Titl IX showdown -
Committee holds discrimination
News Editor
Students and university ottio
ials met before a three-member
committee at ECU Monday and
Tuesday afternoons to present
and hear witnesses to substant-
uate claims that ECU has failed to
comply with requirements to
eliminate discrimination in the
athletic program.
The hearing ended yesterday
with a granted 20-day continu-
ance and will reconvene on July 6.
Hearing committee members
are Dr. Artemus Kares, chair-
person, Dr. lone Ryan, chosen by
the students as their representat-
ive, and Dr. Robert Barnes,
university administration repres-
entative. The two oommittee
appointees chose the chairperson
as the required third member of
the hearing committee
The women's grievance com-
mittee was represented by a
Greenville attorney, Charles
McLawhorn, Jr. The university
was represented by Dick Farris,
assistant personnel director in
employee relations at ECU.
On May 2, a formal letter of
grievances was sent to Dr. Leo
Jenkins by a committee repres-
enting ECU'S women athletics.
The letter contained a number
of areas which the women ath-
letes felt were not receiving equal
treatment with male athletes at
ECU under Title IX.
Title IX of the Education
Amendments Act became law on
July 21, 1972, with implementa-
tion going into effect in July of
The hearing began Monday
with a reading of a section of Title
No per son in the United States
shall, on thr basis of sex, be
excluded from participating in, he
denied the benefit of, or be
subjected to discrimnation under
any education program or activity
receiving Federal financial assist-
In Monday's proceedings the
committee presented evidence to
substantuate the areas of alleged
discrimination: (1) provision of
equipment and supplies; (2)
scheduling of games and practice
time; (3) travel and per diem
allowance; (4) locker rooms,
practice, and competitive facili-
ties; (5) assignment and pay of
coaches; (6) publicity; and (7)
athletic scholarships.
Women athletes and coaches
testified Monday before a filled
assembly room in Mendenhall
Student Center on all the areas of
alleged discrimination.
Some of the most prominent
allegations of disaimination oc-
curred in the testimony concern-
ing the pay of coaches, travel and
per diem allowance, and athletic
Debby Newby, a former JV
women's basketball player, pre-
sented the evidence concerning
the pay of coaches.
According to Newby, statistics
showed that men's coaches'
salaries were substantially larger
than the women's except in track
and tennis.
The figures showed that last
year's gymnastic coach received
only a $100 supplement to her
teaching pay to coach the gym-
nastics team.
Stevie Chepko, the former
gymnastics coach, verified this
next on the stand. Chepko
resigned her teaching and coach-
ing position at ECU last spring
she said, because of the inade-
quate funding of women's athle-
Chepko also testified on travel
and per diem allowances.
She explained that since there
are only four gymnastics teams in
the state, most of their meets are
"Because of our travel allow-
ance we cannot go to some
meets she said. "Our travel
allowance last year was $900
"We spent one-third ot our
budget going to the Georgia
Invitational,and that was with
cutting costs as much as possible.
We went to a meet at Appalach-
ian this past year in which we had
to drive up and bach because we
couldn't affad to stay over-
night Chepko added.
Chepko oommented in an
interview later that women's
spats, such as gymnastics, could
generate revenue but that it took
money going into the program to
produce a program that would
generate that revenue.
"It'slikeavidousarde she
In the area of athletic scholar-
ships, figures were presented
that showed the amount of money
from the athletic budget that went
into the scholarship funds of
individual sports.
Figures showed that 282 male
athletes and 111 female athletes
participated in varsity spats
during 1977-78.

