Killer dope
Since 1975, the Mexican government, with aid
from the US government has been spraying
marijuana fields with the deadly herbicide paraquat.
Apparently unable to convince its citizens that
marijuana is dangerous the United States government
has embarked on a reckless campaign of poisoning a
substance regularly used by approximately 15-20
million people in this country.
Although there is disagreement in scientific
circles as to just how toxic paraquat is when
consumed through various methods (such as
inhaling ingesting, or burning), HEW Secretary
Joseph Califano warned that contaminated marijuana
could lead irreverisbie lung damage for regular and
heavy users, and, conceivably fa other users ps wrII.
As if to emphasize their disregard tor the heath of
a sizeable portion of the populace, HEW accompani-
ed its warning withan announcement that it will stop
researching possible paraquat heath risks.
And accordinq to the May 18 edition of Rolling
Stone, spraying nas already resumed in Mexioo,
posbibly more widespread than ever before.
The feeling among marijuana users runs from
mild concern to unabashed panic .
Although no confirmed cases of paraquat
poisoning have been reported, heavy users should be
aware of the symptoms, which include coughing up
blood, cyanosis (blue, gray, or dark purple
discoloration of skin), absence of kidney function,
and jaundice.
No reliable home test kit has yet been developed
to detect the chemical, but users may send suspicious
samples to Street Pharmacologist, a state supported
laboratory in Florida.
Samples may be submitted according to the
following procedures:
1) Wrap one tabelspoon of marijuana in plastic in
an envelope along with a) $5 to cover the cost of
anaysis (this service is free to samples mailed from
Flaida); b) specify the type of test torun: drug content
a herbicide c) note oontent and aigin of the sample.
2) Make up and assign the sample a random five
digit number oie letter of alphabet, and your state
oode. (example: NC 49720-K) This is used fa
identification to obtain test results.
Remember to both enclose the identification oode
and to retain your own copy.
3) Mark the outside of the envelope "HAND
4) Mail the envelope to Street Pharmacologist
P.O. Box 610233 Nath Miami Fla. 33161.
5) approximately 10 days after postage, results
may be obtained by telephoning 305-446-3585 in the
afternoon hours.

Paraquat poses health hazard to pot smokers
News Editor
The Secretary of HEW issued
a statement last March warning
nationwide users of marijuana
that irreversible lung damage
may result from the inhalation of
Paraquat contaminated marijuan-
HEW Secretary Joseph Cali-
fano warned that marijuana con-
taminated with the herbicide
Paraquat could cause permanent
lung damage for regular and
heavy users of marijuana.
The Secretary issued the
warning based on preliminary
studies conducted by the National
Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
The NIDA reports that 60
percent of the marijuana in this
country is shipped from Mexioo.
In chemical analyses of 63
marijuana samples confiscated in
the southwestern U.S. by the
Drug Eforcement Administration
from October of I976 to late I977.
the NIDA found 13 samples (21
percent) to be contaminated with
Paraquat with an average level of
450 parts per million (ppm).
The maximum level of
contamination that is permitted
for domestic use is 0.005 ppm,
which is far below the levels
found in the marijuana samples
The NIDA reports that "a
rough estimate can be made that
an individual who smokes three to
five marijuana cigarettes a day
could suffer measurable lung
impairment after several months
if the marijuana contained a least
450 parts per million
The report also cautions,
however, there could also be risk
of lung damage for individuals
who use marinuana less often and
in smaller amounts.
The report also said that
although ingestion of a concen-
trated solution of Paraquat will
cause toxic effects, eating Para-
quat contaminated marijuana ap-
pears to present no significant
health hazard.
Paraquat is a herbicide which
is sprayed on marijuana plants in
Mexioo to destay them under a
program operated and funded by
the Mexican government.
In 1975 the U.S. gave Mexioo
$40 million to buy aircraft and to
train personnel to spray herbi-
cides on poppy fields. The
Mexicans, on their own initiative,
went on to spray marijuana fields.
In 1977, about 22,000 acres of
poppies and 9,500 acres of
marijuana plants were destroyed
by the spraying in Mexioo.
The contaminated marijuana,
which may be disguised for street

