and M.S. in physics.
Another aspect of the program, according
to ECU physics chairman. Dr. William
Byrd, involves in-service training of physics
teachers in the cooperative.
Dr. Byrd, director of the grant, said,
“A series of topical conferences during the
academic year together with workshops
during the summer months will allow par
ticipants to update their knowledge and
competence in physics.”
Co-directors with Dr. Byrd are Dr. Carl
Adler of the ECU physics faculty and George
Hazelton of the science and mathematics
department at Chowan College.
The grant is the second awarded to ECU
by the National Science Foundation through
its College Science Improvement program.
The other grant was awarded last year and
gave the departments of physics, chemistry
and biology a total of $163,000 for program
improvement and faculty research. Dr.
Byrd is also director of that grant.
Two-year colleges and faculty members
participating in the program include the

Chowan’s Braves are on the war path
after a scalping trip to Keyser, W. Va.
last week where they brought home the
scalp of Potomac State.
Tomorrow night at 8 p.m., boasting a
2-0-1 record, they will be entertaining at
home as Croft Junior College of Durham
A new opponent, Croft will be looking for
it’s own “scalp job" following two losses
to Lees McRae (61-6) and Carolina Mili
tary School (12-0).
Scouts report a “very big team” with
a fast-running back, Alan Banks, of Raleigh.
Coach Garrison, who was somewhat dis
appointed with his team in last week’s
victory over Potomac State, said, “After
being on the road for the last two weeks
we should do a real good job this Saturday
night, especially with the student body
Solid support means a lot to the success
of the Braves. The coaching staff is looking
for a full turn-out from Chowan to help make
the Braves No. 1 in ‘69.

Braves go on rampage for 29-12 win
By PHIL ROYCE
Dan Dayvault gave sagging Chowan Col
lege a boost when he punted the ball dead
on Potomac State’s one-foot line late in the
third quarter, and the Braves went on to a
29-12 victory Saturday afternoon in Keyser,
With Chowan holding a shaky 20-12 lead,
Dayvault, on fourth down, kicked from
Potomac’s 35. The ball landed near the goal,
bounded high into the air toward the five
and then reversed direction before being
downed on the one-foot line.
Chowan capitalized on the accurate punt
to score nine quick points.
Two plays by Potomac netted zero yards
and on third down the Potomac quarter
back, Lanny Propst, fumbled in his end
zone for a safety and two points for Chowan.
Potomac kicked off from their own 20
and Dayvault returned the ball from Cho
wan’s 23 to Potomac’s 47.
Nine plays later, quarterback John Casa-
zza passed 20 yards to Billy Harris for a
touchdown. Robert Kilbourne kicked the
last of three extra points for Chowan’s 29th
point with 10; 13 left in the game.
During the drive, Casazza called eight
straight running plays, six by Dayvault
who contributed 26 yards. The final play
was the scoring pass, the fourth Harris has
caught from Casazza in Chowan’s three
games. Casazza has pitched seven scoring
strikes, three against Potomac.
The first half produced three of Chowan’s
TD’s, two on passes from Casazza. With the
game six minutes, 42 seconds old, Casazza
threw a touchdown pass to Morris Newlin,
freshman end from Greensboro. The play
covered 47 yards.
Potomac countered with a first quarter
'score on a 26-yard pass from Propst to end
Stan Schaefer. The extra point attempt was
blocked. Potomac needed nine plays to
cover the 77 yards.
Chowan added two scores in the second
quarter. The first came on a one-yard run by
Carroll Hart, Oxford sophomore, who aided
the 64-yard drive gaining 32 yards on two
other carries and one reception.
The other score was a 68-yard pass play
from Casazza to Wingate Burden who out-
raced the lone Potomac defender who had a
shot at him around Potomac’s 30. When it
appeared that all the defensive back had to
do was reach out and horsecollar Burden,
the speedy Annandale, Va. freshman poured
it on to pull away in the foot race of the day.
The score was set up by an interception by
Lee Copeland, Cofield sophomore, at the
Chowan started the second half with a
20-6 lead but Potomac roared back using
only five plays for a score, registered by
Propst on a quarterback sneak from the one-
foot line. Potomac covered 65 yards in the
Chowan then padded its lead using the
safety and touchdown.
Dayvault, the Kannapolis sophomore tail
back, was Chowan’s leading ground gain
er, picking up 68 yards on 11 carries even
though he played only a few minutes of the
Greg Park, freshman from Newport News,
Va., collegted 45 yards on seven attempts.
Hart added 39 yards and one touchdown on
eight tries and Casazza, sophomore from
Old Bridge, N. J., 38 yards on seven
Chowan’s record is now 2-0-1. Their other
victory was 16-14 over Gardner-Webb. Last
week the Braves tied Baltimore Community
College 14-14. After two away games, they
meet Croft Junior College of Durham at
home Saturday at 8 p.m.

Other matters considered included dis
cussion of the need for a new science build
ing to replace the present structure. Dr.
Bruce E. Whitaker, president, reported
that the present building is inadequate in
size and facilities.
The present building was constructed
in 1956 when the college’s enrollment was
251. Chowan this fall has an enrollment of
1,306 full-time students.
The trustees indicated ^heir interest in
constructing the new science building
as quickly as feasible. According to White,
the project received top priority from the
trustees. A nine-story dormitory for men is
now under construction.

Obscenity, like beauty, is in the eye of
the beholder. So says the general counsel
to the Post Office Department. Thus a vict
ory against junk mail was scored by an
Ann Arbor, Mich., man.
The story began when Roger Staples got
tired of advertising circulars addressed to
“Resident" filling up his mail box. He sent
the circulars back to the post office, declar
ing they were obscene and asked that no
more be sent to him.
He had a right to do so, of course, under
a year-old law which says advertising is
considered “pandering" if it is “erotically
arousing or sexually provocative, in the
opinion of the recipient”
An assistant postmaster remonstrated
with Staples by insisting that the advertise
ments of department stores were not pand
ering. Staples replied, “I consider the adver
tisements for beds, sheets, pillows, girdles,
intimate feminine apparel, and other such
materials offensive, ’ He went on to say a
picture of a lingerie model was “just as
obscene as anything I ever saw from so ■
called panderers. ’ He used the forms pro
vided by the Post Office Department and
sent copies of his letter to his congressmen.
Senator Phillip Hart referred it to the Post
Office Department, and the general counsel,
David A. Nelson, said that Staples was,
“Mr. Staples is correct in the assertion
that his determination of the erotically
arousing or sexually provocative nature
of an advertisement may not be ques

under the law a person can “declare that an
ad for a sack of potatoes looks sex to them.
And if they do, we’re obliged to take ac
Staples, of course, was having a lot of fun.
But his success could well prompt others
to take action on junk mail.
The latest example of how foolishness
feeds on foolishness is the invention of the
short-hair wig. It’s for long-haired boys
who need to cover their tresses with a close-
cropped hairpiece for appearances at work,
at military Reserve meetings, before traffic
court judges, etc.
We suspect that what’s underneath will
show through, and we aren’t necessarily
talking about the hair. - Columbia (S.C.)