Five hundred part-time jobs terminated
� Staff Reporter
At least 500 ECU students
participating in the College Work-
Study Program found their part-
time jobs temporarily terminated
on April 20 because the Financial
Aid Office here ran short of
federal funds.
As a result of .the shortage,
those students were not permit-
ted to work the last ten days of
April and during the entire
months of May and June.
"We didn't have enough
money to go through another two
months said Robert M.
Boudreaux, financial aid officer.
"We raised their salaries Jan. 1 -
that's why we came up short

Boudreaux explained that an
increase in the federal minimum
hourly wage from $2.30 to $2.65
was authorized Nov. 1,1977 when
President Carter signed the fed-
eral minimum wage law (Public
Law 95-51). However, he
further explained that it did not
become effective until Jan. 1,

"We had something like

ing the 20 percent paid by this
institution he explained. "In
other words, dose to half-a-
million dollars.
Boudreaux stressed that the
Financial Aid office now knows
what the minimum hourly wage
increase will be next year and will
be able to take it into considera-
tion, whereas last year they were
unable to do so.
He also said the work-study
program would definitely begin
again July 1. And, he added the
program received "a healthy
increase" in its federal govern-
ment allocation for next year.
"Thefederal allocation for '78
and '79 will be $446,592 dollars
Boudreaux added.
Students participating in the
work-study program work about
10 hours each week. As a result,
their monthly paychecks average
around $120 dollars, about $440
dollars each semester.
The new wage law will
gradually increase federal hourly
wages until 1981, at which time
the minimum hourly wage will be

complaint of being ill-informed
about the policy change,
Vainright told INTERCESSOR
that the policy change was mailed

Women score TKO
Women have been discriminated against in many
fields throughout .history, particularly in intercol-
legiate athletics. Hopefully, the university adminis-
tration will take advantage of the opportunity
presented by the recent Title IX grievance (see story
page 1) and rectify this unfair situation.
The university is clearly in violation of Title IX by
evidence of the grossly disproportionate funding of
male and female athletic programs.
Aocording to the department of Institutional
Research, 55 percent of ECU students are female.
The athletic department's present budget states that
there are approximately 282 male athletes participat-
ing in nine sports, while there are approximately 111
female athletes participating in eight sports.
Yet, according to Stevie Chepko, former ECU
gymnastics coach, only four percent of the athletic
department's budget is devoted to female athletics;
the other 96 peroent, less administrative oosts, goes
to the men.
The university's attitude, or, more specifically,
the athletic department's attitude reflects the same
chauvinism as a Connecticut judge who, in a 1971
decision denying women the right to participate on a
cross country team, said "athletic competition builds
character in our boys. We do not need that kind of
character in our girls, the women of tomorrow
The question is no longer one of eoonomics, of
whether or not the athletic department can afford to
fund women's athletics; instead, the athletic
department has procrastinated until the final
deadline for compliance with Title IX is only a month
away. The question is now a legal issue.
Male athletes have six locker rooms, whereas
females have only one. One locker room in Minges
Coliseum in which women must prepare for
gymnastic practice (in Memorial Gym on the other
side of campus) and field hockey games (played in a
field 500 yards away, with a busy five-lane
thoroughfare between the two locations).
Last year, there was a total of $287,003 available
for men's scholarships; women were given $11,718
worth of crumbs.
There can be no rationalization for such officially
sanctioned sexism on the part of the athletic
department. It's time women got out of the kitchen
and onto the playing field.

School system shortchanges students, society
A ruling by a Hew York City
trial judge and an enquiry by a
prospective law school student
could bring considerable pressure
to bear on an already weakened
system of education in America,
both at the high school and
university levels.
Consider for a moment the
following two instances:
-Judge Irving Kirschenbaum
ruled last week in New York that
the New Yak City School Board
must either pay fa a famer
student's private education a
enroll him in a remedial program
by June 30. The oomplaint? The
student claimed that he is too
illiterate to oomplete a job
-A prospective law student
petitioned the admissions office
of a Nath Carolina law school to
reconsider her graduating aver-
age of 1968 in light of current
grading standards. She was told
that her average upon graduation
in 1968, around 2.75, would now
be equal to an average of 3.0, a
even higher, by today's standards
of grading.
These two examples, and one
dares not call them isolated,

serious illness in American educ-
ation: social promotioi and grade
Ten years ago, one would
have thought it rare indeed fa a
high school student to be unable
to fill out a job application, i.e. to
show evidence of basic literacy.

