University stalls on grievances
i Editor
Last WedneaSay, theoommit-
tee appointed by former Chancel-
lor Leo Jenkins met to hear the
university's response to Title IX
grievances made against the
university on behalf of women's
athletics at ECU.
Attorney David Stephens,
spokesman for the
chancellor, indicated that due to
the time involved in the investiga-
tion and the changeover to the
administration of Dr. Brewer, the
university did not have a specific
response to the charges but would
by no later than August 10
present a package which "will be
a fair, a just, and equitable
package that legally is going to be
in oompliance with the HEW
On May 2, a committee
representing women's athletics at
ECU sent a formal letter of
grievances to then chancellor Leo
Jenkins. The grievances concern
ed alleged inequities for women's
athletics in areas such ,as equip-
ment, travel allowances, locker-
room, practice facilities, publicity
and atheltic scholarships.
Former chancellor Jenkins
then formed the oommittee,
which is comprised of: Dr.
Artemus Kares, chairperson; Dr.
lone Ryan, chosen by the
students as their representative;
and Dr. Robert Barnes, represen-
tative of the university adminis-
On June 12, the commit-
tee heard from the women's
grievance committee and their
attorney, Charles
McLawhorn, Jr. of Greenville. At
that time specific charges were
made against the university ath-
letic program. Wednesday's
meeting was to be the session at
which the university answered
the charges raised on June 12.
In his presentation before the
oommittee, Stevens, who is the
ECU Equal Opportunity official,
did not specifically refer to any of
the charges brought in the earlier
meeting. He declined to elaborate
in any way on the package to be
presented, except to repeatedly
insist that it would be fair and just
to all athletes.
After the meeting, Stevens
told FOUNTAINHEAD that the
package would be the result of a
look at the entire sports program
at ECU, and that the university is
now concerned with athletes, not
male or female, but athletes.
DebbyNewby.a former JV
basketball player and current
activist in the grievance proceed-
ing, told FOUNTAINHEAD that
while Stevens' statement did not
specify improvements in the
athletic program, she felt that
there was more cause for hope
now than previously concerning
parity with budget and program
aspects of women's athletics at
The hearing oommittee
voted at the end of Wednesday's
meeting to meet again in late
August after both parties to the
grievance had opportunity to

by the university. After some
questions concerning the possibi-
lity of changing or responding to
the university package in time to

ed to meet again August 30 at 2
p.m. The meeting is tentatively

CHANCELLOR BREWER PROMISES a complete re-evaruafcfj of the

whose name the Title IX grievance was brought against the university.
News Edita
The incidence of rape has
been "pretty high" this summer
in comparision toother summers,
according to Greenville Police
Chief E. Glenn Cannon. So far
during June and July, three rape
cases have been reported, as well
as a number of attempted rapes.
Two of the actual rape cases
remain unsolved.
Cannon attributes the higher
rates of summertime to inaeased
negligence on the part of victims.
"It'shot, and they leave their
windows open, they leave the
doas unlocked he explained.
"They don't secure them like they
would during the winter months.
This has been a lot it. Window
fans - on two incidents, they've
removed the window fans and
went in the windows
A survey conducted by the
Nath Carolina Status of Women
and released earlia this summer
repated August to be the wast
month of all, but Cannon faesees
no problem, noting that August
has never been wase in the past.
Howeva, Cannon explained
that women can take preventative
measures to help pro001 them-
selves, mainly calling the police
department if they should notice a
suspicious looking person linger-
ing around their neighbahood.
Nine times out of ten said
Cannon, "wherever we have a
rape to take place, we find out
later that they had seen this party
a person in the neighbahood.
And they didn't pay it any mind
Cannon said he would much
ratha have the police answer a
false alarm than not be notified
and have something happen.
"This is something that I've
tried to get across to the public
but it's hard
Cannon also discourages
women from walking alone at
night, even early at night.
Out of the rapes that occur in
Greenville, Cannon estimated
that pahaps twenty per cent go
unrepated, although he pointed
out that it is difficult to say. Such
reluctance on the part of victims
is due to the fear of embarass-
ment and to the strain of a trial.
The courts, said Cannon, "make
a big mockery out of it He noted
that it is usually the victim who is
tried rather than the rapist.
Why is rape on the inaease?
This is a oomplex question, but
Cannon offaed his own pasonal
speculation as to why this is an
escalating crime.
"I thinkalot of it isdue to the
fact that a young women will go in
the house - and of oourse your
home isyour castle, you can do as
you please. That's true, as long as
you've got the shades down, and
"But when they go in and
pranoe around in the room with
nothing on, somebody's standing
outside and watching them. Nine
times out of ten, if a person's
going to rape someone, he keeps
them under surveillance fa a
while and watches them, follows
them, learns their patterns. And
then when they go home, you
know, and they're parading back
and fath in the rcan with no
otothes on, it encoaages some-
body to break in.
"I think if tliey would take
preventative measures not to do
that, it would cut down oonsicter-
Media Board debates
WECU-FM issue
News Edita
HEAD payroll highlighted the
meeting of the Media Board last
Wednesday afternoon.
In a continuation of questions
raised earlier in a meeting with
Chancella Brewer, the board
oonsioered the purpose and fu-
ture of WECU-FM as time draws
closer fa the statiai to be
granted a license fa aoadcast.
The controversy over the station
centws around the power to be
broadcast, and, as a result o the
power, the probable listening
audience fa the station.
John Jeter, general manager
of WECU'FM , re-itaated that it
would be nioe to have 50,000
watts full power, but he added
that 5,000 to 10,000 watts would
also be strong enough to reach
Pitt and a few rther counties and
still remain a "local" station.
A radio station broadcasting
at 50,000 watts sends a signal of
such a strength as to consider that
signal, and the station sending it,
as "regional If WECU-FM was
to go to 50,000 watts of power, the
signal would be heard as far as
Raleigh. The concept of a "local"
station is one with a wattage of
5,000-10,000 watts, with a cares-
ponding range of signal.
Chancella Brewer met last
week to voioe some uneasiness he
had concerning the campus radio
station. The two main concerns of
the new chancella are the
amount of power proposed to him
as a goal (50,000) watts along
with the responsibility involved
with broadcasting a regional
signal, and the fact that the
university would have no oontrol
ova the station calling itself the
"voice of ECU
Brewer's main recommenda-
tion to the Board concerning
WECU-FM was that the station
hire a full-time professional radio
pwson to ovwsee opaations of
the station. The chancella felt
this need in ada to protect the
public image of ECU, especially if
the station expanded to the
50,000 watts allowed by the
frequency band fa which it is
applying. See WECU, p 2

