ECU program helps deaf
students adjust to
Assistant News Edita
The deaf program at ECU,
after over a year in existence, is
proving successful despite some
academic adjustment problems of
the deaf students, accading to
Mike Ernest, ooadinata of the
deaf program.
The deaf program at ECU
began in April, 1976.
Accading to Ernest, the
parents of deaf children felt a four
year deaf program was needed in
a Nath Carolina university.
ECU, along with three other
univasities, sent in a proposal to
the Board of Directas which was
"There are five deaf students
and three hard of hearing stud-
ents at ECU and they all live in
dams Ernest said.
"Most wanted hearing room-
mates who knew sign language.
They were given a choice of
hearing roommates he said.
Aooading to Ernest, the deaf
students lead a well balanced
social life.
"They like ECU, ,he said.
"They associate with one another
quite a lot, but they also go out
with hearing students
"They can participate in all
the campus activities. They join
saaities, and fraternities, go to
ooncerts, plays, movies, and any
campus meetings
Aocadinq to Ernest, three
deaf students have a teletypewrit-
er in their rooms. This enables
them to talk on the telephone by
use of a "ooupler which sends
messages as they type on the
Ernest also said that they
wake up in the manings by a
flashing alarm clock.
Aooading to Ernest, one club
on campus, the Caption Films
Club, was aganized specifically
fa the deaf students.
"Films with sound are shown
but captions are used Ernest
Ernest also noted that deaf
persons in the Greenville area are
invited to attend.
There are some academic
adjustment problems, however.
Accading to Ernest, the
freshman students have not rec-
eived enough oollege preparation
and the wakload at ECU is very
"They were weak in vocabul-
ary, math skills, and written
English skills Ernest said.
"A Irt of the students write
with sign language in mind and it
doesn't follow the English pat-
"It's almost as if the deaf
students are faeign students.
Their natural langauge isn't
English, it's American Sign Lang-
uage, (Amislan)
Accading to Ernest, Amislan
is used by American deaf adults
and involves many gestures and
Ernest said some of the
problems are being solved by
helping the students develop
writing skills and teaching the
faculty sign language.
Aooading to Ernest, a special
English course has been aeated
fa the deaf students.
"They are showing lots of
improvement and are waking
very hard he said.
He also said that the students
can maja in any subject, but they
lean toward liberal arts, psycho-
logy, and education.

No overpass, but maybe
Students have clamored in the past for an
overpass at the intersection of Tenth Street and
College Hill Drive in order to avoid pedestrian-
vehicle accidents. An overpass, if used, would help to
alleviate problems at this intersection.
However, an overpass would cost approximately
$200,000, according to Cliff Moore, vice-chancellor
for business affairs. This overpass would be a state
project and there is absolutely no guarantee that the
students would use it.
Accidents have occured at this intersection in the
past and will continue to occur until a plan is
implemented which would provide safety to the
students when they make the daily journey to from
the Hill dorms or from day student parking lots to
Herb Carlton, an associate professor of political
science, has an alternate plan to the proposed
overpass. Instead of an overpass, Carlton believes
that eliminating ail left turn signals, closing the
entrance now open in front of the music building and
opening another one and extending the median up to
Maple Street would help decrease the number of
accidents at this intersection.
Carlton also proposed having a fence installed
along Tenth Street to stop students from jaywalking.
Carlton's idea is definitely one that the
administration should consider. While most people
bemoan the fact that the intersection is a hazard but
do nothing to alleviate the problem, this professor
has created an idea that would surely be well worth
Carlton said in an article in the Jan. 24 edition of
FOUNTAINHEAD that he has seen five accidents at
the intersection. All of them except one involved a
Students should not be subjected to crossing a
dangerous intersection. They should have an
alternate. This intersection is even more of a problem
to the handicapped students on campus.
Considering the fact that probably few, if any,
students would use the overpass, then $200,000 of
state money would be down the drain.
Moore should now study the plan and estimate
how much money would be needed for this project.
The University should submit a bill to the N.C.
Legislature and all students who are concerned with
having a safer intersection should lobby for this
desperately needed project.