graduates are not, in fact, armed

So, how does someone grad-

possess the ability to fill out a job

no one answer. Our school lump

aiso embrace grade inflation.
Bah problems- social promo-
tion and grade inflation - imply a
shift in standards. If perfamance
of students matched the expectat-
ions of their teachers, then
neither of these problems would
thrive. Yet our society condones
an obvious decline in student
achievement - it is immediately
mae simple than attacking the
root causes.
Fatunately, there are indiv-
iduals and groups which do na
accept so readily these condit-
ions. Schools are concentrating
again on the three R's: these are
positive signs. Yet there is much
that needs to be done, fa the
ultimate losers in this situation
are the students who canna fill
out a job application and the
society which must deal with
illiterate youth.
It is quite possible that we are
long overdue fa an honest
re-evaluatiai of the role of
education in our society. I f we are
to diminish the meaning of a
certain diploma to the point of its
standing fa little a nahing, then
so be it - but stop the pretense.
Conversely, if we are able to
value education as a distinguish-
ing mark of civilization, we must
oome to grips with the fact that
such education has never been,
na can ever be. truly democratic.
True education in the traditional
sense of the wad, will never fit
the Big Mac mold.
It seems to be a matter of
philosophies - on the one hand
the cherished ideal of democracy,
the fervent desire to equalize
human oppatunity at all cost. On
the other hand we find the
imoompatable fact that we, as
individuals, are quite unequal in
our various abilities. And some-
where between those two ideas
lies our present educational sys-
tem - and somewhere else lies the

Critical essay redresses balance
between writer's worth; reputation
Assistant Trends Editor
Malcolm Cowley is, an out-
standing novelist, poet and cril
He graduated from Harvard in
1920 ano then joined the expatri-
ate American writers in Paris.
He belongs to the lost generat-
ion of Hemingway, Wolfe. Cum-
mings and William Faulkner
among others.
The Faulkner-Cowley File is a
collection of correspondence be-
tween the writers, along with
liberal reminiscing on Cowley's
part. Cowley first approached
Faulker with the intention of
writing an essay on him.
In 1944 Faulkner had yet to be
recognized, at least in America,
as the genius he was, and
Cowley wished to redress the
balance between Faulkner s
worth and his reputation with
a critical essay.
Thus began a long and unique
relationship between a distin-
guished critic and one of the
country's greatest unapproach-
able writers.
One of the most salient of
Faulkner s characteristics to arise
from the book is his love of
privacy. He turned down offers
from Life and Vogue to do stories
on him. (Life eventually did do a

one life to learn another one and

cycle about Yoknapatawpha

century's most astounding liter-

in a letter to Cowley.
In the 1920' s when it was chic
to move to Pans to begin a writing
career Faulkner never left home
except fa long stints of script-
writing in Hollywood.
During those times he would
work in Hollywood for six months

buted to the writing of his films,
sometimes served as his own
producer and constantly made
tiny cameo performancesas a
sort of trademark), but neverthe-
less he remains the epitome of the
pure professional movie director.
For thirty years his films
have been major Hollywood pro-

of a big studio. Generally too they
have been based on popular
novels and plays (i.e. Robert

