T.J. Payne reinstated as speaker
News Editor
SGA Attorney General Kieran
Shanahan ruled Monday that the
removal of Tommy Joe Payne as
speaker of the legislature was
unconstitutional and that Payne is
still legally the speaker of the

the case to the Review Board.
The legislature voted to re-
move Payne as speaker Feb. 6 on
a motion to reconsider the
election of the speaker made by
Tim Mertz, dam legislata.
On Feb. 13, Payne filed a
petition with the SGA attorney
general challenging the method
by which he was removed.
"Theonly lawful and constitu-
tional way Tommy could be
removed is through impeach-
ment, and no formal impeach-
ment charges have bene present-
ed said Shanahan.
According to the SGA consti-
tution, to impeach and remove
from office any elected student
official, a legislator must present
formal charges to the attaney
general, and, if these charges are
found to be in good order within
the limitsof the constitution, then
the attorney general shall form-
ally present the charges to the
Shanahan said that he re-
searched the SGA constitution,
SGA by-laws, and Robert's Rules
of Order to determine whether a
not the legislature had acted
lawfully in removing Payne as

Dean Rusk, former U.S. secre-
tary of state, spoke at the Atlantic
Coast Model United Nations
(Model UN) Security Council
gathering on campus last Friday.
The purpose of the three-day
meeting was to help students
increase their knowledge of world
a'ffairs by discussing current
issues related to international
peace and security.
"The students are very much
alive and well infamed concern-
ing world affairs Rusk said in a
news conference Friday.
"They have a wide range of
questions. I hope to help them
discover some questions they will
be facing in the next three
decades, although I don't claim to
have all the answers.
"I have become strongly
optimistic because of the confi-
dence I have in this generation of
students he said
During the conference, Rusk
gave his opinion on several
current issues including the Mid-
dle East peace settlement, the
Panama Canal treaties , and
Carter's faeign policy.
Rusk believes from past ex-
perience that the Panama Canal
treaties could be easily ratified
without the Senate drafting a
formal amendment.
"The only reason to have an
amendment is to have matters
clarified on paper Rusk said.
"The Senate could make an
understanding outside of a famal
amendment by listing what they
want clarified he said.
Rusk said the understanding
could be agreed upon by the
government of Panama.
This would avoid the govern-
ment holding a national plebiscite
on the treaty
While discussing the Middle
East, Rust said, "It is up to the
two nations involved to design a

Dr. John East, political science
professor; and Judith Donnaly,
faculty senate parliamentarian.
According to Shanahan,
Robert's Rules of Order states
that a motion to reconsider an act
of the legislature cannot be
applied to an elected official who
is present and does not decline.
"Tommy Joe Payne was pre-
sent and did not decline when he
was elected speaker in Septem-
ber. Therefore, he cannot be
removed by a motion to reconsi-
der " said Shanahan.
'n response to several legisla-
tors challenges to his authority,
Shanahan refered to the SGA
constitution which states: In all
questions of constitutional inter-
pretation and procedure, he (the
attaney general) shall issue
advisay opinions which shall
stand unless questioned befae
the Review Board.
Shanahan said that he does
not question the legislature's
reason fa removing Payne, but
that he does question the method
that was used.
Ricky Price, day legislata,
read patiois of his transcript
taken from tapes of the Jan. 31
Board of Trustees meeting.
Price claimed that Payne lied
to the legislature and implied that
Payne had violated the Hona
Code when he told the legislature

he did not represent them at the
board meeting.
"I was called a liar by Ricky
Price and Alonzo Newby and I've
played whipping boy to a body
that acts as a kangaroo court
said Payne.

general any aedibility and due
respect that his position rnan-

dates, then it is not a legislative
body but merely a group of
students out to better themselves
at the student's expense said
Payne said that he had no
qualms about defending himself
befae the Review Board and that
he was na afraid to defend his
actions should the legislature
choose to impeach him.
"I wish every student could
see our almighty legislature in
action because it definitely does
not represent the student body.
"I have never lied to the
legislature and I've tried to the
best of my abilities to be objective
and fair. I have done no wrong
said Payne.

termed the legislature's actions
ridiculous and hypocritical.