marijuana, is not easily detected.
The Paraquat, which is spray-
ed from the air, sticks to the
leaves of the Cannabis plant,
drying them out through a heat
reaction with the leaves' surface.
The plant must sit in the bright
sunlight fa several days befae
the plant is destroyed.
The deteriaat ion stops after
the plant is harvested and press-
ed into bricks fa shipment. Once
harvested, the Paraquat remains
largely intact on the plant. The
result is that oontaminated mari-
juana is mixed into the 3,000 tons
of Mexican pot smuggled annual-
ly into the U.S.
A mimeographed sheet en-
titled "Paraquat Fact Sheet" has
been approved and run off by the
ECU Drug Abuse Control center
and will be distributed to summer
school students, acoading to
James Mai lay, dean of men.
Lionel Kendrick, head of the
ECU Drug Abuse Control and
Dennis Tromba, an ECU psychol-
oqy student, waked together to .
write and produce the sheet.
Kendrick said that the main
purpose of the sheet was to clarify
the facts about Paraquat because
of misinfamatioi and rumor.
The sheet explains the facts
about Paraquat and the possible
effect of smoking oontaminated
marijuana acoading to the NIDA

ECU Hunger Coalition's walk raises $1,000
Over $1,000 was raised in the
ECU Hunger Coalition's seventh
annual Walk for Development last
May 13 according to Patrick
O'Neill, one of the walk's coor-
About 80 persons completed
the 20 kilometer (12.5 mile)
course. They ranged in age from 7
to 66 years old.
Wlakers were treated to
doughnuts, Gatorade, soda, and
other snacks at several check-
points, in addition to a free lunch
at the Baptist Student Union.
The lunch was provided by
several local businesses, church
groups, and women's organiza-
"In the last six years, the walk
has raised $15,000. Fifty per cent
of the money we earn is spent on
local projects to combat hunger,
and the other half goes for
international projects O'Neill
One such project is the
Campus Minister's Emergency
Kitchen Fund, which gives pots,
pans, food, baby bottle steriliz-
ers, and nutritional advioe to the
area's poor.
This year's project is the
International Caribbean Hunger
The coalition also recently
sponsored a demonstration of
nutritionally balanced meals in
Winterville. A group of ECU
home economics students prepar-
ed the meals and spoke on good
"A lot of people in the United
States aren't really starving, but
they're malnourished because
they don't know how to properly
feed themselves O'Neill said.
"Globally, approximately 800
million people go to bed hungry
every night. That's roughly four
times the population of the United
O'Neill said the goal of the
coalition is to raise the commu-
nity's consciousness and make
the community aware of the
plight of a large segment of the
world's population.
"So far this year, we have had
two fasts to raise consciousness,
and each week we have a member
with a sign board on campus
displaying facts on world hunger.
"Every week we change the
sign he said.
According to O'Neill, third
world people are shocked that
Americans feed grain to cattle.
"I onoe met a missionary to
Tanzania who had returned to the
U.S. for several years and who
was planning togo back to Africa.
"i asked him what the Tan-
zanians considered wealth, and
what was their idea of being rich.
And he siad that they could not
conceive of feeding grain to
cattle. They thought Americans
must be incredibly wealthy to be
able to afford to do that.
According to the Oxford Com-
mittee for Famine Relief, a group
based in Boston, 76 percent of all
protein in the U.S. goes toward
feeding livestock.
One pound of beef and a
pound of grain have the same
amount of protein, but it takes
anywhere from eight to 21 pounds
of grain to produoe one pound of
beef, according to the committee.
"Were not saying to stop
eating beef, but we should realize
that it's a luxury. Maybe give it
up one night a week or some-
thing. Alooholic beverages are
also big users of grain
The Coalition has travelled
throughout North Carolina to
speak and show films on hunger
and starvation. The coalition's
programs are available to any