misbehavior, and of the twenty-

International students diversify life at ECU
. . � i i , r i - ii.ii irrm omhaccu noronnnpl Rlflkp
Staff Writer
ECU, as it grows and matures
ds. a university, is constantly
being compared to otner somjois.
Many different factors are involv-
ed to equal our success in this
growth. Foreign students, with all
they have to offer East Carolina,
make up a very important part of
our university.
How do we compare with
other universities on the foreign
student issue? In this year's Fall
enrollment of 12,398, we have
only 19 "faeign students" at
ECU. There is, however, an
additional list of international
students who are permanent
residents a U.S. atizens who
were ban a have lived outside
the U.S.
Last year, approximately 574
international students attended
Nath Carolina State University,
while another 222 went to school
at the University of Nath
So what?' , you may ask. But
have you ever taken time to
seriously think about faeign
students? This reporter set out to
answer some questions about
faeign students earlier this
school year, and the knowledge
gained from the answers opened
up a new wald to me: an
exciting, faeign wald within the
wald we all know as ECU.
My first encounter with
faeign students was at the
university-owned International
House on Ninth Street. After
finding the house deserted on my
first two visits, I knocked loudly
one day around lunchtime to have
my banging answered by Ken
Aung-Din of Burma. Ken invited
me inside. He and another
foreign student, Bea-Sheue Lin
( oetter known as Alice) of
Idiwan, were having lunch in a
very international atmosphere. To
my amazement, they were actual-
ly eating spaghetti with chop-
M y desire to know mae about
these students from all over the
wald became greater with each
question I asked. My first quest-
ioi was why they chose to come to
Greenville, to ECU, of all places.
Ken, a senia in Biology, replied
that he had gone abroad to
American schools his entire
schoa-aged life, so he felt it was
natural that he continue his
education in the United States.
Alice chose ECU because she was
offered an assistantship a
schaarship here. She also notod
that the people here are friendly,
but added that she misses her
After answering my questions
(and asking me a few), Alice and
Ken suggested I go to Ayoock
Dam, where quite a few of
ECU's international students live.
Ron Scronce is the Ftesidence
Counsela at Ayoock, and waks a
great deal with faeign students.
Since l first talked with Scronoe
ID0U1 met students, he has
been appointed Coadinata of
lincniatiaial Student Affairs.
I ended up spending an entire
afternoon at Ayoock talking,
asking questions, and making
friends. This is when I really
began to understand what an
asset faeign students are to East
Carolina, and how much they
have to share. These students
have positive attitudes about
school and life. They give us an
opportunity to learn about faeign
cultures; and they give us a
chance to share our way of life,
too. Faeign students can,
indeed, be a learning experience;
and they can learn from us as we
learn from them.
The next faeign student I
met was James Chan fron Fng
Koig. James has an uncle in San
Francisco and an uncle in Rober-
sonville, N.C but he chose not to
go to San Francisco because he
hates big cities. James attended
high school at Hobgood
Academy, about 35 miles from
Greenville, befae caning to
Though he finds
Americans friendly, it was James
who first brought it to my
attention that international
students sometimes feel unwant-
ed and out of place. He naed that
a "hello" a a smile to a faeign
student could really brighten
their day, espeaaiiy one of those
homesick days.
Javier Blanco, from San Jose,
Costa Rica, was one of the next to
join our group. He is part of an
exchange student program be-
tween ECU and Nacional Univer-
sity in Heredia.
Javier said that he came here
to learn English (which he already
speaks as well as many
Americans) and to take "differ-
ent" courses, such as biology,
geography, and geology: Javier
attended Stonewall Jackson High
School of Manassass, Va. his
junia year in high school. He
would eventually like to attend
Nath Carolina State University
fa Faestry, and says that he
isn t honesick because he knows
that a diploma from the United
States is very impatant in his
native oountry.
I asked Javier of his impres-
sion of people here, and he
replied that they were young and
Javier waks in the Langauge
Labaatay in the Graham Build-
ing and says that he would like to
teach a speaal course in English
as a Faeign Language taught for
faeign students. Aocading to
Gary Ambert, Academic Advisa
fa faeign students, a course of
this type may be offered fa aedit
in the near future. In addition, the
Division of Continuing Education
will probably offer a similar
non-aedit oourse in English
which will be open to all members
of the community.
There is yet another side to
the faeiqn student issue. ECU
Chancellor Leo Jenkins keeps in
oaitact with faeign student
matters through his aid, Col.
Charles R. Blake.
Accading to Blake, faeign
students act as "missionaries"
fa the United States when they
return hone. These students will
be leaders, as will many of ECU's
American students. Many of our
current wald industrial and
political representatives develop-
ed international friendships dur-
ing faeign study. Hopefully,
lasting relationships can be fam-
ed bewteen our American and
faeign students that may affect
future international situations.
Blake also said that our successful
football season drew enough
attention to ECU to warrant calls
from embassy personnel. Blake
and Jenkins frequently visit
faeign embassies on ECU'S
behalf when in Washington to see
if faeign oountnes can use our
school fa educating their young
So, in ader to help ECU grow,
what can be done to improve our
international student program?
Colonel Blake has several
ideas fa improving our program,
and would like to see the program
invave 60 to 80 students instead
of the present 20.
Blake also feels that a system-
wide program should be waked
out so that ideas can be shared
and mae cohesiveness can be
obtained fa faeign student
programs within the entire
university system.