Art student upset over writer's 'review'of artist's siide show
I am writing to comment'
on David Whitson's "Conceptual
Artist" article concerning Nancy
Holt, which appeared in your
paper's rebruary 9th issue.
It is apparent tome that David
Whitson was more concerned
with making a slurr against the
reputation of the school of art
than he was interested in present-
ing the student readers with an
objective, balanced, and accurate
report on Ms Holt's visit to ECU.
I should also mention that
Whitson's use of the term, 'lady
artist seems to show a blatent
disrespect fa, and belittlement of
women artists, and women in
Concerning his accuracy in
repating onMs. Holt's present-
ation, Whitson failed to mention
the lecture and slide presentation
that proceeded the video present-
ation, held at Blimpie's.
Whitson's repat ai the subject of
the video tape was inaccurate.
Dennis Wheeler, not Robert
Smithsen, was the artist who was
dying of leukemia. (Dennis
Wheeler happened to be a close
friend of Ms. Holt.)
Further, concerning the re-
view of Ms. Holt's film present-
ation, Whitson haspatrayed Holt
as an artist who shows no concern
fa the inhabitant of the New
Jersey 'pineys I felt that this
was na the case, as Ms. Holt's
film was accompanied by a
soundtrack which consisted of
comments concerning the land-
scape and the way of life fa the,
pineys by the 'pineys them-
In my opinion, David Whitson
has contributed absolutely noth-
ing in regard to 'enlightening the
students on the subject of Nancy
Holt, and her art. Considering
the many contributions that the
school of art has made here at
ECU, it is really tough fa me to
stomach such biased, unsubstant-
iated journalistic copy as David
Whitson has presented in his

Jazz band Gallery
lives up to the hype
News Edita
One of the finest jazz ensem-
bles to hit Greenville in a long
time perfamed at The Line last
weekend to a wildly enthusiastic
Gallery, a five piece band
from Raleigh, had little trouble
living up to the hype which
proceeded their appearance.
Gal lay's sound is typical of
most popular jazz, centaed
around an electric guitar and
electric piano, played by John
Wilson and Allen Linthicum.
Howeva, one instrument in
particular stands out.
That instrument isthe voice of
lead vocalist Bisa Staton.
Staton' s voice has been fava-
ably compared to Minnie Ripa-
ton and Estha Sattafield. It has
a light, airy quality, dancing
along the scale with abandon.
Gal lay plays well as a group,
the instruments complementing

The band's repatoire ranged
from Geage Bensai to Earth,
Wind, and Fire, along with
sevaal aiginal numbas. Each
was pafamed with exuberance
and flair.
Staton's stage movements
were somewhat stiff until lata in
the evening, possibly due to the
small stage area in which she had
to move.
The weakest memba of the
band was bassist Tim Alston. His
playing was uninspired and, mae
often than na, unintaesting.

love is shared by the audience.
Vinyl Review
by David Whitson
Electric Light Orchestra: Out of the Blue
Fa those who find the dassicalrook fusion of Emason, Lake and
Palmer too cerebral, the Eledric Light Orchestra offas the altanative
of an easy-listening blend of the dassical, rock, and pop genres.
These long-haired British rockas have a firm background in
long-hair dassical music, which they calculatingly blend with
Beat lesque sounds to assure oommadal success. Coupling their music
with the faddish and Freudian space art album cova (which depids an
E.L.O. shuttleaaft thrusting into the gaping motha aaft) the
"Orchestra" hasa sure-fire spedally priced two-reoad set ready to hit
the racks.
Unfatunately, the band draws too heavily on the wak of rtha
groups in acter to achieve their blend of musical styles. Traces of Steve
Winwood's "Pearly Queen Pete Townshend's "Pinball Wizard
and almost any Beatles' song ('Maxwell's Silva Hammer "She's
Leaving etc.) haunt the album, whose songs were written, sung, and
produced by Jeff Lynne.
The audial devices which lend so much cola to the Beatles' waks,
ranging fron sound effects, vocal distatioi, and noisense lyrics, come
aaoss as contrived imitation in Lynne's waks. Fran a few "Oh, oh,
oh's" he ventures into the distressing Chooka chooka hoo la
leyLooka Icokakoo la lay" od" Jungle "O-bla-di, o-tHa-da" it ain't.
On the whole, the album oontains some decent easy listening
music. A definite improvement in the unity and musical maturity of the
band is revealed through the musical arrangements of the album,
hopefully leading to a mae definite album to follow.
Alan Parsons Project: Robot
I'll admit it, I expected this album to oe good. It wasn't-it is
Alan Parsons actually plays vay little on his albums. Instead, his
role is to mix the airy space funk of his musidans with the dignified,
somber tones of the English Chaale and the New Philharmonic
The concept fa the album is to tell the stay of the rise of the
Machineandthededineof Man, because Man tried to aeate a robot in
his own image, and Parson has produced a oonoept album that waks-a
relative rarity.
The album oonstantly changes tone, from upbeat space adventure
vibes, reminiscent of the Star Trek soundtrack, to meditative ballads
oomparable to the emotion-packed Jesus Christ Supastar" album. I
predid that this album will become a modan dassic, as it evo1: z
broad range of moods, well wath expaienang again and again.
Thanks again to Bob at School Kids Records.