Fleming residents
upset over selection
Approximately 250 women students requested a
quiet dormitory, responding to a survey concerning
dorm visitation and noise within the dorms.
According to Carolyn Fulghum, dean of women,
Fleming Hall has been designated as the quiet
dormitory with a wing set aside for no visitation.
Understandably, many Fleming residents are
upset. Upperclassmen, having had the privilege of
choosing their rooms over freshmen, now have no
guarantee that they will get certain rooms in other
Why was Fleming dorm picked to be the quiet
dorm? Why not Jarvis or Cotten? Will the residents
actually have the quiet that they want when concerts
may be held on the mall this spring?
Fulghum said the decision of what dorm to choose
was a difficult one because she knew that no matter
which dorm was picked, its occupants would be
upset. However, the board of trustees agreed during
its last meeting to have the request filled.
Many other students are upset, because Fleming
Dam won the Chancellor's Cup in Intramurals last
year, according to Kay Belcher, the Intramural
representative for the dorm. She said the dam had
waked together and was "mae than just a dam
Several students, acoording to Fulghum, request-
ed an area of the dam fa no visitation, except in the
lobby. A wing of Fleming dam will be set up fa
these students.
Whether a not the selection was made with
consideratioi of the students is debatable, but these
students are out of luck with regard to choosing
their rooms and waking together as a dam.
ECU students prefer
old quarter system
An infamal poll appeared in FOUNTAINHEAD's
Thursday edition showing that ECU students prefer
the quarter system over the semester system. The
semester system was put into effect here Fall
Semester 1977.
Many students prefer the quarter system fa one
reasai, because they could squeeze in mae oourses
during one year than they can now on the semester
system. If a student failed a course during the fall a
winter quarter, fa example, he oould take it in the
spring (if offered) and pass it (hopefully) and still
Now, however, if a student wishes to repeat a
course during spring semester and it is not offered,
he has to delay graduation in ader to repeat the
course in the fall.
On the semester system, students have classes
fa a much longer period of time than on the quarter
system. Time drags by slowly, and students become
baed with their classes. On the quarter system,
though, time seemed to fly by, and befae one knew
it, it was time to take exams and begin another
The semester system does have its advantages,
though. Students only have to take exams twice a
year instead of three times a year. And they have to
buy books only twice a year instead of three times,
too. (Of course, new books had to be adered, and
the prices were higher, so price changes didn't make
much difference.)
Of course, ECU had to change to the semester
system because it was the only state school not on it.

Most ECU students may not
agree on the reason they played
their first game of backgammon,
but they usually do agree on one
thing. It will not be their last.
"Backgammon is an ancient
and fascinating game, a gambling
game which requires both skill
and luck, according to author Paul
Magriel, who wrote the how-to
book, "Backgammon
"With a single roll of thedioe,
a winning psoition can crumble or
a seemingly hop sitioncan
be slavagea, Magriel contin-
This aspect of the game may
well be responsible fa its grow-
ing popularity here at ECU.
Backgammon is a dice and
board game for two players. It
includes a board, two sets of 15
checkers, a pair of dice for each
player, and a betting cube.
Players move their checkers
(men) around the board aocording
to the roll of the dice. The first
player to get all of his checkers
around and off the board wins.
The game is drawing new fans
here on the ECU campus, accord-
ing to Mrs. Letha Summerlin,
supervisor of recreation at the

Summerlin said students are
now reqesting backgammon more
often than any other board game.
"I've been working since
the center opened (1974) and, just
since fall 1977, I've noticed
students have really been asking
for this game she said.
Mendenhall has seven back-
gammon tables.
The local appeal of the game
inspired Bob Glover, manager of

Participants play to win two

The tournament has been
relatively successful with a steady
growth in the number of players
and now averages about 18

may only be a fad, but it is hard to

Mah-Jongy craze of the 1920s.
The games are similar in that they

seems to be an intriguing idea to
most people.

