Murphy, Jones win SGA run off elections
Assistant Newt Editor
A grasp of spring air finally has
been taken as the SGA election are
over. Larry Murphy was an-
nounced the winner of the presi-
dential race by claiming 68 per-
cent of the vote and Kelly Jones
became the vice president elect

A total of 1199 students voted in
the run off elections.
Murphy defeated opponent
Greg Thompson by a margin of
420 votes. Murphy won all four
polling centers, with decisive vic-
tories at the Student Store and the
Jones defeated opponent Steve
Sommers by winning three out of
the four polling places. Jones won
by al35 vote margin with good
standings at the bottom of College
Hill Drive and the Croatan.
After the final vote count,
Murphy thanked all of his sup-
porters and said that he is looking

be helpful because he did not

in protests at North Carolina State
and the universities of Massachu-
setts and California-Berkeley.
At Berkeley, police arrested 28
law students March 23 for organ-
izing a class boycott and refusing
to budge from law school Dean
Jesse Choper's office.
The students had occupied the
office after Choper said he had no
author to call an open faculty
meeting to discuss the school's
failure to grant tenure to signifi-
cant numbers of women and
minority law professors.
Across the country, N.C. State
University students marched to a
campus plaza to present a petition
asking officials to recruit more
minority students and hire more
minority faculty members.
On the same day � March 17 �
about 100 University of Massa-
chusetts-Amherst students dem-
onstrated against what they
claimed was UMass administra-
tors' "slow response" to minority
students' issues.
In early March, of course, 120
students occupied a UMass build-
ing for a week in a dramatic re-
sponse to four white students'
unprovoked attack on two black
students. The episode sparked a
similar sit-in at nearby Hamp-
shire College.
While UMass officials have
kicked the four white students off
campus and begun several dis-
cussion groups, the ralliers
wanted to keep up the pressure.

Nevertheless, students and offi-

dialogue that seems to have risen
from the angry confrontations
that have occured everywhere
from Tompkins-Cortland Com-
munity College in New York to
UCLA this school year.
On March 22, for example,
Governors State University in Illi-