Paraquat contamination spurs pot testing
Continued from p. 6
Dennis Tromba, a student
who worked on the fact sheet, put
together another two-page leaflet
which advises students how and
where to send marijuana samples
to be tested and plans to
distribute the leaflet to students
Kendrick said that they did
not feel that they oould publish
such information on the testing
centers because they felt they
could not legally distribute any-
thing condoning the use of an
illegal substance.
Street Pharmacologist, a test-
ing center in Miami, Florida,
reports that only 4 out of 1,000
samples they had received from
the East Coast were found to
contain any Paraquat. All of the
four contaminated samples were
from Florida.
The State Bureau of Investiga-
tion in Raleigh told FOUNTAIN-
HEAD that they had no labs
within the state that keep statisti-
cal data on Paraquat or that even
tested for it.
A spokesman from Street
Pharmocologist .aid that they are
testing commeraal home testing
kits but they have not found any
to be reliable.
A REAL Crisis Information
center spokesman said that they
were unaware of home testing
kits being sold in the Greenville
area but that they were aware
through street sources that a
person could send off for one.
The National Organization for
the Reform of Marijuana Laws
(NORML) has filed suit in District
Court in Washington, D.C. in an
effort to halt U.S. support and

The suit charges that four
government agencies-Depart-

to prepare an Environmental
Impact Statement fa the spraying

Trends Editor
The transition from adolle-
scent to adult, the oonfrontive
experiences that mark maturity,
and the presence of a lifestyle
which flows from true events, are
the primary ingredients for a
special film that writer-director
John Milius has been saving for
this precise moment.
"Big Wednesday an A-

changes which occured during
The story evolves from the
Milius past, the Southern Califor-
nia beach atmosphere, and the
personalities who symbolized

It is an accurate representa-

of personal involvement, years
that Milius spent riding waves in
California at places like Malibu,
and in Hawaii at Sunset Beach on
Oahu's North Shore.

The film deals directly with
those pivotal moments which
made the 1960's unique, particu-
larly with respect to a system of
val ues that are close to the oore of
John Milius' creative sensibili-
ties. The script, written with
friend and fellow surfer Dennis
Asberg, emphasizes the need for
a code of honor, for loyalty, and
for respect.
It is a strong, romantic
concept, which brings the film to
its awesome climax, a day unlike

Masochist and who is the most
uninhibited of the three surfers.
A native of Oklahoma whose
assert iveness and spontaneous
energy are the delight of his
friends, Leroy is an especially
appropriate role for Busey, who
was born in Goose Creek, Texas,
and is making his fourth film.
His first, "The Gumball
Rally was followed by "A Star

Patti D'Arbanville plays Sally,
a girl who comes to the beach
area from Chicago and is quickly

until she was six years old.
She has appeared in "Mid-

films in England and France.
" Big Wednesday" is her first

Hale, who is actually William
Katt'smother, playing his mother
in the film, and screenplay
co-author Dennis Asberg, making
his acting debut as a con-artist
named Slick.
Surfing is the: 'hread of
continuity in "Big Wednesday"
and it is an element in the film
which has received John Milius'
devoted attention
This is the first feature which
takes surfing seriously. It is
non-exploitative in this respect,
giving the sport an almost
documentary reverence.
Two stars of the film.
Jan-Michael Vincent and William

The Suzuki Ensemble, which
includes young musicians who
began instruction in ECU's
annual String Camp and continu-

School of Music, will perform the
Suzuki literature familiar to many
Greenville parents.
These pieces begin with
"Twinkle, Twinkle" and range
through Book Two of the Suzuki

