud looms
over the driver's head, also. Even if the road directly
behind Mendenhall was paved, at least one problem
would be solved. Walking through the mud can prove
hazardous, too, considering the fact that one could
injure himself should he slip down.
Parking spaces in front of the drama building rent
for $95 per year,but the lot won't begin to make money
until 1981. Those spaces shouldn't have to be rented
in the first place. Parking on campus is cramped
enough as it is without charging a yearly rental fee
which guarantees a parking space.
However, money for paving parking lots must be
self-generated. According to Calder, approximately
$80,000 to $100,000 would be needed to pave six lots
behind the student center. Approximately $10,000 to
12,000 would be needed in order to pave an area on
which two rows of cars are parked.
At least some improvement on some dirt lots has
begun. According to Calder, the paving of the
Garrett dorm lot is halfway oomplete.
The cost of the paving is approximately $10,000.
The next phase of improvement oonoerning parking
is to pave the recently constructed dirt lot behind
Belk dorm. Calder also said that plans have been
made to clear out the area on the north side of Jones
dorm to form a dirt lot; this area would yield 50
Much needs to be done to improve the parking
situation, both in creating new lots and paving the
old ones. While the improvements seem to be taking
such a long time, at least something is being done.
Perhaps if money came as easily to improve the
parking problem as it did to carpet bookstores and
enlarge stadiums, there would be few, if any, parking
problems at all.

Student considers remarks Ignorant'
I would like to submit a
oomment or two regarding an
article written by Mr. Kent
Johnson in the January 24 issue
of FOUNTAINHEAD, which dealt
with the Young Artist Comneti-
It is my opinion that many of
Mr. Johnsons's ignorant remarks
were cruel, unnecessary, and
indicative of a very limited
understanding of music.
In his article, Mr. Johnson
failed to mention the many hours
of painstaking practice and pre-
paration whihc are a vital and
necessary part of pulling off a
good musical performance. If he
did, perhaps he would not be so
quick to criticize musical per-
I suggest that in the future,
such articles either (a) reveal only
the precise facts a (b) be written
by an individual who has more
of a thorough understanding of
the performing arts.
The editor may wish to read
Mr. Johnson's article to see just
what type of articles appear in the
something should be done to
remedy this situation.
Student praises AIA basketball players
I am writing in regard to the
Athletes in Action basketball and
wrestling teams. On January 19,
our basketball team out scored
the AlA's basketball tea i, then
on the following night AlA's
wrestling team was also defeated
23-19. What I'd like to say is that
these young men sponsored by
Campus Crusade fa Christ (AIA)
all have my highest esteem.
These players have dedicated
their lives to working fa Christ by
trying to bring others to experi-
ence the abundant life each of us
were planned to have had. Each
three years ago when the AlA's
were here I aocepted Christ as
my personal savia and since
that time my life has seen many
changes, one of which I am
displaying now because three
years ago I would have been too
timid to have written anyting like
I am writing now. Even though
the scae showed AIA lost, I
really believe they are the Win-
ers because they have Christ on
their side! Do you???

Late Great Planet Earth" yet then

I would like to congrat-
ulate Ms. Hogge and Campus
Crusade fa Christ rjn their recent
and well published induction of
thirty-four new members. A
question should be asked, how-
eva. Who do I congratulate for
the unknown mass of average,
"Joe Blow" students who are
once again repelled from any
further search of the "Christian
life" by a "ausading obnox-
ious and cult-like aganizatiai-an
aganizatiai which seemingly
controls the exclusive campus
rights fa personal saJvatioi and
the waking of God's miracles?
Dr. Bill Bright's (the new
Messiah?) Campus Crusade fa
Christ is a vay efficient and
effective aganizatiai fa it does,
with great intensity, accomplish
many of its self-assigned tasks,
the majaity of which I now so
respectfully challenge in the
name of God. (Intaesting!) I
would also like to challenge the
average, "Joe Blow" students to
renew the search fa their own
God-Savia and theology, and to
realize that Campus Crusade fa
Christ should na be considered
as the sole representative of the
Christian faith on this a any
Nuclear facility routinely emits radiation

'Puffs' of radiation common but hazardous

Power Plant in Waterford, Con-
necticut in mid-December, releas-
ing a "puff" of radiation and
highly contaminating one worker,
company and federal officials
were the first to discount the
incident as a common occurrence
and "no public hazard
Common it may be, but
non-hazardous is another ques-
tion. In the aftermath of the
explosion it turns out that the
worker was exposed to thirteen
times more radiation than ori-
ginally reported-enough to be
risky even though it does not
exceed the "safe level" set by
government standards. And an
article by Alexander Cockburn
and James Ridgeway in the
December 28 Village Voice points
out that the recent incident at
Millstone is but one in a long
series of accidents at the twin
power plants since they began
operations in 1970. During this
same period there has been an
alarming increase in the cancer
rates for residents of the area.