Faced with a tough year
The final election results are in at
last, and we have a new set of execu-
tive officers for the 1988-89 school
Larry Murphy and Kelly Jones will
do good jobs as president and vice
president. They both are experi-
enced legislators and should be ef-
fective and strong in dealing with
the administration.
They will be faced with some
tough challenges. If we have learned
one thing during the course of the
campaign, it is that Pirate Walk
needs to be reactivated. That will be
one of Jones's responsibilities, and
she is going to have to dedicate
many hours to revitalizing the once
proud program.
Murphy will be faced with the
Pirate Walk question also, but he
faces a tougher challenge in being
the students' voice to the admini-
stration. Too often this year admin-
istrative acts have gone unchal-
lenged and it seems the SGA has
bent to the will of the administration
without considering the ramifica-
tions for the average student.
Murphy will have to right this
wrong if he is to be a successful
Murphy will be taking over the job
after a year in which the university
h suffered through much bad
publicity. The actions of a few stu-
dents in several isolated incidents
has translated into a bad name for
the entire university, and Murphy
will be charged with helping to put
our name back into good graces.
Other issues the SGA will have to
face in the upcoming school year
includes the parking problem,
working with early pre-registration
for specific student groups, campus
safety and improving weakening
racial relations on campus. These
issues must be met head on, and
Murphy cannot flinch from attack-
ing each with energy.
The outlook for the year, however,
is good. The SGA has a rather auspi-
cious beginning already. All the
candidates apparently ran a clean
campaign, a rare feat in ECU poli-
tics. There were also few glitches in
the election system, and both Tony
Porcelli and Paul Puckett need to be
commended for their fine work in
that area.
Greg Thompson and Steve Som-
mers can leave the campaign with
their heads held high. Both ran fine
campaigns and brought important
issues to the attention of the student
body. We look forward to seeing
them in the legislature next year,
working to insure the rights of stu-
Was tenure wrongly denied?
According to Webster's Dictionary, the
word 'testify' means "to make a statement
based on personal knowledge or belief
This word is particularly important be-
cause life requires that we testify to many
things. There are family relations and citi-
zenship status that cannot be escaped.
There are also identification marks by birth
and accident that continuously impart
some testimony about us. Even as students
here at ECU, every now and then, we find
the need to ring our testimonies loud and
clear in hopes of being heard.
Testifying gives us the opportunity to let
others know how we feel. This is important
because it allows them to be as sensitive to
issues of concern as we are. I call your
attention to a letter that was written to the
editor last week. A letter by Tim Morris
entitled "Prof. Wrongly Denied Tenure
It was a letter about a history professor,
Dr. John Marshall Carter, who is currently
being denied tenure here at ECU. Tenure is
"the right of a teacher, after a probationary
experience, to hold his position for as long a
time as he renders efficient service.
I t
doubt left a lasting impression on Mr.
Morris, as well as other students who've
had him and surely that merits some credi-
It is often said that college students re-
gard school chiefly as a social activity; that
they immerge themselves in parrying and
then forget the real reason they're in school
- to get an education. Well, I don't know
about the rest of the world, but I do know
that here at ECU, there are productive stu-
dents who do want a quality education. We
want that education to come from profes-
sional and quality instructors, like Dr. Car-
It is often contended that no teacher loses
his job unless he is hopelessly inefficient.
This is true in most cases, however there are
teachers whose political or social activities
are so unpopular that problems seem to
develop, as they have in this case. They
develop because "capricious action by indi-
viduals or pressures from elements in the
community sometimes seek to have per-
fectly good instructors dismissed from
teaching" and this is wrong. Teachers
According to the letter and Dr. Carter, it is
documented fact that he has "consistently
received higher student evaluations than
both the university's and history
department's average
I don't know what that suggests to you,
but it should at least imply that Dr. Carter is
an exceptional professor. He should not be
denied tenure.
I found this aggressive letter to the editor
to be both open and critical, yet retentively
tactful and to the point - no punches were
seemingly held back. Dr. Carter found it to
be "right on the money
As I read the letter I continuously con-
cluded that Dr. Carter was one of those
professors who found joy in teaching oth-
ers. I was right. Yesterday I talked to Dr.
Carter. Never have I been so impressed in
so little of time. We talked about him,
students, and of course the reasons why he
is being denied tenure. Dr. Carter says there
is none: "a small number of professors are
responsible for trying to remove me from
students who feel perfectly good with me.
I like students and I want to serve them by
helping them understand the past I have
a love for the subject of history and I like to
generate enthusiasm when I teach it. I don't
groan on for fifty minutes or so, but I try to
make learning exciting try to educate the
whole person why don't they want me
to continue doing it? I don't understand
should be protected from such unjust dis-
missals, and I can't think of a more appro-
priate place to begin, than with Dr. Carter.
Poor teachers beget poor teachers, and
professors who do not engage in research
and writing projects beget students who
have little or no interest in scholarly pur-
suits. Likewise, good teachers demand of
themselves the production of ideas, con-
cepts, and research. Dr. Carter brings with
him these positive influences and surely his
services are welcomed here at ECU.
Teaching is a complex art, if only because
there is no teaching unless those being
taught actually learn. Students learn in
many ways: it depends on who they are,
what they are studying, and who is teach-
ing them. We learn by doing, by observing,
and by connecting with the minds and with
the spirits of our professors.
Dr. Carter, I was impressed simply talk-
ing to you. I could easily detect those
elements of professionalism, concern, and
love for what you do. I commend you, I
respect you, and I hope that your efforts of
making learning enjoyable, while insuring
quality education, far outweighs any
trumped-up technicalities pending against
you I bid you Godspeed.
Dr. Carter has edited many publications
and written chapters in others. He has no

Kappas respond to article
To the editor:
This letter is in response to your
article that was written about Kappa
Alpha Psi Fraternity. I was very
appalled and surprised at your
attempt to replicate the National
Enquirer in Tuesday, April 5th's
edition of The East Carolinian. As
vice-president of Kappa Alpha Psi, I
can assure the campus
administration, your staff, and the
student body of ECU that your irticle
was a bias account of fabricated lies
and I challenge you to present proof
that your allegations were true.
You turned an unfortunate incident
that was between a few students into
an alleged group assault on a student
by members of my fraternity. After
reading your article, I felt compelled
to talk to you. Our conversation
showed me that you chose to believe
these so-called eye-witnessed
accounts as if they could be
unmistakeably correct.
I am not convinced that you tried to
contact our president or for that
matter any member of Kappa Alpha
Psi. Your article scars the
respectability and objectivity I am
sure The East Carolinian worked
hard to establish.
Mr. Deanhardt, in your attempt to
point out your personal beliefs of
strained campus racial relations, you
have used my fraternity as a
scapegoat. You implied that the
incident was ratially motivated even
though your heresay evidence does
not support your fabrication.
Furthermore, when all is said and
done, and the proper legal actions are
completed, you will see the error of
your hastily written "yellow
journalism Unfortunately, you
cannot begin to feel the disgust and
pain your article has caused us. I hope
you will be man enough to give my
fraternity the front-page apology we
deserve, and maybe in the future you
will print positive articles more
indicative of our true purpose:

