Sessoms defends board's decision
SGA debates media board
By CINDY BROOME
The SGA Legislature last
night debated the ECU Board of
Trustees' creation of an indepen-
dent Media Board. The board
made the decision last week.
SGA President Neil Sessoms,
also a member of the board of
trustees, spoke to the legislature
on behalf of the board's decision.
The proposal, presented to the
board by Sessoms, provided for
the immediate transfer of all
appropriated funds and property
currently in use by campus media
from the SGA to the newly
created Media Board.
"What the proposal did was to
create a non-political independent
board funded directly from stu-
dent fees said Sessoms.
"The board will be composed
of representatives from every
major organization on campus.
The board's function will be to set
policy, appropriate funds, and
"All we did is to take the
amount of money usually spent on
publications away from the SGA
and put it under the new board
"This will not affect funds for
the transit system, the legal
service, loans, a any other SGA
Sessoms said that approxi-
mately three-fourths of the
schools in the state have a similar
board fa their publications.
"Government oontrd of the
funding of the press is totally
against the ideals of free press as
we know it in the U.S said
"We told the board that the

Reader wants reporters out of gov't
With regard to the article
concerning Alonzo Newby's
attack upon FOUNTAINHEAD in
the Jan. 31 edition; it is strange
that Mr. Newby was not even
quoted nor was any background
given as to what actually occurred
in the legislature meeting, but we
did certainly get the reporters
version of what was said by Mr.
It seemed almost like a veiled
attack by the reporter on Newby.
In being so quick to defend
the reporter, Robert Swaim,
neglected good journalistic fund-
amentals by forgetting to tell us:
what prompted Newby's out-
burst, and what he was actually
quoted as saying. If the reporter
was not there, he should have
asked Mr. Newby or non-
interested witnesses (meaning
someone not being the subject of
Instead, we heard Reed
Warren's, Doug White's and
Charles Sune's opinions as to
what they thought about those
comments, whatever they
actually were. Since no reader can
be sure what Mr. Newby was
really talking about, maybe we
can assume he is correct. Why
else would his version be exclud-
A great deal of talking has
been done the past two years
about how FOUNTAINHEAD
needs to be funded independently
so they may achieve this great,
holy ideal of objectivity, since the
present set-up leaves too many
strings attached with politics at
the other ends.
It is strange how these folks
claim to be objective when Robert
Swaim was a past legislator at
least, on the appropriations com-
mittee. I' m unsure i f he remai ns a
legislator. Neil Sessoms reported
fa FOUNTAINHEAD last year
but, at least, no more.
I agree that publications
should be independently funded.
After all, what can be more
objective than a reporter report
-ing on his fellow worker and
quoting him while they both
defend their shrine?
Let's get the legislature out of
news reporting and news report-
ers out of the legislature. It
should be mandatory that
FOUNTAINHEAD staffers can't
be legislators or hold dual roles in
theSGA and news publications. If
such a situation occurred in the
adult world, there would be
instant cries of conflict of interest.
Of course, our campus leaders do

face? I wonder who is most

Most likely it is the students who
are bored, and rightly so, by it all.
Article focuses on conflict,
not legislative business
I am writing this letter in
reference to the headline article
of the January 31 edition of
FOUNTAINHEAD. The article
was a recount of the, previous
evening meetings of ,the SGA
legislature. It mentioned only
briefly, in the final two para-
graphs, the actual business con-
ducted by the legislature.
The remainder of the article
focused on the conflict petween a
certain legislator and the officials
of the SGA and
FOUNTAINHEAD. There was
considerable dust raised on both
sides of the argument, however
there was very little reason given
fa the legislator's comment.
I doubt that his statement was

Reader describes relationship with father; hopes
I don't know what possesses
me to write this, but I feel a need
of expressing myself, and hope-
fully a few will understand what
I'm trying to say.
I have recently lost a loved one
I had learned to enjoy in more
than one aspect. The most
important role this person played
in my life, wasthat of a father. As
a youngster, I looked at my father
as a person to fear because of his
disciplinary manner of assuring
obedience and conformity to
house rules. Reasons for what I
thought (sometimes) was too
harsh punishment were kept to a
minimum and to the situation at
hand. Never did I hear the lecture
about the formation of my charac-
ter, which was for the best,
because I never would have
believed it, and chances are it
would have bred resentment.
In my younger years I never
understood my father. Momma
was the one to run to. As I grew
older, I respected, and received a
better understanding of my fa-
ther. I first came to realize this(as
a senior in high school) as I was
riding with my father to a football
game, I had never known how to
communicate with my father, but
during this ride, my father was
the one to break the ice for me.