Millstone power plants routinely

increasing cancer and death rates
in nearby communities. Between
1970 and 1975, the cancer rates in
Waterford rose 58 percent; and in
nearby New London (five miles

44 percent. For Connecticut as a
whole, the rates rose 12 percent
in this five-year period.
These cancer rates are signi-
ficantly higher than the rest of
New England. Rhode Island's, for
example, rose eight percent; New
Hampshire, one percent. The rate
in Maine actually declined by six

Close Encounters: a significant film excursion
By STEVE BACHNER
As a young boy, directa
Steven Spielberg's singleness of
purpose left his parents little
room fa speculaiion about their
son's future. Spielberg, a teen-
ager, would delight in terraizing
his little sisters in ways inspired
by science fiction movies he had
seen on television. A movie buff
since he was old enough to
change a channel, the adolescent
entrepreneur made a sci-fi flick
when he was only 16. The movie
ran some two and one half hours
and ooncerned itself with visitas
Thirteen years have elapsed
since that first effat, and the 29
year -old Spielberg now one of the
most successful directas in
Hollywood, has yet to grow up.
The film industry should thank its
lucky stars, it doesn't have that
many anymae, that he never did.
Fa while most of Spielberg's
conoepts require inadinately
conplex treatment and a wealth
of technology, the final effect in
every case has been marvelousiy
DUEL, a made-fa-TV movie
about a traveling businessman
who is inexplicably hunted by a
transfer truck, the driver of which
we never see, is a taut little
achievement that generates tre-
mendous suspense and serves as
an excellent example of what can
be done on a smal I budget.
JAWS, a movie deemed too
difficult to make, serves as
an excellent example of what can
be done on a great big budget. It
was well wath all the trouble and
expense. JAWS bah entertained
audiences and terrified them-
while the perfamances were
sound, it was the shark that stole
the show-or rather fear of the
Spielberg used two old, low
tricks from the 50's here: First,
fascination with the unkown
enables the filmmaker to whet an
audiences curiosity by painting a
harible picture of the film's
maja attraction and never letting
us get a good look at it until the
climactic sequence. You save the
best special effects fa last and as
long as the situation is resolved,
we are sure of what is going to
happen to our favaite characters,
then everything is fine. Alfred
Hitchcock took this idea one step
further in THE BIRDS by simply
leaving us "hanging" in the end.
The second trick is to simply let
the camera sneak up behind the
audience and yell "boo One
good screen jolt keeps an au-
dience on the edge of their seats
in anticipation of anaher. Hitch-
cock once again, this time
Spielberg's latest execution of
cinematic fun and games, CLOSE
ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD
KIND, is the culmination of his
directaial expertise thus far.
Special effects mean mae to
CLOSE ENCOUNTERS than they
have to any maja motion picture
in years. In the relatively shat
period since its release around
Christmas, the film has become
not only a aitical success but a
huge commercial success as well.
The directas tribute to the
science fiction films of the 50's
grossed nearly $40 million after
only 20 days following its release.
The $18 million vehicle had xo
bring home the bacon. Like the
movie's premise, the hype that
has accompanied it is also out of
this wald. First Columbia Pic-
tures released full page ad-mats
that appeared in national publica-
tions almost a full year befae the
film's release. The mats gave the
project an aura of mystery. Next
came trailers exhibited in thea-
