N.C. Assembly funds land for regional center
News Editor
The possibilities of a new ac-
tivities center for ECU and eastern
North Carolina were given a
boost last week when the N.C.
General Assemblv appropriated
$500,000 for the' university to
purshase land with.
The funding for land acquis-
tion was part of a $177 spending
bill passed bv law makers in the
closing sessions of 1988 General
Assembly. "Leadership sup-
ported the measure wholeheart-
edly, now it is up to the chancellor
and the trustees to decide where
to place to the center said Rep.
Ed Warren (D�Pitt).
Warren said ECU and the
eastern part of the state need a
regional activities center. Warren
believes the center would "bring
ECU up to par with UNC-Chapel
Hill and N.C. State The center,
Warren said, would be compa-
rable to McKinnon Center on the
campus of N.C. State which
houses conferences and other
larger events.
The approriation for regional
center was 'logical and appropri-
ate according to Warren who
pointed to the fact that Minges
Coliseum is the not large enough
to hold large assemblies. "Minges
holds 6,000 and ECU has an en-
rollment of 15,000, so I would say
that there is a need for such a
facility said Warren.
Warren said ECU is to bene-
fit from a $15 million pact appro-
priated to the UNC Board of
Governors for capitial renova-
tions. Slated for renovation,
Memorial Gym will be effected by
the pact, said Warren. Warren
said law makers gave the UNC
system under half of the re-
quested funding, $15 of $36 mil-
lion sought for.
Warren said support for ECU
has grown for in the N.C. Assem-

A $58,971 grant has been
awarded ECU by the Kate B.
Reynolds Health Care Trust of
Winston-Salem to develop a pro-
gram to train sign language inter-
preters for the deaf. The funds
will be paid annually in varying
amounts over a three-year period.
Development of the new pro-
gram will be a project of the ECU
Program for Hearing Impaired
Students which alrealy sponsors
classes in manual comunication
and interpreting along with sup-
port services for deaf or seriously
hard of hearing students enrolled
at ECU.
"We hope the interpreter train-
ing program can be established as
a minor field of study said Tony
Schreiber, director of the ECU
Program for Hearing Impaired
Students. Schreiber said a minor
concentration in sign language
interpreting could be combined
with degree programs in educa-
tion, allied health or other human
service fields.
"There is great need for quali-
fied interpreters, especially in
eastern North Carolina Since
ECU does employ qualified inter-
preters, Schreiber receives fre-
quent requests from schools and
community colleges to provide
interpreting services.
"There is a definite need for a
program here Schreiber said.
"There are less than 20 interpret-
ers available to serve this 29-
county area
Schreiber said the proposed
interpreter training project is de-
signed to "enhance and expand"
classes already offered at ECU.
"Our chief object is to train inter-
preters, but we'd also like to pro-
vide more education for students
planning careers in human serv-
ice he explained. "In addition to
sign language, we will be giving
instruction on the special needs of
the deaf, deaf awareness, deaf
culture and deaf history
An interpreter trainer will be
employed to assist in the coordi-
�lation of training classes, he said.
Schreiber's staff includes an edu-
cation specialist and two full time
sign language interpreters who
teach beginnning, intermediate
and advanced level classes in
American Sign Lanuage.
The Program for Hearing Im-
paired Students also employs 14
part-time sign language inter-
preters who accompany deaf stu-
dents to class and interpret cam-
pus lectures and other programs.
Last year, the Program provided
9,877 clock hours of service on
campus, Schreiber noted.
ECU's sign language classes are
offered each semester, primarily
as a result of the need for skilled
interpreters for ECU's deaf stu-
dents. Some of these interpreters
receive their first training in these
classes, while others come to