Yellow journalism
To the editor:
This letter is in reference to the
headline story in your April 5 th edi-
tion of The East Carolinian. As a
member of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fra-
ternity, Inc I was very disappointed
in your ability as an editor, a writer,
and a student at ECU. Through the
use of bias and highly-exaggerated
information and a ridiculously over-
dramatized literary style, you por-
trayed an isolated confrontation be-
tween individuals as an example of
racial unrest on our campus. Further-
more, any slightly knowledgeable
reporter knows that it is never appro-
priate to print an article without con-
clusive evidence, a police report, or
contacting both parties involved,
unless, of course, you are pur-
posefully trying to convey a distorted
ind misleading story. Not only was
the article a collection of fabricated
ies, the headline itself was a misrep-
resentation of what really occurred. I
do feel compelled to pose one ques-
tion to you Mr. Editor: Were you
rying to promote animosity between
lacks and whites at ECU? This is
definitely what your article had the
potential of doing and I hope that in
the future as editor, you are more
considerate and responsible to the
sensitivity and possible repercus-
sions of your writings. On an ending
note, I find it very interesting that you
could not find the time to print our
article on our upcoming scholarship
ball, but, as soon as some bad public-
ity presents itself, it makes the front
page as the main headline. Thank you
for your time.

ROTC defense
To the editor:
I am very disturbed by recent letters
and articles in The East Carolinian
condemning the U.S. military,
particularly the ROTC. I am, of
course, referring to Steve Sommer's
Mar. 1 and Tonya Batizy's Mar. 17
letters, and the Mar. 1 article entitled
"Speaker Says Avoid Military
First, I would like to commend
Danial A. Dant, Brendan Kelsh, and
Gary P. Sanderson for their excellent
letters written in response to Steve
Sommer's disturbing anti-military
letter. Keep on speaking out in favor
of true peace, democracry, and
freedom, friends - the majority of the
American people and all of the ECU
College Republicans fully support
Instead of responding further to
Sommers (the above three have
already done a great job), I would like
to reply to Batizy's letter.
Batizy condemns armed forces
"because of moral reasons I ask her
and all who share her views: since
when is it immoral to defend and
promote liberty, justice, freedom,
democracy, and peace throughout
the world? Since when is it immoral to
combat murderous, brutal,
repressive, oppressive, aggressive,
expansionist, revolutionary, fascist
communist regimes by aiding those
who fight such tyranny and by
defending our own country
Batizy lived in communist
Hungary for a while, says she "would
not want to reside in a communist
country and yet she then turns right
around and condemns the very
armed forces that have kept the U.S.
from becoming a communist
country?! What kind of logic is that?
"We learn from early childhood to.
. . compromise Batizy says.
"Without a compromise, known in
more adult terms as a treaty, the earth
would be a battleground and not the
life sheltering resource that it was
meant to be I wonder if Ms. Batizy
realizes that the Soviets have broken
every single one of the 66 treaties
they've signed with other countnes,
or that they've violated agreements
with the U.S. alone 175 specific times
since World World 11?
Signing treaties with tyrants,
dictators, Communists and other
murderous liars like Hitler,
Brezhnev, Stalin, Gorbachev,
Krushchev, etc. is suicide. Trusting in
treaties signed by double-crossing,
power-hungry dictators is utterly,
insanely absurd and seismically
dangerous. The historical record is
very clear in backing up this truth.
Batizy: "I do not see the point in
killing, when there are peaceful
alternatives By "peaceful
alternatives Batizy means treaties
(see discussion above). Nuts.
Communists and other fascist
monsters like Quadaffi do not
respond to anything but military
force. According to Lenin himself,

that Communists can be dealt with in
a non-military manner are useful

Mr. Quadaffi, military and armed
forces are immoral. Instead of giving

our warnings. Which is worse:
putting a quick end to a war that
claimed millions of lives by killing a
hundred thousand, or letting the war
kill millions of more innocent people
while we sat around on our self-
righteous, anti-military "peacenik
butts and let them die without doing
anything? I oppose the use of military
force if it can be avoided. But, since
our world is imperfect and contains
those who would use "peacenik