sensationalist journalism in area
Staff Writer
Might as well start it off with a
Although this stay is not
original�it comes from a piece by
Dennis Rogers in the News and
Observer - I am simply ripping it
off as advised.
Fa those of you that haven't
seen it, the piece is at least wath
a shot:
A young couple was having a
verbal disagreement one morn-
ing. A t first their words were hot
and heavy, and then a silence fell
that was thick as brick. They were
boiling over from their spat and
stormed through the house, hut-
find and puffing, and showing
their anger by stomping around
and slamming doors. Then the
lady had trouble with the zipper
in the back of her dress.
After walking over to her
husband e stopped and point-
ed to the hung zipper. He
grabbed the zipper tab, slid it
quickly to the top, but then
realized a way to vent his anger.
Up and down the zipper went
until it became irrevocably
caught. Mad enough already, the
lady really blew a fuse when the
husband had to cut and ruin the
dress to get her out.
The lady was too mad now to
put into words. She thought and
thought all day on how to get her
revenge on smart-alecky hubby.
But the chance came to her when
she arrived home that evening.
There on the garage floor, amid
the sounds of mechanical work,
and sticking out from under the
family car, was a pair of legs
wearing pants.
She quickly saw the opportun-
ity, bent down and threw the
pants zipper back and forth
several times. She stopped, gig-
gling to herself over her victory
and lightly strolled into the
When she got to the kitchen,
she halted unbelieving that there
at the table sat her husband. She
took a few moments to compose
herself, and then sputtered,
"Who is that under the car?"
"Oh, that's Bill. He came to
help out with the muffler her
husband answered. She then let
on what had happened.
The hubby, but not wife,
thought it was funny. He figured
the best thing to do would be to
go and explain to Bill why wife
was toying with his fly. They went
to the garage and found Bill's
legs still projecting under the car.
"Bill'7 said the husband.
"Biir" echoed the lady, with
a tinge of nervousness.
Still nothing.
The two slowly pulled Bill out
from under the car. He was
knocked cold and had a nice-sized
gash on his forehead, because of
his start to see who was fooling
with his fly.
Even Bill thought it was
funny, once the knot on his head
had gone down. Guess they all
learned how to put a little zip into
a family fight.
Thank you, Dennis.

quality in athletic funding
Sports Editor
On May 2 a formal letter of
grievances was sent to Dr. Leo
Jenkins by a committee repres-
enting ECU's women athletes.
In the letter was spelled out a
number of areas which the
women athletes feel that they do
not receive equal treatment with
the male athletes here at ECU.
The letter calls fa a
hearing to be held some time this
week for the discussion of the
The following is the letter that
was sent to Dr. Jenkins by the
students representing the female
Dear Sir:
Having exhausted those chan-
nels open informally to students,
we feel it is our responsibility to
submit a formal grievance to the
administration at ECU. This
grievanoe pertains to the discrim-
inatory administration and inad-
equate funding of those sports
programs provided to women
students. In order to insure that
equal opportinuty exists in both
the oonduct to the women's
athletic programs and the prov-
ision of athletic scholarships fa
women athletes, we request a
famal hearing to indicate and
oarect any violations of Title IX
of the Education Amendments
Act of 1972. Some of the factas
that will be considered in deter-
mining the extent to this alleged
discrimination include: (1) pro-
vision to supplies and equipment;
(2) game and practice schedules;
(3) travel and per diem allowance;
(4) locker rooms, practice, and
competitive facilities; (4) assign-
ment and pay of the coaches; (6)
publicity and (7) athletic scholar-
Our nomination fa the first
member of the hearing oommittee
will be Sonny McLawhan, Jr.
Attaney at Law. We request that
preparation fa the hearing be
initiated and that if at all possible
be held the week of May 22,1978.
The five signees of the letter
are Donna Pendley, Debby
Newby, Jill Vaughn,Mike Healy,
and April Ross.
The outcome of this hearing
will no doubt have an effect on
Pirate athletics and could have an
effect on the athletic programs of
the other colleges and universit-
ies in the state and maybe the
NCAA itself.
In speaking with Pirate Ath-
letic Directa Bill Cain a few
weeks ago anaher side of the
issue was brought into play. Cain
stated that the ECU was third in
the state behind NC State and
UNC-Ch in total monies budgeted
to women athletics. He also
pointed out that the reason that
there was not as much money
given to women athletics at ECU
as there was at State and Carolina
was because those schools taal
budgets are larger than ECU'S.
Cain did feel that the percent-
age of the tola! budget given to
the women athletics was compar-
ative with any aher institution in
the state.
With the first hearing sched-
uled some time this week the next
few years should give all the
parties involved in these griev-
ances an idea of what the future
may hold fa ECU athletics, both
women'sand men's.
PIRATE AD Bill Cain and Dr. Leo Jenkins are to meet with the
Grevience oommittee some time this week.