tres aaoss the oountry, some
lasting as long as five minutes,
exploiting the all-star personnel
and finally feature staies in all
the principle newspapers and
So CLOSE ENCOUNTERS will
inevitably end up one of the big
money makers of all time; it is,
incidentally, a fine film in its own
right. With ticket prices soaring
higher than the flying saucers (as
much as four dollars in some
theatres), one would think he was
going to see a live perfamance
with real UFO's. Matter of factly,
it is hard to imagine a real UFO
being any mae breathtaking than
the ones conceived fa CLOSE
Needless to say, the special
effects are so much superb
wizardry enacted by technical
genius Douglas Trumbull (Who
perfamed similar feats in Stanley
Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE
RICHARD DREY FUSS AS Roy Neary is nearly blinded by the
extraordinary lights from an unidentified flying object in "Close
Encounters of the Third Kind
MELINDA DILLON ASJullian Guiler and Cary Guffey as her son
Barry huddle together as something extraordinary comes down
from the skies outside their Indiana home in "Close Encounters of
the Third Kind
ODYSSEY). Lighta in tone than
some science fiction extravagan-
zas, most naably 2001; heavier
than rthers, CLOSE ENCOUN-
TERS focuses mae ai the human
element than one might think.
Just as in Spielberg's previous
films, a small group of people are
depicted and their fascination
with the unknown is explaed. In
this case, Roy Neary (Richard
Dreyfuss) and Jillian Guiler
(Melinda Dillon) represent a aoss
section of the American public.
And the unknown face that
compels them in their plight is a
fascination with the extraterres-
trial vehicles that they have both
had close encounters with.
Fascination soon turns into
compulsion which in turn be-
comes a vivid psychic implant.
The vision is shared by all who
are uninhibited enough to follow
the invitation which will lead
them to the first big meeting of
aliens and earthlings. This meet-
ing lays the foundation fa the
film's climactic spectacle which
fillsthe final twenty minutes. The
landing of the maher spaceship,
beautifully phaographed by
Dennis Muren, is a sequence so
dynamic that if defies desaiption.
The special effects fa this scene
rank with those in the "parting of
the Red Sea" sequence from
DeMille's THE TEN COM-
MANDMENTS. Fa authenticity,
the illusion is unmatched.
Certainly one of CLOSE
ENCOUNTERS most attractive
qualities is a freshness of ap-
proach that sets it apart from
rther Spielberg projects. The film
exudes innocence and displays
the directa's preoccupation with
children-four-year old Cary Guf-
fey gives a marvelousiy unaffect-
ed perfamance and, as perfa-
mances go, he steals the movie.
The rest of the characterizations
are well above average fa this
kind of fare (Dreyfuss' espe-
An added treat fa film buffs
is the casting of brilliant French
directa Francois Truffaut in his
first movie role as international
UFO expert Claude Lacombe.
Spielberg's tribute to the great
directa turns out to be a good
choice fa the part and Truffaut
gives the film an exaic flava
with his French.
However, the majaity of the
time the cast is asked .simply to
stand transfixed, eyes wide, and
mouths agape. At one pant
during the final twenty minutes of
CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, I took a
second to look around me and saw
people who were mae realistic-
ally in awe than their ai-screen
The television industry is ever
expanding and video disks are
just around the oaner. If theatre
chains are to survive the boom
mae movies like CLOSE EN-
COUNTERS are a must. Hats off
to Steve Spielberg. He has taken
the carnival atmosphere out of the
amusement parks and brought it
back to the movife house where it