often cannot be avoided, a truth

Feds want to return student loan money
(CPS) The federal
government wants agencies that
guarantee student loans to return
$250 million in cash reserves, a
move the agencies are resisting
because they say it could
destabilize the Guaranteed
Student Loan program and
decrease the number of banks
willing to make loans to students
Just one agency�the Kentucky
Higher Education Assistance
Authority has returned back
reserves, while the Great Lakes
Higher Education Corp. of
Wisconsin has sued in federal
court accusing the U.S.
Department oi Education of
trying to "steal" $13 million in
reserve funds from the agency.
The Kentucky authority
returned $179,000.
Guarantee agencies reimburse
banks and other lending
institutions tor defaulted
Guarantee Student Loans, and are
in turn reimbursed by the U.S.
Department of Education.
A provision of the federal
government's 1CKS8 budget,
however, requires these agencies
to "spend down" and return $250
million in reserves they built up to
pay oii defaulted loans.
"It's like an insurance policy

Consumer Bankers Association,
which opposes the "spend

Elmendorf argued the banks
would rather give up the student
loan business and keep the
higher-profit loans.
But under the new law, the
guarantee agencies which also
are required to return $75 million
m cash advances must either
return the money, formulate a
plan to return the funds in the
future, or hie a formal appeal
stating that returning the funds
would cause a serious
deterioration oi the agency's
financial condition or violate
contracts with lenders.
Thirteen agencies already have
returned $19.9 million in cash
"Wo didn t expect everyone to
pay up nrht away, but we did
expect more oi the advances to be
paid hack and we're surprised
that more agencies have not made
arrangements to pay back

said Elmendorf. "But our concern
is that taking away reserves

find he said. "There will always
be sources for money, of course,
but students may not be able to

Hardest hit, Elmendorf said,
will be students at trade schools
and two-year colleges looking for
loans. "They're not as profitable
because students don't ask for as
big a loan as they do for a four-
vear institution. But the same
administrative costs are there
The Education Department
should not be surprised by the
reluctance to pay back reserves,
said Richard Johnston, vice
president of the Great Lakes

The U.S. Constitution, he said,
"states that the federal

Great Lakes' suit asserts the
Education Dept. is breaching
contracts with the agencies by

result of an arbitrary action by
Congress said Elmendorf.

New law not to change equality, observers say
(CPS) � The new law to force
colleges not to discriminate
probably won't change things in
the near future for campus
women and minorities, various
observers predict.
They say it's because colleges
already try to provide equal
opportunities for people and
because they don't expect the U.S.
Dept. of Education, which is
supposed to enforce the law, will
pursue it aggressively.
Nevertheless the law is "a
positive step in ensuring in law
what already exists in practice
said Sheldon Steinbach, lawyer
for the American Council on
Education, a Washington, D.C
coalition oi college presidents
from around the country.
On March 22, Congress
overrode President Reagan's veto
to enact the Civil Rights
Restoration Act oi 1988.
The legislation cuts off federal
funds to campuses that
discriminate on the basis of
gender, race, age or physical
President Reagan had vetoed
the bill two weeks earlier, saving
it gave the federal government
too much power to meddle in
private affairs.
The law "restores" an older
policy � Title IX oi the Education
Amendments oi 1972 � that also
let the government punish
discriminating colleges by cutting
off their funds. That act prompted
schools, fearful oi losing federal
funding, to funnel more resources
into women's sports, recruit more
female faculty members and
institute affirmative action plans.
Officials at Pennsylvania's
Grove City College and
Michigan's Hillsdale College,
however, sued, asserting that
Title IX gave the government
license to intrude in their affairs.
In 1984, the U.S. Supreme Court
agreed, and said only specific
programs that received federal
money � and not the entire
institution � should be subject to
Citing the decision, the U.S.
Dept. of Education, which had the
power to investigate and sue
colleges for discriminatory
practices, dropped probes of
scores of cases of alleged
discrimination at colleges such as
South Dakota State, Idaho State,
DeKalb Community College and
the universities of Vermont,
Alabma and Mississippi.
Now that the decision is
overturned, however, some
question whether the Education
Dept. will pursue such cases
"I don't think this Department
of Education was particularly
aggressive even before the Grove
City decision said Marcia
Creenberger of the National
Women's Law Center, long a
critic of the Reagan
"But at this stage, in light of the
ringing endorsement given by
Congress, I hope the department
will take its obligations
Paul Wood of the Education
Dept. refused to comment or to
say whether the department
would become more aggressive
in investigating campus