This is the first in a weekly

This weeks repot is on the
Univosity of Richmonds Spidos.
Next week we will scout the
Wdfpack of NC State.
Last years Richmond team
had to be a real disappointment to
the Spido faithful.
Although the Spiders had one
of the toughest .schedules any-
wfctPe most people had predided
at least a 6-5 mark fo Richmond.
Such was not the,case how
ever as a young Richmond team
was shut out in its first two games
and went on to have one of the
wast seasons in Richmond's long
football histay.

whopping 354.1 yards pa game
in total offense. Meanwhile the
Richmond offense managed 239.6
total yards pa game. Opponents
avoaged 26.6 points pa game
and the Spidos only avoaged
11.7 pa outing.
The Richmond fans feel how-
evo that thoe is light at the end
of the tunnel. Near the end of last
season the Spidos began to come
into thoe and play some heads up
football. Their best Isle season
effort was a 24-27 loss to Hall to

City Stadium in Richmond.

should be an improved team.

Spider linebacking brigade.
Richmonds large defensive
line will return intact this season
and should be vastly improved.
The line includes Ken Gilliam,
who accounted fa 112 tackles
from his middle guard position

Probably the weakest area of
the entire Richmond team is the
receiving caps. Tight ends Tim

Earline Leggett named to new post
It has
not been uncommon for ECU to
come forth with several firsts in
the last few years, particpating as
regards the Pirates' athletic pro-
gram. This week, another first
has taken place, not only for the
school but fa the state as well.
And maybe fa the entire country.
Earline Leggett, business
manager fa athletics since 1972,
was named this week as Assistant
Athletic Directa fa Business.
This marks the first time a wanan
at ECU, a at any school within
the state, has been named to the
position of an assistant athletic
directa fa an entire athletic
While the significance of a
female being named to such a
position is obvious, Leggett down
plays that element of the promo-
"I do not think equal rights a
Title IX had anything to do with
my getting this position said
Leggett. "But I do feel that this
proves a woman can move into
this type position with hard work
and a desire to want it bad
enough It does prove it can be
acheived as a woman
"I'm just extremely honaed
and very grateful fa the oppat-
unity given to me back in 1972 by
Coach Stas (late athletic directa
Clarence Stasavich) and Mr.
Mcore (Clifton G. Moae, ECU
Vice Chancella fa Business
Affairs;)when they had confi-
dence in me to name me business
A non-college graduate and
the athletic department employee
with most longevity, Leggett's
background paints the picture of
success from hard work and
loyalty. Her motto in life clearly is
hard work and loyalty.
In 1963, Leggett joined the
athletic staff as personal secre-
tary to Stasavich. But from the
beginning, it was mae than just
being a secretary to Stasavich.
Her work included keeping the
books, writing grants-in-aid,
equipment aders just the
work of a business
But it was na until 1970 that
a business managers position was
even aeated at ECU. Bill Cain,
current athletic directa, received
that position. In 1972, Cain was
promoted to assistant athletic
directa and Leggett finally rec-
eived a title appropriate fa her
job over the years, business
manager fa athletics.
A Williamstoi native, Leggett
attended Farm Life High School
(d ass of 1950). From there, it was
right to wak at the din Mathie-
son Cap. in Williamstoi. Her
duties included secretary to the
president, accounting, inventay
and adering of irrigation equip-
ment and rther assated items.
Fa 12 years she waked at Olin
During her first four a five
years waking, Leggett also at-
tended night school at Baker
Business School in Greenville,
graduating around 1956.
"You know. I don't really feel
any different about this position
a my responsibilities than I did
befoe related Leggett. "I feel I
was as dedicated years ago to the
job as I am now, and I feel I would
have continued to wok and strive
to do the best job possible without
the new title. But it is a nice
reward fa the laig years and
hours put in
Was it equal rights and a
Title IX that faced such a move
by the ECU athletic dept?
" No, the fact that M s. Leggett
was a female never came into play
in this decision explained
athletic directa Bill Cain. "Ms.
Leggett was in a position and had
done an outstanding job there,
and we all felt she deserved this
promotion. It was incidental that
she was a female.
"Firther, this is just the
beginnng of a series of moves to
develop and strengthen our over-
all athletic administrative staff.