Texas-Arlington to give Pirates tough contest
Sports Editor
This is the fourth in a series of
scouting reports on ECU'S 1978
football opponents. Next week we
will scout the Indians of Williams
and Mary.
Not many people have heard
of the University of Texas-
Arlington here at ECU. In fact
most people just brush them off
as just another pushover team
that has come into to town for a
Saturday slaughter at the hands
of the Pirates.
Well my friends if you have
that attitude (most of my friends
seem to) then I hope to change
your minds about UTA
UTA is from the Southland
Conference. I hat is the $aire that
brought you another unknown
called Southwestern Louisiana.
As a matter of fact UTA tied USL
for second place in the Southland
Conference last year. In case you
havj forgotten USL handed the
Pirates one of meir three losses
last year In a 9-7 setback. With
this in mind it would be wise to
take UTA seriously.
UTA has some things in
common with ECU. For one thing
they are currently building a new
stadium. The stadium was sup-
pose to be ready by the 1979
season but it appears that it won't
be ready until 1980. The stadium
will hold 35,000 strong making
UTA a possible entry in the
NCAA's division 1-A if indeed the
NCAA is ever split.
But what about the team
The Movin Mavericks have
been steadly improving since they
joined the Southland Conference.
This year the Mavs are expected
to post their first winning season
since 1968.
The reason for their optimism
is the number of lettermen
returning from last year's tear.i
(38). The Mavs did lose 12
starters, five on offense and
seven on defense but there are
experienced lettermen to take
over the missing graduates as
well as coach Bud Elliott's best
freshman recruits ever.
On offense the baokfield re-
turns quarterback Roy Dewalt a
6'2" 205 pound junia. Dewalt
ran the Mav's wishbone with
authaity last year and will be a
dependable back this year. The
other returning starter in the
backfield is runningback Tony
Felder a 5' 10" sophomae from
San Antonio.
One hole that will be hard to
fill will be the fullback slot where
All-American Derrick Jensen has
At split end the return of Scott
Burt a 5'10" junia will keep what
air game there will be rolling.
The entire offensive line re-
turns this time around also.
Dewey Wakefield was the big
reason fa UTA's effective rush-
ing game last year and all SLC is
back fa his senia year. Not to be
overlooked are the other hold-
overs which include center Jack
Radfad, 6'2" 220 offensive tack-
le Andy Anding, 6'2" 225, John
Curry a 6'2" 220, Guard and Bill
Harris, 6'3" 250. Wakefield by
the way is the largest returning
starter at 6'3" 270 pounds!
On defense as mentioned
befae there are oily four return-
ing starters which has to cause
coach Elliott some ccncern. He
does feel however that there is
enough experience back to have a
solid defense.
A big reason to feel good
WCU defense returns 10 starters
Spats Edita
This year it appears that the
Western Carolina defense will be
tougher on the opposition than
ever befae. The reasons fa this
are varied.
First of all the Cats return no
less than ten defensive starters
of a unit that seemed to oome of
age late in the season. Secondly
most of the backup depth is back
also as the Cats only lost 3
The standouts on defense fa
the WCU Catamounts are Ty
Smith, middle guard, Thomas
Gunn. defensive back and Willie
Carpenter also a defensive back.
The Cats use a 5-2 defense as
does ECU.
So this coming season if there
is indeed strength in numbers
then WCU will have it made on
defense. Another reason head
coach Bob Waters should be
smiling is because almost all of
the backup depth will return.
All things said then the
Catamounts should have one of
the better defensive teams on the
ECU schedule this season and
maybe the best in the Southern
Conference this season.
about the Mav defense is Willie
Thomas. Thomas, twice named to
the All-SLC first team will be back
at the linebacker spot fa his
junia year at UTA. Thanas is
6'1" 195. Also returning at the
linebacker position is junia Rob
Micheisen who was honaable
mentiai All-SLC. Micheisen was
the leading tackier en the team
last year averaging 104 tackles
while Thomas was second with
The aher two returnees are
defensive end Tom Slaughter
6'3 235andGuy Davis6'0" 185.
On the specialty teams all
three specialty men return. They
are punter Richard Wilkinson,
punt returner Mike Guadagnolo,
and place kicker Tom Skauppa.
Guadagnolo by the way is 5'3"
In summing up the possibilit-
ies fa UTA this year it seems that
a la will depend oi how fast the
new defensive starters develop.
Also replacing a fullback like
Jensen will be a hard task. Still
things look pretty good fa the
Mavs and that elusive winning
season and a possible Southland
Conference Championship and
its berth to the Independence
Bowi could be within reach at