pictures show. Steve Sommers (top) tryies to convince a student to

discrimination complaints.
Ele did say the new law might
make it easier to pursue cases if
only because "we won't have to
investigate where funds were
sent meaning specific campus
Though women faculty
members nationwide still earn
only 70 percent of what their male
counterparts do, Greenberger
contended most colleges don't
need the further prod of the
federal law.
It will, she said, probably
inspire them to further review
their programs to "ensure
discriminatory practices are not
in place
Steinbach was similarly
confident campuses no longer
discriminate much, despite a
March 17 ruling forcing
California State Polytechnic
University at San Luis Obispo to
pay $20,000 in damages to a
staffer who suffered four years of
"vicious" sexual harassment.
'There arc very strong forces
entrenched on campuses that will
make sure institutions live up to
their responsibilities. The reversal
of the Grove City decision
provides them with practical
relief' said Steinbach. "But the
spirit of Title IX iscmbodied in the
way schools already operate

matter of principle refused to

Batman doesn't see life as " Killing Joke
Staff Writer
My eyes were open and I was
alone - terribly alone in a world
without God and without man -
Eli VViesel, "Night "When I saw
what a black, awful joke the world
was, I went crazy as a coot! I admit
it! Why can't you?" - The Joker
The Killing Joke
Alan Moore's latest dredge into
the dark undercurrents below the
bright, four-color surface of
comics, "Batman! The Killing
loke" is a counterpart to his
brilliant, sixth issue of
Watchmen In that story, which
could hold its own with anything
Albert Camus wrote, Moore
recounted the origin of the street
vigilante, Rorschach, who lost his
mind after investigating the
senseless kidnapping and murder
of a little girl.
Later Rorschach explains his
position to a prison doctor:
Existence is random. Has no
pattern No meaning save what
we choose to impose
Existence is random" is the
theme also explored in "The
Killing Joke It is a theme stated
visually on the first page: an
extreme close-up of rain pelting a
puddle, creating ripples of no
symmetry or design.
My problem with this
existentialist view is that there's a
short leap from it to nihilism. If
life's "meaning" is only whatever
an individual chooses to impose,
then every possible option must
be considered valid. If everything
is valid, nothing is valid and there
is no absolute truth. Does man
have resposibility to anyone or
anything beyond himself?
Moore answeres "yes He has
wisely chosen to make
Commissioner Gordon, the
Batman's police ally, the focal
point of his story. Gordon is a
flabby man who can't even paste
articles in his scrapbook without
making a mess.
Yet, he adheres to a strict code of
right and wrong, of the dignity of
human life. This code, didn't just
come with his office, it's an
extremely personal view that will
be tried to the uttermost.
The Batman's enemy, the Joker,
concocts a scheme to justify his
own criminal existence. As a
young man, he was a poor stand-
up comic who became involved
with a mob robbery to better
provide for his wife and unborn
His family is erased in a single,
freak accident, but the mob won't
let him out of the deal. The
robbery backfires and another
accident results in the Joker's
His thesis is that it takes just one
bad day to make a man give up
everything he's believed in and
crumble in despair and insanity.
The Joker cripples Gordon's
daughter, photographs her
bloddy nude body and then
kidnaps the commissioner to an
abondoned carnival. There he
takes him on a nightmare ride that
ends in a depraved slide show of
Gordon's daughter's humilation.
Gordon collapses and the Joker
gloats over the average man
whose notions of order and
sanity (snap) if too much weight is
placed upon them
He gloats without considering
the Batman: he, too, saw his entire
life collapse in random injustice as
his parents were gun-downed in
front of him. He was subjected to
as much as insanity as the Joker
but did not become insane.
We need to be reminded that
not everyone who survived Nazi
Germany gave up their "notions
of order and sanity" as Eli Wiesel;
others' faith became stronger than
The Batman, then, embodies a
positive response to apathy and
despair. When he arrives at the
carnival, he chooses to comfort
Gordon instead of pursuing the
Gordon insists that he
apprehend the criminal by the
book The commisioner rises
beyond himself and desire for
personal revenge by dedication to
something larger than himself
and so does the Batman.
He offers to rehabilitate the
Joker, but the criminal refuses. He
has become the victim of his own
nihilistic onslaughts, unable to
muster hope or faith.
The Joker's only response is to
tell a joke that becomes a
metaphor for his unyielded view human ever gets the last laugh.
of life - that life is an asylum.
Reason, responsibility and
compassion are just the illusions
of an insanity that is benign, but
no less pointless.
They share this joke, the bat and
the clown, but that's all: they
stand only inches apart yet
separated by an unbreachable
Life is the killing joke, and no gulf of personal response as the
rain drops random shapes in the
puddle at their feet.