picked up on Brewer's concerns
and again questioned the wisdom
of attempting a student-run stat-
ion with enough power to reach

imous in hesitating to air a signal
over such a wide area of
At last Wednesday's Media
Board meeting, members of the
board again spoke to this point,
noting that a first year salary fa
such an individual was not within
the budget. It was also noted that
if the station was to operate on a
5-10,000 watt basis, a full -time
advisor might not be necessary.

been the intention that the station
be that of the students, and
operating at reduced power might
eliminate the need for the oontrol
of a full-time coordinator.
Board members Mike Morse,
Tommy Joe Payne and
Dr. Thomas Eamon of Political
Science, all adressed the question
of whether the station was to be
primarily for the students of ECU
or fa the public at large.
Operation of the station at 50,000
watts would necessarily involve
the public, and a station of that
power would bring in a host of
considerations not relevant to a
station operating on a reduced
Jeter, general manager of the
radio station, said that while he
felt WECU should "go for all (the
power) we can get the station
could operate as a student station
quite well at from 5,000 to 10,000
watts. Jeter is conoerned that a
Wilmington station considering a
power boost in its signal might
bleed over and interfere with the
smaller signal peam of WECU-
The board closed the current
consideration of the station with a
resolution to Dr. Brewer indicat-
ing support for the 5.000-10,000
watt "local" station concept.
FOUNTAINHEAD payroll was
also discussed at the meeting.
Members of the editorial staff
were called into a closed-door
segment of the meeting and
questioned about their payroll
entries. The dispute involved
confusion resultant from a fiscal
year changeover to a new budget
July 1st.
According to the new budget,
FOUNTAINHEAD writers are
paid 35 cents per column inch of

50 cents. The July payroll reflect-

Family Practice Center is serving
patients from within a 50-mile

Patients are charged fees

Jones also expects the center

Orientation record success
News Editor
The summer of 1978 has
proved to be one of the biggest
years in orientation according to
Dr. James Mallory, Dean of Men
at East Carolina University. A
total of five orientation sessions -
four for freshmen and one for
transfer students - drew in 2500
new freshmen and about 525
transfer students, Mallory said.
Fourteen full-time students
assisted in the programs which
began on Sundays and ended on
Tuesdays, providing three days
for incoming freshmen to take
placement and by-pass tests,
pre-regiater, and familiarize
themselves with the campus.
Not ail incoming students
attended orientation, however.
Eugene Owens, Associate Dean
of Admissions, projected that new
students would total around 2600-
2650 freshman and 700-750 trans-
fer students.

minute stragglers, it is impossible

Gun control: yes
Mention gun control in the south and you will
immediately elicit a number of heated arguments
against it. Recently both of North Carolina's
senators, Morgan and Helms, got a chance to have
their arguments heard when they voted to deny
funding of a proposed change in Bureau of Alcohol
Tobacco and Firearms regulations which would allow
for a numerical registration system for handguns and
a national computer bank storing information on
registered guns. While several good arguments were
made against the proposed change in the regulat-
ions, they were mainly of a technical and economical
nature, since the registration system is complicated
and would cost $4.2 million. The Senate, for the ninth
time since 1968, has still failed to protect American
citizens from the virtually unrestricted proliference of
cheap, small handguns.
In 1976, according to the FBI Uniform Crime
Reports, 10,592 homicides were committed with
firearms, 63.8 per cent of all homicides that year.
Federal lawmakers have consistently refused to
pass any sort of gun regulation, many citing the
so-called right to keep and bear arms. The second
amendment to the U.S. Constitution however,
qualifies the "right to keep and bear arms" by
prefacing it with "a well-regulated militia, being
necessary to the security of a free state United
States Armed Forces long ago replaced the militia.
As the law stands today, almost every adult can
own a handgun. Why do we license drivers,
automobiles, alcohol, and place strict regulations on
the firecracker industry and yet leave firearms
The horror of unregulated handguns is evident in
the Son of Sam killings and the San Francisco Zebra
murders. A ban on firearms is too extreme, as are
undue restrictions on hunting and sport firearms, but
handguns, especially inexpensive Saturday Night
Specials and others should be severely restricted and
penalties for using them in a crime should be more
The basic problem, however, is a psychological
one. Too many Americans regard the gun as a macho
phallic symbol, the possesion of which supposedly
increases one's masculinity. Until this basic fallacy of
the American psyche is corrected, most any gun
control plan will meet with failure.