Fa a woman that's making
athletic history, it's interesting to

Greensboro Daily News quoted
Leggett in a column as saying:
When I came here, I had seen
twofoaball games in my life, one
high school and one over here at
ECU when I visited a girl friend.
That game I had to at out in the
rain and I thought it was terrible.
"But since then I've seen
football games in rain and snow

reoad during his prep career and
finished with a 35-3 slate during
his senia year.
Twigg placed first in the
regional and sectional tourna-
ment last year, took third in the
districtsand finished fourth in the
state championship.
"Mark's a tough canpetita
and certainly a blue-chip pros-
pect said Hill. "He stands an
excellent chance to start in the
134 pound weight class since Paul
Osman has graduated
Robinson, a 126 pounder,
prepped at Vestal High School
where he finished his senia year
with a 28-4 reoad while leading
his team to a perfect 14-0 season.
Robinson, also a four year
letterman put together an 80-22
overall reoad during his prep
career and was nominated as a
high school all-America.
"Thomas could also start fa us
next season noted Hill.
"We've had very little consisten-

Pirates i
ECU foot-
bal I has produced 50 wins and but
16 losses over the last six years,
ranking the Pirates as one of the
nation's 15 winningest Division I
teams over that period. There is
very little reason to believe that
this should change for the worse
during the 1978 season.
Fourteen Pirate starters re-
turn from 1977, eight on defense
and six on offense, along with the
startng punter and snapper of last
year. From an experience stand-
point, this is the best situation
Pat Dye and staff have been in in
five years with surrounding fact-
ors are all very positive.
"I'm personally very excited
about this football team said
Dye. "We are all looking forward
to this year. I think the attitude,
enthusiasm and other such sur-
rounding factors are all very
"It is no secret that myself,
our coaches and our players were
very disappointed with the way
the season ended last year (8-3,
and a season ending loss to
William and Mary in the Oyster
Bowl). By the standards we have
tried to establish and reach at
East Carolina, 8-3 is not the type
season we want
Offensively, three of the four
leading ground gainers of 1977
return to bolster Dye's wishbone
attack. Junior fullback Theodore
Sutton (5'9 200) led the way last
year with 706 yards, junior
quarterback Leander Green (5'8"
175) had 546 yards in a shared
role as signal caller, and senior
all-America candidate Eddie -
Hicks(6 2 210) had 393 yards in
a year that the running backs saw
the ball very little. However, one
must consider Hicks' entire ca-
reer which shows 1586 yards in
229 carries for a phenomenal 6.9
yards per carry over three years!
"We should have the best
running backs yet said Dye.
"As for our quarterback situa-
tion, Leander is a sure winner.
We hope that someone else will
also establish himself as a winner
at quarterback. I would very
much like to have a shared role as
we did last year so successfully
with Leander and Jimmy Souther-
land. Also, we need some depth
at fullback to go with Sutton
The top candidates for the
other running back position are
Doug Banks (Soph 6'0 203), a
transfer from North Carolina that
sat out last year; speedstar
Anthony Collins (Soph 6'0
200), winner of the Outstanding
Freshman Award; and Sam Har-
rell (St 6'2 210), a strong
reserve the last two years that
could really break it open in 1978.
The offensive line will be the
biggest ever under Dye, as size
has never been an asset up front
before. Senior tackle Mitchell
Smith (6'3 250) and senior
guard Nelson Smith (61 240)
will be the leading forces. Re-
serves Mike Heywood (Sr3
235), Mitchell Johnston (Sr
6'3 245), Matt Mulholland(Sr
60 250), Wayne Inman (Jr
64 240) and James "Tootie"
Bobbins (Soph 65 240) will
battle fa the other starting tackle
and guard positions.