life is not that it is rational or
irrational but it is almost

knowing you can't afford it until

In Greenvile, many students
have found a convenient reprieve
from themgney bite: the local
pawn shop.
In the past, movies have
painted an ugly picture of pawn
shops. Today pawn shops are not,
and probably have never been,
the sleazy joints many people
visualize in their minds. Pawn
shops can be very helpful in
numerous situations.
For example, you really need a
new sound system for your new
apartment. It's the beginning of
fall semester and there's still
plenty of time for some hot
backyard parties.
But your clock radio will not do
the job and Mom and Dad have
said it will be Christmas before
you get that great Sony system.
Check out the local pawn shops.
The prices are reasonable and
the quality is above what you
might find in the classified ads.
Some pawn brokers are even
willing to bargain with you. Many
offer great layaway plans.
But if you're not in the buying
field, (because you're flat broke),
pawn shops are fantastic about
loaning money on personal
possessions. Remember that car
stereo you brought to college,
(who knows why), and is now
gathering dust?
Do you own more golf clubs
han you could use in a lifetime?
Villing to get rid of that pretty
diamond your ex-boyfriend gave
you two years ago?
SHOP Pawn shops are a terrific
source of fast money. Whether
you're wanting tosell or just want
to borrow a little money until that
check comes from home, pawn
shops can help you.
If you've never been to a pawn
shop, they deal mostly in the
buying and selling of used
stereos, tv's, jewelry, some guns,
musical instruments and other
miscellaneous items that are in
pretty good condition.
Not a lot of time? It only takes
about 15 or 20 minutes to get you
name, address and an agreement
on terms. No hassle.
Greenville has five pawn shops,
some closer than others, some
willing to pay more, but all
offering fast, convenient service.
Plus, Greenville pawn brokers are
happy to work with college
Ray, of Coastal Jewelry and
Pawn, told the East Carolinian
that perhaps 60 of their business
is from students. Coastal was
established mainly because of the
college population, and as you
can see, seems to be enjoying the
advantage of a smart business
Fred, of Southern Gun and
Pawn, 500 N, Greene St. quoted a
considerably sniallerjrcentage
in reference to business, but said
that they cash government checks
with a valid driver's license or
college i.d Southern is the
second oldest pawn shop in
Greenville, locally owned and
operated, and advertises ON
Mendenhall Student Center's
bowling score sheets.
Jolly's Pawn Shop has been in
the business for over eight years
but estimates that college student
business is only about 5-8 oi
their total income. Manager,
Todd Radcliffe blames this on the
location, corner of N, Greene St.
and Pactolus Hwy.
Stan Harrington, owner of East
Carolina Coins and Pawn and
Memorial Coin and Pawn,
estimates approximately 25
patronage from college students.
These stores are located at the
corner of 10th and Dickinson and
655 Memorial Dr respectively.
So, next time you find yourself
in a fix, don't sweat it. If you've
got an article that's in gr'
condition and possibly eligible for
the pawn shop, take it on down to
Ray, Todd, Fred, or Stan. They'll
be glad to help you out.

civil war, since the south is 'gon to

be just as meaningful and
glorious as all the other sensible
wars this nation has fought.
As I was saying, the north is
obviously the more advanced
culture of the two. Yankees, as
they are called, are always
engaged in thought as they pass
one another on the street. So deep

totally oblivious to the outside

energy to say hello, that they try
and break these northern
fortresses of thought, but still they
come away with only that
electrical warmth of thought
emitted by the 'damn Yank
In the North, I have seen this
electricity in action where mobs of
people walk along crowded
streets. You feel that sense of
warmth and belonging when you
are among these people making

someone, and has taken
something valuable in return.
Seeing this, many Yanks stand
in awe or are unaffected by this
ritual called mugging. As much as
it is practiced, still no one can