solving his puzzle, Deerfield
becomes one himself in the eyes
of Lillian, who seeks to learn the
secret of death from a man who
must face self-destruction as an
occupational hazard.
Rather than learn about
death, the pair learn of life.
Marthe Keller, one of Europe's

Knowing that she is terminally ill,
Lillian seeks to capture every

Mack attacks Aiken

points, leading the Pirates to an
87-80 victory over the Pacers of
Mack broke the reoord with
over three minutes left in the
game with an 18 foot jump shot.
Perhaps even more of an
accomplishment was that of the
Pirate team itself that came away
with their third straight victory.
They put that streak on the line
tonight against Old Dominion in
The Aiken game looked to be
all-Mack from the beginning as
he was frequently mismatched
with 5'9" Zach Norris. Mack
scored the teams first eight points
to spot the Bucs a four point lead.
Following another fantastic Roger
Carr inside shot Mack connected
on a three point play and hit two
more baskets to make it 19-8 with
1356 to go in the first half.
The Bucs stretched it out to a
19 point lead at 49-30 and the
game was no longer in question.
Mack had 27 first half points
and talksof a 50 point game sifted
through the home crowd.
Hill, Mack, and Herb Krusen

if? Whitaker performs in big
win over UNC - Wilmington
Staff Writer
With piaymaking guards Wal-
ter Moseley and Don Whitaker
having fevers of over 100 degrees
the Pirates invaded UNC-Wil-
mington's brand new facilities
last Thursday night and abused
the Seahawks 90-85 to avenge an
early season upset loss.
The hero of the game was Don
Whitaker. The ball hawking
senior stabilized the Pirate attack
and had only two turnovers for
the entire game.
"Walter (Moseley) and Don
(Whitaker) both had high
fevers said Pirate mentor Larry
Gillman. "I had little choice, but
Whitaker wanted to play"
Adding even more pressure to
the situation was that it was
Whitaker's first start this season.
As the game started, the
revenge factor seemed to carry
the Bucs and Whitaker.
"Anytime I'm supposed to
start I feel better joked Whit-
aker. "But really, I felt weak and
my throat was sore Whitaker
was foroed to shout floor signals
over the arrogant fans It proved
a little more than I'm used to
admitted Whitaker.
Whitaker's performance was
typical of ECU playing all through
the game. The Bucs ran up as
much as a fourteen point lead and
led at the half 45-35.
Oliver Mack was his flamboy-
ant self scoring 34 points and
dishing out numerous assists, a
big difference from the first game
when he was held to eight total
Herb Gray added 26 and Greg
Cornelius 21 as ECU won brag-
ging rights for another year.
Coach Larry Gillman said

he could count on Don Whitaker

Seahawks of UNG-W have proven
tym right.
Dr. Pepper Spree
This week the student body of ECU will have a great opportunity to
see some excellent women's basketball.
This Wednesday night the Lady Pirates will be matched against the
2nd ranked Wdfpack of N.C. State.
Then on Saturday night the Lady Pirates will return to Minges
Coliseum to meet the rival Tar Heels of UNC.
Both games effect the pairing fa the state's Division I
tournament which will be held here in Greenville. The Pirates are
currently in 2nd place behind N.C. State and just ahead of UNC.
To add to the excitement of the excellent games the Roberson
Beverage Company will be presenting "The Dr. Pepper Spree
What the spree involves is a concentrated effat by ECU'S