As time went on I became
closer to my father, and besides
being a son, I learned to be a
student, a friend, a participant,
and even a second opinion. Along
with this, I learned to love my
father more deeply because it
became an aJ I -encompassing
love. It was no longer just a
father-son love, it was the love of
a person fa what that person is.
Later, as I went tooollege, my
time with my father became more
limited and at the same time more
precious and valuable. I looked
forward to my visits home,
whereas a youngster I feared my
father. I turned to my father fa
advice, but as a youngster I had
run from him.
As I grew older I learned a
valuable lesson I had ignaed as a
youngster. I'm sure you've heard
the saying, "Someday you will
understand I'm glad to be able
to say that I do, and that I was
able to share that with my father
while he was alive.
My last visit home is the one I
will have of the most pleasurable
memaiesof my father. Fa three
days we spent time together,
talking and enjoying each other's
company fa what was to be the
last time. On the fourth day my
father was gone.
My father is gaie, as is the
ctominant figure of my life, and
left behind is an emptiness and
sarow which wads are tco feeble
to oonvey. The last good-bye is a
feeble one which will continue to
echo through my mind because
the one it is intended fa is na
with me physically to receive it.
I hope that all those who read
this get the same chance to
appreciate their father as I did.
His tomarow may soon be.

Legislator cites definition of objectivity
In response to
FOUNTAINHEAD'S denial of
being biased I would have to
disagree. Just using the article
'Legislata Accuses Paper of
Bias Jan. 31 as an example.
First, Alonzo Newby's characta
was attacked and he was accused
of being a liar. Secondly, his side
of the stay was not even printed.
And Charles Sune was quoted as
sayingcertain politicians in
SGA have tended to lambast the
paper when it ATTEMPTS to
report caruptioi to the
students This did not even
pertain to Alonzo's speech
because the paper had not
accused Alonzo of wrong doing.
He was challenging the object ive-
ness of the paper, which I would
like to point out.
Being objective means not
using wads as "assinine
"ignaant "bias" a even
"comments were without sub-
stance It means to write both
sides of a stay without taking
sides, something which
FOUNTAINHEAD can rx hon-
I hope that the students can
see through the paper's slander-
ous and biased news reporting
which is continually taking the
side of ex-FOUNTAINHEADER
Neil Sessom's administration.
After all, FOUNTAINHEAD, the
students pay fa this paper. We
have a right to read objective,
non-opinionated news repating.
After all, if we wanted to read the
repater's opinion on something
we would turn to the editaial

Editor's note: Perhaps Mr. Mertz
should reread the article in the
Jan. 31 edition of
FOUNTAINHEAD. The words
"assinine "ignorant and the
phrase "oomments were without
substance" were quotes from
various sources in the story.
Mertz said that "being objective
means not using words as
"assinine "ignorant "bias"
or even "comments were without

this newspaper said these words.
It did not. Those words were
direct quotes and the word

Rod Stewart: Footloose and Fancy Free
Thisalbum, like Stewart's career, beginsasa sizzling rocker only to
fade into monotony. The opening cut, "Hot Legs comes dose to
being a rock classic. The powerful three-guitar interplay is reminiscent
of Lynyrd Skynrd in their prime, and is a welcome rarity in this age of
saccharin Top-40 inanity.
The only other decent track on the album's first side is the love-sick
ballad, "You're in my Heart which includes some of the most
tasteful guitar playing on any Stewart LP (Thanks to Fred Tackett's
acoustic guitar work).
The remainder of the album is boring filler. Especially bad is' Born
Loose which contains so many allusions to other rock artists' works
that it approaches plagansm. Ending in a travesty of the blues, the
song collapses under its own weight.
The only sensitive work on the album, "I Was Only Joking
contains some introspective lyric poetry dealing with the self-defeating
delusionsof youth, yet is merely a mature look at Stewart's adolescent
Stewart has simply outgrown the character which he is trying to
portray. Some rock musicians can remain the enternal adolescent
(Townshend and Jagger, fa example) and get away with it. The
teen-ager self-consciously practicing his "look" in front of the mirror
has grown into a middle-aged coquet who thinks he's the cutest thing
out of Scotland since the kilt.
The album follows Stewart's ordinary formula: mix two a three air
wave hits with one rock remake and at least four tracks of pure filler.
While this is certainly the best assemblage of musicians to
accompany him, Stewart's creative ability has degenerated too far to

Del Lewis, of the ECU Depart-

The "Owl and the Pussycat
somewhat different from typical

with a serious underlying theme.
This bittersweet play is often
funny and painful at the same
time, ranging from the very light
to the darkly bitter.