I asked someone on a crowded
street what he was thinking of,

Perhaps he was thinking of the

assumed he was out for a land

That's his recipe for a successful
relationship between a band and
its record producer, a relationship
that is intergral to the recording of
any record. In the case of Mission
UK's second album, "Children
on Mercury Records, the
producer is John Paul Jones,
bassist with Led Zepplin.
"The record company sugested
we have an American producer
but we didn't want that says
Hussey, singer and guitarist of the
British group. "Then, they came
up with John Paul and we said,
'Yeah They sent him some of our
tapes, then he came to see us open
for U2 in Leeds. It was a terrible
show but when we met afterward
we hit it off. So we began working
on the album
Jones continues the story,
"They made demo tapes of four or
five songs. I wanted to hear what
sound the band was after. I think
that is essential to producing a
record. A band tends to adjust its
sound when they get into the
studio so, as a producer, you have
to know what sound they're
In addition to producing, Jones
also plays on some songs on the

that has become a rock 'n' roll
"Well, it was amusing to have to
tell I .P. that it just wasn't cood
enough says Hussey
laughingly. "But he takes
direction well. It's a good
collaboration. The whole band
worked on the record and we are
very pleased with it
Hussey wrote the songs for the
album while staying in an inactive
monastery in Wales.
"It was in the Black Mountains
of Wales and sheep dotted the
countryside. It was beautiful and
peaceful. There arc rooms you can
rent and the chapel is still there
although the monastery is no
longer in use. I would go up on the
hills with my acoustic guitar and
think things out
Many of the songs have a
haunting quality that seems to
echo the mountains in which they
were written. Some of the titles
also reflect that origin, "Black
Mountain Mist "A Wing and a
Prayer" and "Heaven on Earth
"We would disagree on some
things Jones said. "We settled it
by going with whoever felt
strongest about that particular
piece of music. I am not infallible.
Again, trust is the most important
"There was no real contention
making this record adds
Hussey. "Sometimes as the writer
and singer I have a certain sound
in my head but I can't articulate it.
So I have to hear different things
and say 'Yeah, that's it or 'No,
that's not it Sometimes I would
scream and shout but we have a
good relationship. The thing we
would argue the most about
would be what to watch on
How did the rest of the band
members react to his outbursts?
"We all understand and share
the same view of music he says.
"So if we argue, you know why
you're arguing, you understand
the point of view. Again, trust is
essential. A band is a relationship
and you have to work at it.
Sometimes we do things on our
own or one of us would go off and
do something musically and play
it for the others. We all trust each
other musically
The band came together in 1986
when Hussey bassist Craig
Adams, guitarist Simon Hinkler
and drummer Mick Brown
decided music was the way out of
their dead end jobs. They
produced several singles on their
own before signing with
Phonogram in October 1986.

Songs on the new album
concentrate on relationships.
Lyrics convey a deep trust in the
basic goodness of people.

disappointed and there are
negative things but, overall,
people are dependable

Art and reason
When Mark and I decided to spend
the weekend at his mother s house,
I never imagined I would be walking
into a mouse's nightmare.There were
cats everywhere.
Cat plaques, cat statues, cat clocks,
even a cat mat. I couldn't begin to dupli-
cate her collection of kitty litter ifl spent
a year at a garage sale. Conspicuously
absent, however, was a real cat. Strange,
I thought, and began to fear that a
weekend with cat woman could be a
lot less than purr-feet.
But then she came home, and
Mark introduced her. She was
dressed surprisingly well�no
leopard pants. In fact, you
could say she was the cat's meow,
but I'd rather not.
She offered me a cup of Dutch Choc-
olate Mint. Now that was something
I could relate to. Then she brought it
out in the most beautiful, distinctly
unfelinc china I'd ever seen. As we
sipped, I found out that Mrs. Campbell
has my same weakness for chocolate,
loves the theater as much as I do, but,
incredibly, never saw "Cats So Mark

Circus showgirl likes life under the big top
MONROE, N.C. (AP) - Her life
is a three-ring circus with two
performances a day, but life
under the big top isn't exactly
what most outsiders would
imagine, says circus showgirl
Cynthia Clegg.
For one thing, the circus has
changed. Most newcomers - like
Clegg - are graduates of schools ot
the arts, aspiring actors and
"1 wanted to work with the
circus because 1 wanted to be a
part of a touring company the
one-time Monroe resident says.
"And with so few theater groups
going on tour nowadays, it's
really hard to find a traveling
Even the big top has been
replaced in most cities bv an
indoor coliseum. And rather than
focusing on the 400-pound fat
lady or the midget in a top hat,
today's circus more closely
resembles a Las Vegas show,
Clcgg says, with a central theme
elaborate costuming and
complicated dance routines.
For such dancing and
performing, her hometown
training served her well. The
daughter of Waxhaw residents
Helen and Ron Nahan, Clegg is a
graduate of Parkvvood High
School, the North Carolina School
of the Arts, and the University of
Miami, but she actually becan her
career with the training she
received from Rhonda Scherich's
Monroe dance studio.
Clegg's first professional step
was in Charlotte where she taught
for Dance One Productions. Then
in 1986, she made a move to Los
Angeles where she did some
work for Cinemax and for the
Stella Adler Theatre. When she
was ready to move on, she met the