Anyone who attended the ECU-USC-Aiken game got a real treat.
The treat of oourse was Oliver Mack's recad breaking 47 point
Mack broke two ECU recads in the game. He broke Jim Medlin's
record of 42 points set back in 1969-70. He also broke the recad fa
most baskets oonnected on from the flea with 19 of 26.
Mack is truly deserving of All-American status this year. He has
proven to everyone that he is a first class basketball player.
What a difference a week makes. A few weeks ago the Pirates were
losing to Richmond and now they have suddenly started showing what
they are capable of.
Fa the first time in three years the Pirates woi three games in a
row. They also beat a team that had routed them at home earlier in the
year (UNCW).
A big facta in those three wins was the improved play of Herb
Gray, Greg Caneliusand Dai Whitaker.
There is sonething about mid-season that seems to bring out the
best in Herb Gray. Last year Herb had his best play at that time and
again this year the stay is true.
Greg Canelius is probably playing his best basketball ever. Even
though nagged by a knee injury Greg has been a bull on the boards
while adding to the soaring situation. Greg is now a vital part of the
ECU attack. He is probably the most improved playa on the team this
year and win or lose, he always gives 100 on the court.
Don Whitaker who took over at UNC-W fa a sick Walta Moseley
showed real poise and senia leadaship in that big win down in
His play was consistent andoonsidering he was up against one of the
fast handed Martin twins his ball handling was excellent also.
Bill Cain announced the 1978 ECU Football schedule last week. The
schedule listed below will feature five home games in the new 35,000
seat Ficklen stadium as.well as a trip to the Oyster bowl to take on the
University of Richmond.
Arch rivals N.C. State and UNC-CH will be back to back adding to
the toughness of the schedule. The Pirates will also visit Southern
Mississippi and Southwestern Louisiana.

This year will mark Little's
second season as head coach of
the Pirates.
"The fans will see a "78"
squad that will be aggresive, that
will hustle, and give no less than
i 100 per oent said Coach Little.
Judging from the returning
personnel, it is assumed that his
statement will hold true. The
Pirates will have five seniors, four
juniors, six sophomores, and
eleven freshmen this year.
The Pirates have been practic-
ing since January 24.
"We're one of few teams in
the state to start this early with
outdoor workouts said Little.
"We lack the facilities for a
productive indoor session
The Pirates have held inter-
squad scrimmages regularly.
"This year our second unit is
so strong that we feel an outside
scrimmage is unnessessary
said Coach Little.
Concerning the pitching de-
partment this year, the Pirates
should fair well.
"We're planning to run a
four-man rotation on them this
season said Little. "We have
six or seven men who can throw
The returning Micky Britt

The area of hitting is perhaps
Coach Little's only ooncern.
"We have been hitting well in
practice and hope to continue on
itno the season said Little.
Consistent good hitting is vital to
any teams success, he said.
The Pirates must hit well to
defeat teams such as South
Carolina, Clemson, and Va. Tech.
These excellent teams are only a
few on the rugged 47 game
Nearly half of the games on
the '78 schedule will be played at
"I arranged these night
games in anticipation that the
students oould better support
their team said Little. "An
independent must play a strong
schedule and win to get a regional
Student support oould prove
to be an important factor at the
games this year, according to
Coach Little, who has played
in the big time with such clubs as
the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston
Astros, and Detroit Tigers, is a
confident team leader. The ener-
getic Little is planning to delegate
responsibility to his staff.
"Associate Coach Hal Baird
will primarily be in charge of the
pitcher said Little. Coach Baird
was previously a team member of
the Kansas City Royals.
"Assistants Tony Guzzo and
Gary Overton will round out the
Pirate staff.
"The two will have individual
practice and game responsibili-
ties said Little.
When questioned about his
goals, Coach Little replied, "I
would like to be a consistant
winner and get a reional bid.
"These goals are within