And now, the movie. Vintage
newsreels introduce the film, as
Princess Grace of Monaco and Pat
Nixon trail aaoss the silver

The remainder of the film is
classic comic material-a bunch of
high school bucks trying to get

trying to save it fa marriage, las
of beer drinking and car racing,
and a cop who gets caught in

but the comedy just doesn't oome
The focal point of the film
seems to be the antique bra

Big zip on the tit illation scale.

The characterizations in the

being onerous. Meegan King, as
Kenny, and Harry Moses, as
Pete, engage in shallow imita-
tions of Bogart and Redfad fa

The film is a beautifully
phaographed and acted drama
about the lives of a dying woman,
her sisters, and a servant girl.
Bergman confronts the depths of
the feminine psyche and the
realities of the human conditioi
with a shattering intensity that
only he can aeate.
Cries and Whispers probes
and dissects the lives of these
women with sensitivity and skill,

Not unlike the Swedish-born
directo's previous woks (The
Seventh Seal; Wild Strawberries),
the film suggests that Swedish
characters still feel the same
guilt, the same need fa ataie-
ment through suffering as their

WHAT COACH LARRY GILLMAN IS SAYING
About Old Dominion University: "Paul Webb has proven himself as a
coach with his record. They are back on the winning note after some
personnel problems. It's fortunate for us that this game is home after
going to Duke on Saturday. We've got to be pleased to be back home
About the Pirate Team: "I thought we played belter ball in the loss to
UT-Chattanooga than in the win at Georgia Southern. I think it is a
mark of an improving team to not play as well as it can and still win on
the road. Our press is becoming more and more effective. That's just
experience. I don't really feel we're a 4-11 team, nor does the team.
We've just got to learn to win all the close ones and not just some of
Noting the Pirates
Junior all-America candidate Oliver Mack is seventh in the latest
NCAA statistics fa individual scoring. Mack's average was 26.8 points
per game at the time of the rankings, while his average has dropped to
26.1 at the present time. The drop came after a subpar game against
Georgia Southern in which Mack scored but 16 points while playing
with the flu.
While the Georgia Southern game was not one of Mack's best
games, the UT-Chattanooga game certainly was. The Queens, N.Y
native ripped the nets for 41 points in Chattanooga, missing the school
txxing mark of 42 by one point. That record was set during the 1969-70
jason by Jim Modlm of Jamestown. N.C. The fieldhouse record at
Chattanooga s MaClelland Gym is also 42 points.
Sophomore forward Herb Krusen has connected on 37 of 38 free
throws thus far this year, ranking him number one in the nation with
97.4. The NCAA statistics did not reflect that this week; however, as
Krusen was listed by the NCAA as having played in all games to date.
But Krusen did not play in the season opener at Indiana. Thus, when
computing percentages Krusen did not show up in the NCAA statistics
for lack of free throw attempts. But when figured on his actual games
played to date, he does qualify and does lead the nation. Krusen has a
streak of 26 consecutive free throws made, dating back to Dec. 17,
when he missed the second shot of a two-shot free throw attempt.
"There's three reasons for Herb's great shooting said coach Larry
Gillman. "One, he's an excellent shooter to begin with. Two, I think he
feels I now have confidence in him as a player. And three, our amount
of time spent in practice each day shooting free throws, 20-30 minutes
per session, has helped The string comes as no surprise, as Krusen
hit 43 consecutive free throws at one point during his senior year in
high school at Northwood High. He also finished the year hitting
109-117 for an amazing percentage of 96.
Junior oenter Greg Cornelius has played his finest collegiate
basketball ever over the last five games, two in particular. Against both
UNG-Asheville and Georgia Southern, Cornelius had 15 rebounds, his
career high. He scored a season high 19 points against Georgia
Southern. Over the last three games, Cornelius has hit 13 of 20 from
the floor (65) and 15 of 24 from the line (62.5).
Freshman guard Walter Moseley tied the school single game assist
record vs UT-Chattanooga with 13 assists. The record is now jointly
held with Ernie Pope from the Appalachian State game in 1972-73.

Pirates finish strong at Pitt Relays
Coming off its strongest finish
ever in the Pitt Invitational, the
East Carolina University indoor
track team appears set for this

"You just don't get one like

Such a strong showing oomes
at the right time as East Carolina
will faoe a stiff field in Lexington.
"This year's VMI Relays will
be better than in the past due to a
lack of other meets this week-
end said Carson. "N.C. State,
North Carolina, Norfolk State and
others will be there this year. I
expect this to be a super meet
"I think the mile relay should
be the feature event. N.C. State,
VMI and our team should make it
shape up to be a super race.
Believe me, we can be beaten by
both teams. We have a better
time than State in the mile relay
this year and we've beaten VMI
already. But the matchups will be
In addition to the mile relay,
the Pirates are hoping for strong
showings in the 880 relay, spring
medley relay and distance medley
relay. In ether events, strong
finishes should oome in the
60-dash, the high hurdles, the
triple jump and the high jump.
"Marvin Rankins should be
favored in the hurdles noted
Carson, while Scott for VPI will be
slightly favored over Otis Melvin
and Calvin Alston in the 60.
Herman Mdntyre and George
Jackson should be favored in the
triple jump, and Curt Dowdy

The triple jump oould oome

Dowdy likes VMI's Pitt, pri-
marily due to the 610" high
jump he had there earlier this
year in setting a new East
Carolina school record.
While the Pirates will not put
great emphasis on the 440 relay
this year, the ECU dub does hold
the meet record in the event with
a :43.2 last year. In addition to
winning the 440, the Pirates are
also defending champs in the 880
One different bit of strategy is
planned by the Pirates' Bill
Carson. The distance medley will
be emphasized, while the two
mile relay will not.
We hope to run strong in the
distance medley to prove we are
not as weak here as most think
we are said Carson. "In doing
so, we will have to sacrifice some

No other school had more than

George Jackson, junior triple
jumper from Wilmington, was
named the Outstanding Field
Events Performer at the Pitt
Invitational. The award was
based on his jump of 50W,
best for East Carolina this year.

coach Carson. "It was around 14