Ficklen Stadium expansion answers dreams
Sports Editor
This fall a dream come true
will be realized fa all fans of
Pirate football and Pirate athle-
tics. Ficklin Stadium will become
the facility that had always been
dreamed about. The stadium by
the home opener with Western
Carolina will hold 35,000 and
have one of the finest pressbox
facilities in the state of North
But what about this dream?
Just how did it start and when.
The story of Ficklin Stadium is the
story of ECU athletics over the
last fifteen years as well.
Ficklin Stadium became a goal
of then East Carolina College in
1961. It was at a meeting of the
Society of Buccaneers, (now
known as the Pirates' Club), in
October of that year that the new
president of the college Dr. Leo
W. Jenkins announced the origin-
al dream.
A fund raising drive was
launched to raise $200,000 to
build the stadium.
A year later $283,387 had
been raised and the original part
of Ficklin Stadium was built.
The original stadium that was
built contained the south stands,
the press box that was torn down
recently and an old lighting
system that was located on six
poles on the inner part of the
stadium. The visitor stands were
made up of old bleachers from the
Pirates' oldstadium located where
the School of Music building is
now. The capacity was about
The stadium was dedicated in
front of 17,000 fans on September
21, 1963 with East Carolina
defeating Wake Forest 20-10 in
the only meeting between the two
schools. Ironicaly Wake Forest
will return to the stadium in the
next few years to continue the
In 1968 Ficklin Stadium grew
again. It was that year that the
north side stands (student side)
were built raising the capacity to
The stadium experienced
more growth in 1975 when a new
lighting system was installed.
The system is a combination of
metallic and incandescent lights
on six 162 foot towers. The
system enabled the Pirates to
play a Thanksgiving night game
with Appalachian Sate in 1976
for the Pirates final Southern
Conference title. The system naa
a total cost of $450,000.
Also in 1975 the current
scoreboard replaced the original
Now in 1978 the dream is
finally being realized. A new press
box to rival any facility, expanded
seating to 35,000 and even more.
A new scoreboard wil" grace
Ficklin Stadium this season as
well. The scoreboard will be fully
computerized and have a mes-
sageboard readout. The score-
board itseld will be 42 feet long
and 18 feet high. It will stand 18
feet above the ground on two gold
poles. The scoreboard will be the
second largest that this company
has ever built being rivaled only
by a larger board at the Univer-
sity of Nebraska stadium.
A double messageboard will
also be placed in the 264 by-pass.
So today we find that the
dream of a few men has become
something which all fans of ECU
can be proud of. To Pirate fans
everywhere the results were
worth the wait.