Acrylic art is done in reverse ,
according to Eden artist Don Hall
EDEN, N.C. (AP)- Artist Don
Hall has a different perspectiveon
life than most people. He sees the
world backwards.
As an acrylic sculptor, he has to.
Otherwise, the Eden Public
Library's artist of the month
wouldn't be able to create his
unique designs, many oi which
were recently on display in the
Fieldcrest Room and in the glass
case at the library entrance.
Hall's collection, part oi the
Friends of the Eden Library's
monthly exhibit, included wall
hangings, jewelry, curios, and
other pieces.
To create a sculpture out of

for himself. He must first
visualize what picture he wants to
create and than imagine it in
reverse and three-dimensional
Like other artists who have the
advantage oi viewing their work
face to face, the acrylic sculptor
must work from the back of his
"canvas which is usually a clear
acrylic like that used to make
prescription eyeglass lenses.
Hall carves a cavity into the
back of the acrylic, producing a
cylindrical white column
showing the path of the drill
through the acrylic.
When the acrylic is deep-
carved, or intaglio, meaning the
drill almost reaches the surface,
the process leaves a snow-white
image. Hall removes the excess
material from within the acrylic,
thereby producing an etched
The self-taught artist became
intrigued with acrylic sculpture
40 years ago in England. In 1947,
following World War II, Hall was
preparing to leave his homeland
and go to Canada to join his
mother, who had migrated there.
In a Devonshire art store, while
looking for a gift to take to his
mother, he happened upon a
beautiful breast pin carved with
roses. A toolmaker by trade, Hall
spent the next three years
experimenting in order to learn
how the broach was made.
Apparently the process of
reverse carving used in acrylic
sculpture was discovered during
World War II by an unknown
member of the armed forces in the
European theater, Hall explained
While repairing the plastic
windows used on war planes, the
person figured out that designs
could be carved from the back of
the material.
With no one to guide him, Hall
was forced to develop his own
techniques, manufacture his own
dyes and even fashion his own
tools. He brought his art form
with him when he came to the
United States.
His acrylic sculpture was a
hobby for Hall, who worked as a
senior manufacturing engineer
for Westinghouse in Raleigh
before retiring in 1983. It was

Earlvis remembers Manning
College Rover
Watching the fleeting seconds
of NCAA national championship
basketball game Monday, a part
of me glowed as Kansas sealed the
victory for their first title.
As number 25 for the Jayhawks
converted four crucial free throws
in the closing seconds and as the
player's father-assistant coach
watched confidently from the
sidelines, I reminesccd to a musty,
sweaty gym of youth.
In that small, dirty-tiled gym at
Aycock Junior High in
Greensboro, I remember
watching the jayvces shoot on the
other end of the court during
practice as we preformed our
routine lay up drill. One of the
players on that Aycock JV
basketball team was an alkward
and boncy 6-6 center who
practiced shots from the top of the
key. It was out of the ordinary for
such a tall player to be taking
outside shots.
That year, nine years ago, I was
the back up center for the Aycock
varsity, playing behind John
Newman, who later went on to
play collegiate hoops at James
Madison University. During
several practices, the varsity team
scrimaged the jayvecs full court.
In the scrimage games, I had to
guard the skinny 6-6 jay vee center
who looked at the time like a
smaller Manute Bol. I was
impressed with the center's
ma vcring agility and his
brand new pair of size 13 Pony's.
I expected the big guy, who
towered over me (I was 6 feet), to
take the rock and go inside the
lane for easy shots. On the
contrary, the eighth-grade rail
refused to camp in the lane and
preferred to hover on the baseline
to receive the pass.
On defense, his long extended
arms looked intimidating, but
opponents could use his weight to
their own advantage by muscling
him on the post. Offensively, the
young man would only take the
open fifteen-plus jumper, to
which the jayvce coach would
blow his whistle and say, "Son, a
center is suppose to go to the
boards and not hang out on the
Regardless of what the coach
had to say, the raily center
continued to shoot his sweet
jumper to the point where he
became quite proficient at the
baseline shot. Monday's MVP
performance in the NCAA
championship is evidence that the
boney fellow from my past, who
by the way was and still is Danny
Manning, has become quite a
damn-good all around basketball
During one practice, I
remember looking curiously
towards a tall man who watched