"The students own WECU, not Dr. Brewer'
With regard to the article in
which concerned the meeting of
the ECU Media Board with Dr.
Thomas Brewer.
Since when does Dr. Brewer
consider himself an authority on
radio programming? Just what
type of programming is it that the
people ought to hearFor once
we have a chance to be a leader
instead of running second behind
State and UNC by possibly having
the most powerful student operat-
ed FM station in the state.
I think that Dr. Brewer and
other members of the administra-
tion are simply scared to death
that the students might have a
radio station that is so powerful,
that they would lose control of the
university or something of that
Further I think that this idea is
childish and obviously a matter of
mass paranoia. It is also obvious
that the administration is afraid
that the student FM station will
embarrass the university itself
which is a lot of bullshit.
If Dr. Brewer can't trust a
student operation such as WECU
which has been in operation for
years before Dr. Brewer even
knew about ECU, then the
students obviously can't trust the
new chancellor and he should be
given a train ticket back to Texas.
I think that the administration
should let the Media Board run
WECU as planned and that Dr.
Brewer and the administration
should keep their noses out of it.
The students own WECU, not Dr.
He didn't pay for it, the
students did, and the students
have the right to hear what they
wanf to hear, not what they ought
to hear.
Tom L. Zielinski
Brewer should not 'meddle'in media
As one of the founders of the
Media Board, I was greatly
displeased to read the article in
last week's paper about the
chancellor's meeting with the
Media Board.
The reason that I, along with
Neil Sessoms, Reed Warren, and
Charles Sune, pushed for the
creation of an independent board
to fund the campus media was to
ensure that freedom of express-
ion, freedom of speech, and
freedom of the press would be
protected here at ECU.
The chancel la's suggestion
that a " professor al" be brought
in to manage the radio station
implies that the students who
work in the media are incapable
of operating a regional radio
For once ECU has the chance
to lead the state rather than play
catch-up. If WECU does not go to
50,000 watts and broadcast from
Raleigh to the coast then it is
highly probable that WLOZ, the
student radio station at UNC-
Wilmington, will do so. This is a
time for quick and decisive action.
It is interesting to note that
WLOZ is a student operated
station and will continue to be so
even if they go to 100,000 watts
and broadcast across the state.
Why shouldn't ECU do the same?
It was brought to the attention
of the chancellor that it was the
policy of Dr. Jenkins' administra-
tion not to meddle in the affairs of
the student media. I feel it would
be wise to carry on that policy of
The United States Constitu-
tion guarantees numerous rights
and privileges that would fall by
the wayside were it not fa the
free press which over the years
has acted as a watchdog fa and
praecta of the people.
The issue at hand is na the
name of the university, a the
broadcast range of WECU, bu;
rather who will oontrol the media
and the voice of the ptiople.
I believe that fnedon of
expression fa students will be
lost if a professional is hired to
manage the radio station.
As mentioned befae, the
Media Board was created to
prrtect the free press, and I
should know since I helped write
the proposal to aeate the board.
The board should strive to
pronote the largest and most
influential media that it possibly

Capricorn One: 'it
provides us with a good
time instead of a moral'
Trends Editor
Nothing dissipates anxiety as
well as a cliche can, and anxiety
(on varying intellectual levels) is
the root, theme, and strength, of
Waner Brother's new scienoe
fiction vehicle Capricorn One.
James Brolin, the former
oo-star of the "Marcus Welby"
television series, assumes the
role of an astronaut who beoomes
an unwilling participant in a
spectacular hoax to stage a
manned flight to Mars.
scene gives us Jim Brolin, a
disappointing mannequin who
ought to get himself a copy of
Stanislavski's Building a Chara-
cter and start on page 1, out on
the desert with a deadly rattle-
snake. The soene requires him to
kill and eat the snake ala Survive;
details go unspared.
The usual elements are intact
as well; comedy, ordinarily ren-
dered by featuring some impec-
cably mannered robot (in this