Besides being easy to carry,
backgammon is also easy to learn.
Developing a winning strategy is
the hardest aspect of the game.
But this does not seem to
bother most people.
Axson Smith Jr manager of
the J.D. Dawson Wholesale Cat-
alog Co finds that it is hard to
keep the game in stock.
Last year's catalog had only
one model. This year's has three,
aocording to Smith.
Smith said Dawson's sold out
of all models during Christmas,
but has ordered more.
Most of the games are sold to
people under 30, aocording
to Smith.
The nicer leather and felt
modelsare priced at $34.97, while
other models can be found at
lower prices.
The Gazebo, E. 5th St has
also been selling the game at a

The use of the words 'Happy Hour' is a violation of the
ABC laws of North Carolina. Many student organizations have been
using the words in Flashes to publicize socials, rushes, and fund raisers.
When an organization uses these words in association with one of the local
bars, (example: Come to Blank Society's Happy Hour at the name of the bar) ,
the state ABC agents will 'write up' that bar for violation of the ABC laws.
Advertisers should also be wary of using
the words 'beer' and 'wine Advertisers and student
organizations may use the words 'alcoholic beverage'
in place of 'beer' or 'wine

"It isn't black and white.
"It has to be mostly specula-
tion said Morgan.
The key prophecy in the Bible,
according to Lindsey, is that the
Jewish people will become a
nation again. Israel, asof May 14,
1948, became a nation again.
According to Lindsey, after
the rebirth of Israel, the Bible
talks of a seven-year countdown
which wiil mark the return of
Jesus Christ and the destruction
of the world.
"This period will be marked
by the greatest devastation that
man has ever brought upon
himself said Lindsey. "Man
kind will be on the brink of
self-annihilation when Christ sud-
denly retruns to put an end to the
war of warscalied Armageddon
The Anti-Christ, believed by
many to be alive now, will be the
trigger of the seven-year count-
down, according to Lindsey. The
Anti-Christ will be a world leader
who at some point in the future
will sign a peace pact to end all
fighting in the world.
From the minute the pact is
signed, the countdown will begin,
As explained in the Bible, this
Anti-Chr:st will be praised by the
entire world for 1,260 days,
according to Lindsey.
The Anti-Christ will cause
people to swear allegianoetohim,
according to the Bible, and those
worshipping him will be given a
Several scientists who were
interviewed for the movie believe
this to have happened because of
the extensive number system
used today in the owrld. Such
numbers include Social Security
identification, and driver's lic-
ense numbers, and many others.
Lindsey claims the Anti-Christ
will be recognized and, according
to Revelations, the Anti-Christ's
number is 666.
The scientists interviewed for
the film are working now with
computers in attempt to find who
in the world today has the number
666, according to Lindsey. The
scientists enter famous names
into the computer which trans-
lates the names into the ancient
Hebrew spelling.
In Bibical times, when the
Hebrew spelling was used, the
letters also were the symbols for
numbers, as explained in the
movie. Using this technique,
scientists can calculate people's
names into a number. So far, no
person 666 has appeared.
A prophecy which is yet to be
fulfilled is the rebuilding of the
ancient temple of worship in
Israel. The Bible states that the
Temple must be built on the sopt
where it originally stood.
The probelm now, according
to Lindsey, is that the Dome of
the Rock, a holy place of the
Moslem, now occupies the exact
site of the temple. It is only
logical, aocording to Lindsey, that
the ancient temple of worship
cannot be rebuilt until the Dome
is moved.
According to Jewish religion,
as noted by Lindsey, the place of
worship is sacred and cannot be
moved from its location. Thus,
the Dome of the Rock can only be
moved by natural forces, such as
"Obstacle or no obstacle, it is
certain that the Temple will be
rebuilt. Prophecy demands it
said Lindsey.
There are several other signs
and prophecies in the Bible, some
of which have already been seen.
Natural catastrophes and the
practice of Satanism and witch-
craft are examples ated by
Lindsey. Both of these were cited
in the Bible as signs of the coming
of Christ.
"I make no daim of knowing
exactly when the world is gang to

have never taken to the hills with
my possessions and loved ones to

UNC and IMCSU drop Lady Pirates at home
Staff Writer
ECU lost to an awesome
NCSU Wednesday, February 15,
Then on Saturday night they
were topped again by UNC; this
time by only 3 points- 67-64.
On Wednesday night ooaoh
Bolton was oonoentrating on an
aggressive offense. But the
nationally ranked State took oom-
mand of the game very early.
They trailed only once in the
first seconds of the game when
Debbie Freeman hit the first
Then State's impressive Trudi
Lacey made two goals putting the
score at 4-2.
State soon had a ten point
edge on ECU which they held
through the entire first half.
With 6:14 to go State took
their biggest lead of the first half
with the score 30-14.
The Lady Pirates looked good
at the beginning of the second
half. They soon brought the point
spread down to eight.
Quickly State pulled ahead
even further. Lydia Rountree
looked tough with a long shot that
brought the point spread within
ten points again. State scored;
Rountree scored again. Once
again this brought ECU within
eight points.