CAT program to expand economic services
ECU News Bumu
In a move designed to expand
and facilitate delivery of its eco-
nomic development services,
ECU is bringing together its Cen-
ter for Applied Technology (CAT)
and Regional Development Insti-
tute (RDI) in one campus location.
Dr. Richard R. Eakin, l-CU
chancellor, said the arrangement
will allow the two major public
service agencies to coordinate
and strengthen their efforts, share
support services and lend assis-
tance to each other and the Small
Business and Technology Center
also located in ECU'S Will is Build-
"This move will provide a
single location where an umbrella
of services related to economic
development, community proj-
ects and technical assistance to
business and industry can be
joined Eakin said.
The concept is to provide "one-
stop shopping" for a variety of
public services that the university
offers in the economic develop-
ment area, Eakin said.
The closer working relationship
is expected to expand the service
capabilities of both CAT and RDI
and to result in development of a
number of new services. Janice H.
Faulkner, director of RDI, said a
survey center is to be established
to conduct behavioral research
and to gather data required for
marketing analysis, feasibility
studies and consumer profiles.
The university's Regional De-
velopment Institute was founded
25 years ago and has extended its
surveys, studies and planning
projects to community groups,
local and county governmental
units and other economic and
cultural development organiza-
tions in 38 eastern North Carolina
CAT was established four years
ago as an outreach agency of the
university's School of Industry
and Technology and later as an
independent unit to lend exper-
tise and technical assistance to
business and industry.
The first CAT director, Dr. Jerry
V. Tester, an industry and tech-
nology professor, said CAT was
"a university-based program by
and for the industries of eastern
North Carolina Tester is return-
ing to his faculty post and Eakin
announced the appointment of
Phyllis Makuck as actingdircctor
Makuck, of the English faculty, is
a lecturer in technical writing and
has been a consultant to CAT
The new "umbrella" arrange
ment will be accomplished
through phased-in activities ex
pected to be completed by Oct. 1

Pope and a woman, Emily Ran-

Woodlief testified an agent had
agreed in a telephone conversa-
tion with Ms. Debnam May 5 to
purchase an ounce of cocaine at 7
p.m. that evening. As arranged,
Ms. Debnam met the agent out-
side the Hospitality Inn in
Raleigh, Woodlief said. Pope was
driving the car.
Ms. Debnam, 28, of Raleigh, still
faces criminal drug charges stem-
ming from the incident.
Pope had been charged with
three counts of trafficking in co-
caine. Authorities later discov-
ered, however, that the amount
seized, 27.6 grams, was just under
the 28-gram minimum to support
the trafficking charges. Prosecu-
tors could have substituted the
lesser fclong of conspiracy to de-
li ver but chose not to in light of the
plea agreement.

that Pope had been under suspen-
sion with pay since his arrest.

the U.S. downing of an Iranian
airliner is meeting resistance on
Capitol Hill, where some law-
makers say the gesture is prema-
ture and politically touchy.
Reagan's spokeman, Marlin
Fitzwater, revealed the plans on
Monday, saying Reagan was
motivated by humanitarian con-
cerns and was acting out of char-
itv rather than obligation. He
made it clear that payments were
to go to victims' families and not
to the Tehran goverment of the
aAyatgllah Ruhollah Khomeini.
But some members of congress
said that distinction may be
largely lost on the U.S. electorate,
: which harbors long-simmering
resentment of Iran stemming
from the seizure of the U.S. em-
bassy in 1979, from its sponsor-
ship of international terrorism
and from the continued holding
of Americans in Lebanon.
'As long as Americans remain
held hostage, there will be resent-
ment to any payment, to any Ira-
nian, under any circumstances
said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
McCain said no decision should
be made until all the facts are in.
Reagan's request "has some
problems' added Rep. Tony
Coelho, D-Calif the chief

The compensation issue was
also expected to arise at the
families, how contact would be
made in the absence of formal
diplomatic reations between the
two countries and just what legal
authority would be used to make
the payments.
A State Department official,
briefing reporters on condition of
anonymity, said it is not clear
whether a flat amount will be paid
for each victim or whether the