The question that seems to come up more often when talking about
sports on campus these days is "why?" "Why is a team so full of talent
losing to teams like UNC-Ashevilie and a 3-14 Richmond team Why
Well, first of all, let me say that I oertainly don't have all the
answers. There can be alot of things that effect winning or losing. Such
factors as the schedule, dose losses and coaching all have a definite
effect on the players and how they will react to a certain situation.
I have talked to many people over the past months to get varied
ideas on the problems our team is facing. The themes which seem to
crop up time and time again are the lack of defensive play, lack of
respect for coach Gillman by his players and his whole attitude
concerning the situation.
Let me first say that I am in no way intending to degrade the
players. We have excellent talent on our team and I don't blame them
in anyway for what has happened this year. The players did what they
were told until they stopped believing in what was being taught to
This is part of the problem now. Some of the team members have
lost respect for coach Gillman and I really can't blame some of them.
Anyone near the bench of the University of Richmond game could hear
Gillman chewing out his players for making mistakes. That's alright to
a certain degree but the mistakes are something that should be
corrected in practice. Degrading a player in front of his teammates and
the fans won't help the situation and only hurtsthe coaches respect wth
his players. From the game the other night it appears that respect fa
Gillman's abilities as a coach are almost nonexistent.
Can the problems of the basketball team be all Gillman's fault and
nooneelses? It is hard to say fa sure but from what I have seen if any
human coaching erra is involved Gillman would have to be blamed.
After all he runs the whole show, doesn't he? His assistant coaches
(ballboys) are referees at practice and nothing el�3. If Gillman would
listen to his assistants he might learn something. Fa example, coach
Billy Lee who famally coached at New Bern High School is noted fa
his defensive coaching ability.
In fact last year (his first at ECU) the Pirates had the lowest
defensive average in the last three years, six points better per game
than the previous two years. And Gillman oould certainly use some
help teaching defense!
This was evidenced by the game with Old Dominion. Out of the 59
points ODU scaed in the first half against ECU 38 came fron tap ins
and lay-ups. This was done against a zoie defense! Our defense could
use Lee's ability as a coach but he just sits on the bench wasted.
Speaking of waste I guess the ultimate waste of taJent is Jim
Ramsey. His list of aedentials is outstanding. He was the Metro player
of the year (an award that Tony Warren of N.C. State received the year
befae.) Last year Jim was hoiaable mentioi all-Southern
Conference, all rookie team in the Southern and second team
all-Southern Conference Tournament at Roanoke Va. At Cary High
School he broke Phil Fad's recad in the Raleigh Times Holiday
Festival Tournament scaing 39 points in one game. Fad's recad was
So the question goes on-why does Ramsey get little a no playing
time with all of his talent and ability? He deserves much more than he
is getting! Since he hasn't been used much this year at all. When he
does get a chance toplay.Jim seems to try so hard he makes a mistake.
When this happens Gillman pulls him out of the game as he did at
Duke. His skills have faded on the bench. Besides Oliver Mack,who is
indeed the superstar Gillman said he was,could use some help scaing
in the game. Jim is a fine assist man vid could play point guard
also. But as it seems fa the time being the alent waste will ooitinue.
Ramsey is not the only player not getting his dues. Kyle Powers
probably is the best pure shooter on the team besides Herb Krusen. If
you doubt that check out his statistics against Duke a ODU.
The whole problem seems to boil down to this. Larry Gillman has a
team full of talented players that are eager and young. Yes, they are
very young but they aren't so young that they should lose to Richmond
with the year they are having a UNC-Asheville. The team is playing
like they are being ooached which is peer.
I feel, and so does most of the student body, that fa the good of our
basketball program that a change is definitely needed. Let's hope fa a
change of some kind at seasons end.

Richmond downs Pirates in heartbreaker 82-80

"To win. you must play hard

team s 82-80 loss to Richmond.
We played hard
The Pirates gave Richmond
their first victory of the year on
the road and prompted several
unfriendly chants from the home
crowd of nearly 3,(XX).
Oliver Mack and Herb Krusen
contributed their usual 30 and 18
points respectively but the porous
Pirate defense could not contain
the inside play of Miller Butler
and freshman Mike Perry.
Perry scored 30 points himself
while Butler added 15 points and
13 rebounds. Richmond had
averaged between 60-65 points
through it's first 16 games
enroute to a 3-13 before Saturday
The game itself was close the
entire night with neither team
building up much of a lead.
Momentum was often slowed by
questionable calls of officials and
calls not made. Onlooking
fans were treated to a new type of
game where a player can take
three steps before shooting the
ball and where it is permissible to
ride piggy back; not to mention