Predictable from the stand-
point of plot, Capricorn One is
still loads of fun. Hal Hdbrook
turns in his usual solid perform-
ance (he looks out of place in the
company of the notoriously stone-
faced Eliot Gould, Telly Savallas,
and O.J. Simpson - appropriate-
ly so), but finishes a poor second
to the special effects, stunt
driving and stunt flying.
Predictably, the movie's best
moments depend on horror, a
feeling not altogether different
from anxiety. The most effective
instance, Jim Brolin fills the bill)
or the proficient visitor from outer
space with the homespun horse
sense of a practical 'errestrian.
Here, the comedy i s served up
for periodic relief. It is one of the
chief weaknesses of the film.
Senseless and very unfunny jokes
crop for needlessly symbolic
purposes. Telly Savallas, who
shouldn't even be in this movie, is
obnoxious if for no other reason
than he is used to it.
Cl iches are used sparingly and
appropriately so that in the end,
Capricorn One is effective be-
cause it manages to avoid many of
the familiar elements of science
fiction films.
Romance, which usually
comes off badly in this kind of
film, is limited to husbandwife
relationships- the women mourn
the loss of their astronaut hus-
bands, et. al. The avoidance of
this element is rare, romance, for
whatever reason, seems endemic
to the genre, but refreshing just
the same.
The would-be lunar oolonizers
of H.G. Wells The First Men in
the Moon are careful to include a
mating couple of every domestic
animal, yet neglect to bring along
a woman. And science fiction ever
since has fought a losing battle to
find the woman's plaoe in the
Intergalactic Era.
It would seem almost inevit-
able that Capricorn One would
eventually become point lessly
introspective and thus lose its
surface appeal. Introspection and
over-involvement mark the period
of maturation for the science
fiction film but does little, with
some exceptions (notably,
Reynolds misses as director in The End
Kubrick's 2001 Space Odyssey),
to enhance the viewer's enjoy-
ment of the film.
Capricorn One has mass ap-
peal because it manages to avoid
too much boring philosophizing
about the loss of heros in our
society which, incidentally, is
void of any good oid fashioned
There will always be room in
scienoe fiction movies for the

Staff Writer
Burt Reynolds has fashioned a
very funny movie from one of the
funniest of all subjects - de th.
This film, The End , is about
the drollery of dying, the last
laugh before the last gasp, the
tickling of the ribs that proceeds
the death-rattle of the bones.
The End is about one
man's end in particular, a man
played by Reynolds, who finds he
has one year left to live. His
problem is not the toxic blood
disease he's dying of, it's that he
fails to see the humor in the
He doesn't know what to do,
and he can't understand it.
Mediane (embodied by Norman
Fell, Strother Martin, and Carl
Reiner as a dying doctor) and
religion (personified by Robby
Benson as a bumbling adolescent
priest) hold no answer. So he
mopes around, worrying about it,
becoming a nuisance to his
friends and family (David
Steinberg, Joanne Woodward as
his ex-wife, Sally Field as his
girlfriend, Myrna Loy and Pat
O'Brien as his parents, Kristy
McNichd as his daughter), bur-
dening them with his own person-
al problems like the inoonsiderate
slob he is. None of them help him
any, anyway. Finally, too impat-

known as a woman-chasing,

originally written tor Woody
A lien. What better way to change
his image, Reynolds must have
figured, than to play a Woody
Allen-type rote Similarly,
Woody understandably eager to
change his own image, and
probably hoping to pick up some
chicks, has finally announced
what his next film project will be
the sequel to "Smokey and the
Bandit with himself in what
was Reynold's role
ient to wait for the grim reaper to
come fa him, he deades to do
the job himself.
His first attempt fails and
lands him in an asylum where his
first sight upon awakening is Dom
DeLuise as a schizophrenic
manic-depressive murderer on
the loose from his own cell. Of
course the two beoome fast

Reynolds see the humor in his
predicament. He is a fat jolly
fellow, always laughing except
when he's arguing with himself,
who realizes just how much fun
death can be. Reynolds still wants
out, so the two go off on a merry
frolic to help Reynolds oommit
suicide by aushing, shooting,
falling and hanging, none of
which work. This oomproses the
remainder of the film.
The End is an important
step fa Burt Reynolds. It is the
second film he has directed, the
other being Gator of a few
years back. The film is part of his
attempt to both become known as

Yet, though a film like Cap-

is soon obvious that the more it
changes, the more it remains the
same The film utilizes the
discovery of a method of staging a
manned space flight to Mars that
seems absurdly negligible in
oomparision with the oomplex,
expensive and impressive tech-
nology deployed.
This innately fantastic concept
might have collapsed under the
weight of an overliterate treat-
ment. It would seem that the
conoept would leave the prod-
ucer s of the film nowhere to go
but inward.
The realization that this would
have been a mistake has taken the
film into the less philosophical
domain of the arrival of a new
Star Era.
Capricorn One dumps the
philosophy that appears to be
common to many of the best
science fiction fantasies and
provides us with a good time
instead of a moral.
Plainly, directa Peter Hyams
plays second fiddle to his tech-
niaans, and rightfully so. While
we don't get the opportunity to
revel in the welter of dazzling
special effects like we did in Star
Wars and Close Encounters of the
Third Kind, we are treated to a
runaway-car sequence and some
of the best stunt flying in the