"Up front in the inter ia we
have experience except at center,
"noted Dye. "Our major pro-
blems on offense will be finding
winners at center, split end and
tight end. We have the material,
so it is just a matter of their
developing as we hope for
Jeff Hagans is the man at
center. The 6'1 235 junia
native of Greenville, played cen-
ter in a reserve role last year.
He's the biggest prospect Dye
has had fa the center spot since
caning to East Carolina. With
refined work, Hagans could prove
a solid man. Others that could
tarn a stroiger nucleus at center
are Flat Headley (Soph 6'3
235) and walkon Matt Jones
'(Soph 63 225).
With split end Terry Gallaher,
who broke virtually every ECU
passing mark, and tight end
Barry Johnson graudated, the
Pirates will not have veterans to
turn to this year in those vital
blocking positions of the wish-
Billy Flay Washington (Jr
6'1 195) will be moved from
reserve tight end to split end (4.4
speed), while Joe Godette (Jr
6'3 215) who started most of
last year at offense tackle, will
move to tight end. Split end help
will come from Vern Davenpat
(Jr 6'3 200) and Mike Haw-
kins (Soph 5'9 180) a running
back last year, being moved to
split end.
Defensively, only three chan-
ges will occur due to graduation.
Both linebackers, all-America -
Harold Randolph and Harold
Fat, alaig with free safety Steve
Hale, are gone. Otherwise, one
can look across a depth chart from
last year and count the remainder
of the starters as status quo.
Actually, a starter could be put in
every position, osat some point in
the 1977 season, two other
linebackers and anaher free
safety did start.
"We have the oppatunity to
have a fine defensive club in
1978 said Dye.
"There's mae experience -
back than ever befae. But I never
thought we were a good defensive
team at any time last year, so we
do have considerable work to
Three defensive ends, senia
all-America candidate Zack Val-
entine (6'2 210), junia John
Maris (61 195); and senla
Fred Chavisffj'? 2) have all
started over the last two years
and proven strong.
Junia Woodrow Stevenson
(6'5 230), senia Wayne Poole
(511 240), and junia Noah
Clark (6'2 225) have all started
during the last two seasons at
defensive tackle. Clark, however,
is being moved to nose guard this
season in ader to get all three of
the big men in the game at one
Senia Oliver Feltai (5'9
215), a two-year starta at nose
guard returns, but will be
battling with Clark fa the start-
ing nod.
In the secondary, senia all-
America candidate and two-year
starter Gerald Hall, an excellent
free and strong safety and punt
return specialist, heads a list of
three returning startera Caner-
backs Willie Holley (Jr 5'11
185) and Charlie Carter (Jr
5' 10 180) are the aher two.
A replacement must be found
fa graduated Steve Hale at free
safety. Hall likely will play at free
safety, with junia Ruffin McNeil
(5'11 190) the most likely
candidate fa the straig safety
position. Others to consider in the
secondary plans are James Freer
(Jr 5'8 175) and Thomas
McLaurin (Jr 5'11 175), both
reserves in the secondary like
McNeil last season, along with
Wayne Perry (Soph 6'1 185)
and Bill Pinkney (Soph 5'10
Fa the first time since the
arrival of Pat Dye, the linebacker
position will na be projected as a
maja strength However, that is;
na to say it will be a weakness.
Junia Mike Brewingtai (6'4

roles, replacing the graduated

Pirates dream of 1961 fast becoming reality
WHAT STARTED OUT as a dream in1961 is rapidly becoming the
states' fourth largest football stadium. Since the opening game
defeating Wake Forest in 1963 Ficklen Stadium has undergone many
changes. The original capacity of Ficklen was 17,000 in 1963. Later the
North side stands were built in 1968 to up the capacity to 20,000. In
1975 the new lighting system was added. Now in 1978 the stadium
expansion will bring the seating capacity to 35,000 seats. The dream of
Pirate fans has finally come true.