ECU'S Swimming Team freshman Kevin Meisel sets
record while tricking UNC-Ch Tar Heels
The East Carolina swim team
recently captured its biggest win
ever, with a 61-52 thrashing of
intra-state rival North Carolina.
One of the most important
contributors fa the Pirates in the
victay was Winter Park, Fla.
native Kevin Meisel. Kevin's
father, Harry, is aquatics directa
at Rollins College.
As it turned out, Kevin played
a key role in what ECU swim
coach Ray Scharf later termed,
"possibly the turning point of the

freestyle. The favaite was ano-
ther Winter Park native, and

Nieman. Just befae the 1000 was
to get underway, Nieman came
up with a plan, and infamed
Coach Scharf of it. As the
swimmers got in their proper
lanes fa the event, the top UNC
swimmer, who was counting on
no wase than second plaos, was
in lane four. Nieman was in lane
five. Meisel was in lane seven.
Nieman suggested to Scharf that
they let Meisel go out as hard as
he could, while Nieman kept a
steady pace, just ahead of the Tar
Heel swimmer, who could not see
The idea waked to perfection.
Kevin won the 1000 yard freestyle
in a time of 9 35.39, setting a new
meet, pool, freshman and varsity
recad in the process. Meanwhile,
Nieman claimed second place, in
front of a surprised UNC swim-
mer, who never knew Meisel was
in front. After the race, the rest of
the team came up to the freshman
to congratulate him on fulfilling
his part of the plan.
"I didn't know about the idea
until after the race said a
surprised Meisel. "My previous
times were not really good
enough to be a favaite, but going
into the race, I felt strong
He still did not realize what
was going on, until the 300 yard
"That's when I discovered I
was in the lead he said. "I was
just out there swimming as hard
as I could. When we reached 600
yards, I still felt strong, and knew
it was all downhill from there
Meisel then stated the fact
that he didn't know he was close
to any recads until he had
When I found out he said,
"I went aazy. I thought I had
done a pretty good time, but I
never thought it was as fast as it

Kevin heard of East Carolina
aiginally through a couple of
ECU swimmers from his area,
Steve Ruedlinger and Barry
McCarthy. Plus, the Pirates come

their winter training program.

Pirates train just happens to be

Four recads in his first
varsity dual meet. That is a good
start fa anyate. At that rate,
Kevin might just follow in the
footsteps of older brother Steve,
who gained All-America status at
Flaida State University.

Pirate Sports Medicine plays an important role
Assistant Sports Editor
One of the most important, yet
perhaps least publicized sports
groups on campus is the Depart-
ment of Sports Medicine.
Headed by Rod Compton, in
his eighth year as director, the
Spats Medicine staff has a
competent trainer at every East
Carolina athletic event. It matters
not whether the event is on the
road or at home.
The main objective of the
program, according to assistant
director Jim Keating, is preven-
tion of injuries and quick know-
ledgable treatment of accidents
that occur.
Being a trainer has come a
long way from the days where you
just took a first aid class as
East Carolina has a full
athletic trainer's curriculum, the
only one in North Carolina
approved by the National Athletic
Trainers Association (NATA).
"I remember nee taking 15
pages of nntp on jst the knee
explaine Keating
Foliowniy lilt curnujlum and
passing it allows you to take the
certification exam by the NATA.
Keating proudly pointed out
that no one at ECU had ever
flunked the final exam.
The progran here at ECU was
initiated, as it now stands, four
years ago.
Graduate assistants from the
course are now assistants at
Michigan State, North Carolina
State, at some Washington, D.C.
area high schools and some have
contributed on here at East
Athletes here at ECU also
have at their disposal a team
physician, aeurdogist, neurolog-
ist, a bones and joint man, an
ears, nose and throat man, a
chest man, and everyone else
down to their grandma's feeding
them cough medicine.
As a result of this careful
preparation, East Carolina teams
always have a low injury rate.
While Keating is the assistant
director in charge of men's
sports, Liz White is the assistant
in charge of women's activities.
ECU also has a fine track record

Minnesota's Mike Thompson leads in current
balloting for East-West All-Star basketball game