Mural is worth
6a million words'
ECU News Bureau
If a picture is worth a
thousand words, the 17 x 12 foot
mural oovering one interior wall
of ECU'S Whichard Building
must be worth a million.
The mural, painted by recent
art graduate Phillip Harris of
Hamlet and mounted on a wall of
ECU'S Kate Lewis Gallery, illust-
rates important highlights of East
Carolina's history.
N.C. Governor Thomas Jarvis
is depicted in the lower fore-
ground of the imposing mural,
holding the shovel with which he
formally broke ground in 1907 fa
what was to become East Carolina
Teacher's Training School.
Behind him, less definitely
portrayed, are ranged shapes of
persons present at that occasion.
Harris describes his work as a
blend of "realistic and minimal
abstract styles, with some peo-
ple and events brought into
sharper focus than others.
Those individuals who "play-
ed a significant role" in the
formation of East Carolina - Gov.
Jarvis; the school's first presi-
dent, Robert Wright; and early
professors Kate Lewis, Herbert
Austin and W.H. Ragsdale - are
painted in a realistic portrait style
and are readily recognizable by
Harris' use of color and delineat-
"Where figures were import-
ant as a group, emphasis was
given to the group as a whole, and
the individual figures are merely
implied explained Harris
Such groups, significant as
milestone, include the first grad-
uating class, a row of young
ladies with pompadour hairstyles
holding their class banner. East
Carolina's first athletic team, the
Goblins, is present also.
Harris has relied upon archit-
ectural details as well as faces
and figures in his work.
Two early buildings appear in
detail, the Old Austin classroom
building, now demolished, and
Wright Building.
Horizontal and vertical arran-
gements of balustrated stairs
draw the eye upward to the top of
the mural, where he has combin-
ed important architectural details
of the gallery's interior.
Sinoe the mural is hung near
the ceiling, the interior crown
mouldings are repeated at the top
of the painting.
A series of large rectangular
side windows, ranged along the
wallsat right angles to the mural,
are oontunied in perspective in
the mural itself.
Harris undertook the mural as
a senior project while he was
finishing his studies toward the
Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in
painting from the ECU School of
His goals were to combine
various approaches to painting
and to involve elements of people
'andeventsin ECU'shistory in the
large mural, whichwas painted on
four large canvases for conven-
ience in moving from the painting
studio to the gallery.
The sheer size of the painting
posed a problem, he recalls.
He had to mount a huge
scaffold to reach most of the area,
which made frequent surveys of
his progress difficult.
"I couldn't see at a distance to
imagine and understand how the
parts would function as a whole.
Having never worked on a
painting this size, I had to learn
that you treat the surface not as a
montage of different elements but
as a functioning two-dimensional
Fa several months, Harris
waked far into the night, some-
times all night long, to complete
the painting.
Often, awed by the magnitude
of his task, he deliberately took
time out to study his unfinished
wak and just think about it.
"I had to do some kind of
initial action, like cleaning brush-
es a drawing, just any kind of
busy wak to get some ideas

Five jazz musicians who prov-
ed their merit at the Montreaux
Jazz Festival '77 have gotten
together again to do a string of
live performances.
The musicians, Billy Cobham,
Steve Khan, Alphonso Johnson,
Tom Scott and Mark Soskin are
superb jazz artists who aren't
afraid to combine the complexity
of jazz with the emotional appeal
of rock.
Alivemutherforya is a select -
tion of the best of their live
performances from the group's
tour late last year.
The jazz they make is mature,
on a par with any of the jazz
composers of today in their
compelling rhythms and expres-
sive cadenzas.
They combine cool jazz with
hot rock resulting in a music that
is very entertaining, bouyant and
Steve Khan's distinctive
guitar style has been prominently
featured with artists as diverse as
Larry Coryell and Billy Jones, and
he is one of the most sought-after
studio players in New York.
In "On a Magic Carpet Ride
his performances are startlingly

His guitar sears, scorches and
soars in that song like a magic
carpet propelled by jets. In
"Anteres" his guitar is light and
brightly electric. Khan as a
performer is forceful with finesse
and subtlety.
Alphonso Johnson plays the
electric bass like he was born with
one in his hands. He has played
with Weather Report, Woody
Herman and Chuck Mangione.
His bass is ingeniously per-
cussive, daring but always under-
stated in the manner of the
greatest bassists. Johnson's
interest in funk becomes apparent

Scott has recorded and toured
with George Harrison and Joni

album, "Spindrift" and
Shadows" are written by him
and have been recorded by him
before. He is a highly adept
musician who has finely tuned

to spin-off a shattering sax solo.
Billy Cobham distinuished

Iruce Springsteen: "Determined
;o take life on his own terms"
26 July 1078 RXWTA1NHEAD P� 9
Four years ago, Jon Landau,
len an associate editor of Rolling
tone, wrote what is probably the
quoted phrase in rock
itiasm: "I saw rock and roll
future and its name is Bruce
jringsteen That future is
gloriously realized on the Boss'
lew album Darkness on the Edge
lot Town.
Springsteen is the poet of the
j proletariat class; discounting
Dylan, perhaps the most signifi-
cant songwriter of the past 20
years. His lyrics are uniquely
American, capturing the frustra-
tion of living in a post-industrial-
ized society not completely sure
of where it has been or where it is
gong. Automobiles, that classic-
ally American invention, serve as
a focal point for many of
Springsteen's songs, symbolizing
the transitory nature of American
white urban society, a society
which has found itself in the
present with little heritage to look
back upon.
Springsteen is determined to
take life on his own terms, to live
it as intensely as it can be lived,
not on the terms of the powers
that be, in this case the corporate
structure of America. Ashe sings
in "Badlands "I don't give a
damn,for the same old played
out scenes, 1 don't give a damn
for just the in betweens, Honey, I
want the heart, I want the soul, 1
want oontrol right now
There are frequent references
to being on "the line" or "the
wire that narrow ridge between
conformity and open rebellion
upon which Springsteen balances
so precariously. Here is a man
who dares to push himself as far
over that live as he can and still
return intact. He walks the rope
without a net and honestly
doesn't give a damn whether he
falls, because if he succeeds, he
will have the satisfaction of
having been over the edge and
lived to tell about it
His characters are drawn from
the streets, their existances as
black and barren as the pave-
ment: "end of the day, factory
whistle cries, men walk through
these gates with death in their
eyes, and you just better believe,
boysomebody's gonna get hurt
tonightit's the . . working
life ("Factory' ). Each longs fa
his "moment a chance to stand
up and affirm himself. Itisaform
of redemption.
Springsteen knows his sub-
jects well, but unlike the ones
who "(die) little by little, piece by
piece ("Racing in the Street"),
he chooses to ding steadfastly to
his belief in a promised land, to
rise up in the face of his
oppressors and defiantly
announoe "mister I ain't no boy,
no, I'm a man ("The Promised
Land"), to "blow away the
dreams that tear you apart . . .
that break your heart ("The
Promised Land"). He sings for
those who know "that it ain't no
sin to be glad you're alive"
He subjects himself to a total
spiritual catharsis in "Adam
Raised a Cain finally coming to
grips with the chasm between his
father's values and his own. His
father worked all hib life "for
nothing but the pain,now he

The famous Springsteen back-
street howl is less a battle cry
here than it is a primal scream, a
necessary outlet for survival.
His backup band, the E Street
Band, provide him with the power
and perfection his genius de-
mand. Indeed, it is the same
genius which forces them as dose
to the edge as they dare go.
Springsteen's longtime friend,
saxophonist Clarence Clemmons,
although he has fewer solos on
this album than on the previous
Born to Run, ads as the perfect
counterpoint to Springsteen's
lead guitar, subtly bending a

The End was originally
written for Woody Allen. What
better way to change his image,
Reynolds must have figured, than
to play a Woody Allen-type role?
Similarly, Woody understandably

reportedly been negotiating with
Cosmopolitan about his doing a

11 The End as in Woody's
films, tnere lies deep psychologi-
cal meaning and symbolism be-
hind the humor. The symbolism
here relates to the film's theme of
death. Reynolds and DeLuise are
opposites: Reynolds is tall, mus-
cular, bearded, and handsome,
while DeLuise is short, fat,
dean-shaven, bald and homely.
Reynolds spends most of the
movie whining and crying over
something as unimportant as his
own demise, whereas DeLuise is
a smiling, happy-go-lucky sort,
too free and joyful to worry about
such trifles. They represent the
dark and light sides of man's soul
and how they respond to death.
Reynolds is the fragile mortal
side, which misunderstands and
fearsdeath DeLuise is the spirit-
ual side which recognizes life as a
joke, and death as its punch-line,
the jolly jolt that takes us from
here to the eternal belly-laugh of
The eternal oonflid between
the two sides is best expessed at

nearly drowning himself, decides
he doesn't want to die after all.
Suddenly, up pops DeLuise not

plans and still intent on helping
his friend die. Weilding a huge
knife, he gc s after Reynolds in a

Appalachian looks for improvement in '78
Sports Editor
This is the ninth and tenth in a
series of scouting reports on
ECU'S 1978 football opponents.
Next week we will finish the
series with a report on the
Thundering Herd of Marshall.
This week in order to finish
the series before the end of
summer school we will also scout
the Keydets of Virginia Military
as well as ASU.
Last year had to be a real
letdown fa the loyal fans of
Appalachian State football.
The Mountaineers were ex-
pected to field the top team in the
Southern Conference and finish
with no less than six or seven
Things however just did not
work out for ASU last year as the
Mountaineers slumped to one of
there worst seasons in their
football history.
Last years 2-9 record can be
blamed on a number of things.
Probably the biggest reason for
the Apps first losing season since
1973 was a very young defense.
At some times during last season
the ASU offense was nationally
ranked in some national offensive
catagcries but unfortunately the
defense gave up more ground
than the offense could gain.
But what about this year? Can
the Mountaineers bounce back
and take their place among the
Southern Conference top finish-
ers once again?
From the looks of things it
appearsthat the Apps will have to
try to win with a very young
offense and most of last years
defense. It seems however that
the losses on offense will be
almost too much to overcome. In
fact the losses read like a Who's
Who of ASU football over the last
four years.
Gone are wishbone master
Ftobby Price and his backup Chris
Swecker, All America center Gill
Beck, halfback Emmltt Hamilton,
Defensive end Jay McDonald
among others.
So far it appears that the
Mountaineers are in real trouble
and to a certain degree they are
as far as experience goes. But
don't get the idea for one minute
that the talent is not there fa a
good season because it is.
The maja weakness of the
team as mentioned befae will be
the offense where only four
starters return fa the '78 seasai.
They are halfback Soott
McConnell, who is getting a lot of
attention from pro scouts.
The maja problem on the
offense is to find a quarterback to
run the ASU wishbone. There are
quite a few candidates with sane
experience vising fa the posltiai.
They are sophonaes Steve
Brown and John Keith, and
fraitrunner John Keefe.
At left tackle Robert Mullen
will be a new starter Chuck Cole
has the unenviable task of trying
to replace Gill Beck at the centa
As mentioned befae Russell
Wilson will return at the guard
At the aha guard position It
is a tossup between Steve Parrish
and Ernie Hendasoi. Hendasoi
is a 5-8 240pounda.
At the right tackle position It
is a two way battle bewteen Dan
Medlin and Mike Garna.
At the tight end position it Is
two way battle between Dan
Medlin and Mike Garna.
At the tight end position
expect to see Stan Cummingham
a 6-2,240 pound junia with back
up help fron Join Keeton and
Chris Pattasov
Expected to start at the
fullback position will be Greg
Kilday a 6-1,210 pound junia.
At the left halfback Soott
McConnell will return. The other
halfback position will probably go
to Arndd Floyd a 5-11.178 pound
In contrast to the ASU offense
the Mountainea defense return
eight startas from last year.
The emphasis this year how-
eva will be on defensive quick-
ness so some of the uppadass
startas really have to battle fa
their starting positions to hold off
a talented group of freshmen.
At left end David Garna
seems to have the starting nod.
He is a 6-2, 215 pound senia. At
the left tackle spot it is a two man
battle between Steve Rice and
David Turna.
M Iddle Guard will probably go
to Greg Angles, frO, 210 pound
At the right tackle will be 6-4,
210 pound Eric Elkin. he will be
pushed howeva by promising
sophomae Willie Stricklin who is
6-3, 239.
At right end Semi Killman will
be back to handle that position.
The linebacking positions ap-
pea to be one of the strong suits
of the ASU defense. The top
returnasare David Bowman and
Pat Murphy. Murphy is also the
defensive captain and is a sure
bet fa all Southan Gonfaence at
seasons end.
Strong Safety Mile Prltchett,
6-0,196 pound sophomae will be
the top returna to his position.
The aha returnas in the
secondary are Butch Cannady and
Gary Fa) den
At the left canaback Jeff
Vincent and Tommy Helms will
fight it out fa the right to start
this fall.
On the surface it appears that
the ASU football team is in for a
long painful season. As mentioned
before the talent is certainly
there but it has to be developed.
Then again when you look at the
tacts it appears that Appalachian
State should be Improved. The
defense will be improve and the
offense will have less pressure on
it than last year. The schedule is
also much kinder this season with
South Carolina and Ball State
being replaced by Woftord and
East Tennessee State so a better
record should be in store for the
Mountaineers of ASU.

Tyson: 'ECU clean'
THE NCAA HAS still released no statement concerning the
investigation o( the ECU basketball program. The Pirates have been
accused of recruiting violations involving AI Tyson, a 6' 10" center from
D.H. Conley High School. Photo by Brian Stotler
Assistant Sports Editor
Al Tyson, a 6-10 prep standout
from D.H. Conley High School
said there were no rules violations
involved in his decision to sign a
grant-in-aid with ECU, according
to a stay published Thursday in
the Greenville Reflector.
"As far as I know the East
Carolina basketball program is
clean Tyson said.
Tyson, who was heavily rec-
ruited by many schools last
season, was the object of a bitter
struggle between ECU and the
University of Mississippi.
Tommy Yeagers, a member of
the NCAA Enforcement Commit-
tee, came to Greenville two weeks
ago to investigate the alleged
recruiting violations. Although
Yeagers would not comment on
the reason fa his visit, he did
question ECU head coach Larry
Gillman. assistant coach Herb
Dillon, and Tyson's high school
coach, Shelly Marsh
Dave Berst, the Directa of the
NCAA Enfacement Committee,
said Monday he was in no
position to make a statement
concerning the ECU investigation
and that any public infamatioi
would have to cane from the
athletic directa.
"We will never confirm
whether a school isa isna under
investigation Berst said. "I
cannot answer any questions
about the investigation of an
institution. All infamatioi which
will be made public will have to
come from the school's athletic
Although the NCAA would na
say who had asked fa an
investigation of the ECU prog-
ram, it was beheved the Univer-
sity of Mississippi may have
initiated the charges, accoding to
Conley coach Shelly Marsh.
Marsh said earlier Ole Miss
assistant coach Eddie Oran was
extremely upset when Tyson
signed with ECU although he did
no know whether Mississippi
was respoiable fo the NCAA
Ole Miss head coach Bob
Weltlich said last week he would
neither confirm no deny whether
the Rebels were reponsible fa
leveling charges against the
Pirate program.
Young Keydets contenders for SC tide again
Spots Edita
Last year the Keydets of VMi
proved all of their ritia
wraig Although VMI is I he
smallest school in the NCAA's
division I the Keydets won a
share of the Southern Conference
title and won the Virginia "Big
Five championship which de-
notes the best football team in the
state of Virginia.
The Keydets 7-4 mark of last
season oould happen again this
year if the proper replacements
are found fo the graduated
senias in the VMI backfield.
The biggest problem, a so it
seemed until last weekend was
replacing Andre Gibson the VMI
single rushing and an All-
Southern Conference selection.
He rushed fo half of VMI's
offensive output last year with
1218 yards.
It appears then that a replace-
ment will be hard to find but help
is on the way. Floyd Allen a 5,10
170 pounder from Raleigh,
Sanderson will fill the gap fast. In
last weekend's Boy's Hone Game
played in Carter Stadium the
speedster showed he is at the
runningback position as well as
being a superia defensive back.
AnOher replacement is need-
ed at the fullback position to
replace the team's leading scoer,
Steve Oddi. Joe Robinson is
expected to take over there.
Probably the biggest wary on
the Keydet offense will be trying
to replace flanker Jimmy Garnett
who also was a great kickoff and
punt return man. Three letterman
are fighting it out fo the position
They are Larry Williams, Jiff
McLean and Carl Jackson
A real plus in the backfield
however will be the return of
quarterback Robby Clark. Clark is
a 51 percent passer
On the offensive line four of
five starters returns.
At the tackle position three
letterman will battle it out fa the
starting position. They are Bob
Bookmaller, Alan Satis and John
Shuman. At the center position
Criag Cox is the returner.
The tight end position is set
with Greg Weaver (eight catches
for 144 yards) returning.
On defense the problem
seems to be at defensive tackle
position. Gone are three-year
starters and All-Southern Confer-
ence stars Ned Stepancvich and
Dutch Goddard. The replace-
ments are long on talent but shot
oi experience. They are Tommy
Earle, Joe Belda and Pat
Jeff Magan will once again
man the middle guard sia. Tim
Cox will return to one of the end
positions. Richard Bates, Nick
Collins and Mark McLean will
fight it out fo the other end
The secondary appears in
good shape as there are.experien-
ed lettermen returning. They are
Gary McNeal, Tony Hamilton at
the canerbacks and Mike Alston
and Walt Bellamy at the safety.
The Keydets also have one of
the best placekiokers in the
country. Returning is Craig
although he now must develop his
punting ability.
It appears that the Keydets
will be tough again if the new
faces can get the job done The
VMI schedule is tough with the
Keydets having to face Georgia
among other" Still VMI should
fight it o the other Virginia
sch ior the "Big Five" title
and they also should gain the
Southern Conference title once

Assistant Sports Editor
When ECU head coach Pat
Dye announced last March
Wayne Hall had joined the Pirate
coaching staff, the occassion
marked a reunion of sorts.
Hall spent seven years at
Alabama, five as a player and two
as a graduate, while Dye was an
assistant coach in charge of
linebackers on the Crimson Tide
But Hall, a native of Hunts-
ville, Alabama, will be the first to
admit that Dye hasn't changed
one bit sinoe his coaching days
at Alabama. Well, maybe a little.
"I think his hair has probably
grown a little longer, but that's
about it joked Hall. "But his
move from an assistant coach to a
head coach hasn't changed him.
Since I've been here at East
Carolina I haven't met anyone
who didn't like him. He really
commands a lot of respect
Before landing a job on the
Pirate coaching staff, Hall spent
two seasons as an assistant ocach
at Virginia Tech under Jimmy
Sharpe. But when Sharpe was
fired in November after back to
back losing seasons, the entire
staff was released.
"Coach Dye was the first
person to call me after we had
been released explained Hall,
who will coach the defensive line
at ECU. "Of ail the people I
wanted to work with Coach Dye
was certainly my number one
"He had coached me while I
Art & Camera Shop
was at Alabama and I had also
waked with him as a graduate
assistant so I was real pleased to
get the oppatunity to wak with
Both Dye and Hall are prod-
ucts of the legendary Paul
"Bear" Bryant who has built a
Southeastern Confaenoe dynasty
at Alabama. Dye handles his
assistant coaching staff at ECU
much like Bryant supervises his
staff at Alabama, acoading to
"Coach Dye believes in letting
the assistants do most of the
fundamental coaching noted
Hall. "When the assistants be-
lieve in the same coaching
fundamentals as the head coach it
makes everything wak a la more
smcothly. Coach Dye oertainly
does an excellent job of waking
with his staff
When pre-season practice
opens in two weeks, Hall will
inherit eight lettermen at defen-
sive line from last year's squad
including four startas. Fred
Chavis, Oliver Felton, Noah
Clark, and Zack Valentine were
all starters last season.
"Depth will be our maja
problems on the defensive line
said Hall. "Wayne Pcoie will be
out fa the next year with a knee
injury which will hurt us up front
Vance Tingla and D.T. Joyner
could help us a la and we're
counting on some freshman to
provide immediate help
But fa now Wayne Hall is
quite happy to be back with a
familiar coaching system, and
most of all-his old college coach.