Bad roads
Circle in central campus a danger spot
The asphalt circle in the center of
campus is pretty much the hub of the
ECU campus network of roads. This
hub is neither as safe or as attractive
as it should be.
Major renovations such as repav-
ing must be contracted out. The
maintenence department is only
able to patch the worst areas of roads
on campus, but this in itself has
caused some of the problem.
Each patch that has been laid
down is uneven with the rest of the
road. This, combined with the pot-
holes and cracks that normally oc-
cur, creates a terrain that is nearly
impossible to navigate on bicycles
and wheelchairs, and damaging to
Since major resurfacing must be
contracted, the money for this type
of work, and the estimations pre-
ceeding it, come from state appro-
priations. The project is supposed to
be under consideration, and restora-
tions of the circle should be given
highest priority out of the campus'
three miles of roads.
Must all the funding come from
the state? Parking fees and parking
have been major issues in the past
year. No solutions have been acted
upon. Is it possible that some of the
money could be allocated to fixing
the roads used to get to the parking
The circle is also an undeniable
eyesore. The fountain and grassy
area in the middle are incongruous
with the black and white riverbed
that surrounds it.
Perhaps money could also be ap-
prpriated from the Campus Beauti-
fication committee. Although not a
usual area for them to dabble in, the
money spent to create a smooth and
safe street could definetly be consid-
ered a positive move towards up-
grading the campus appearance.
But repaving the street could be
only the first step. It is understand-
able that the planners of central
campus wanted the circle to be a one
way street, in order to make it easier
for pedestrian students to cross.
But during rush hours, the cars are
backed up around the circle, neces-
sitating traffic officers to come out
and direct the flow of automobiles. If
the circle were widened, and the
entrances enlarged, that problem
might be solved as well.
Getting the money solely from the
state may be the only method that
the school can use at this point. But
before the plans are made for anv
rennovations, options in both fund-
ing and design need to be explored,
so the school does not end up with
more unnecessary projects � like
the Rawl and Flanagan signs.

Student defends shirt position
To the editor:
I am appalled. Instead of logically
and intelligently rebutting my letter,
Robin Andrews attacked me person-
ally, assaulting my Christian beliefs,
accusing me of "immaturity "impu-
dence and "extreme distaste She
also misrepresented what 1 said. In
short, she reacted just as one would
expect from someone whose views
have no logical basis to reality. Per-
haps a full analogy will better explain
why I am in favor of "STOP AIDS" T-
Suppose I'm observing a group of
people playing Russian roulette.
Some have already killed themselves,
but the others continue to play. A man
T-shirt (with a crosscd-our picture of
a person playing Russian roulette on
the back) walks up and points out the
obvious: these people stand a good
chance of dying if they continue to
play their game. He tells them that
they should stop holding a, gun with
one bullet to their heads and pulling
the trigger if they wish to greatly
reduce their risk of dying.
However, I interrupt his attempts
to save their lives by telling him that
he is guilty of Russian-roulette-player
phobia, and that he is callous, unfeel-
ing, ignorant, perverted, morally
deplorableand sadistic. I tell him
that he is guilty of discrimination and
that they only way to stop deaths
from Russian roulette is to spend
more and more money to discover
why its players die.
A little boy walks up, and one of the
Russian roulette players suddenly
shoots the boy in cold blood. I turn to
the man with the T-shirt and I say,
"Aha! SEE? Bullets can kill anyone,
ANYONE, not just Russian roulette
players He replies, 'True, but the
child is an innocent victim while the
Russian roulette players are not. They
know full well that they can die if they
play this deadly game, but they go
ahead and play it any way. The child is
the only one who deserved our true
compassion and sympathy
I quickly change the subject,
screaming, "Your 'STOP SHOOTING
DEATHS' T-shirt is a product of igno-
rance, hate, and phobic fear. YOU are
responsible for the deaths of these
poor, innocent Russian roulette play-
ers, not them
Absurd and illogical? Sure, but no
more absurd and illogical than the
rantings and ravings of those op-
posed to 'STOP AIDS' t-shirts. Now,
tell me, who was more compassion-
ate: the man who tried to save the
lives of the Russian roulette plavers
by pointing out the dangers of their
activity, or I, who tried to prevent him
from doing just that?
I do NOT hate homosexuals, jesus
Christ taught that we are to love ev-
eryone, even if we hate what some
people do. When I see homosexuals
committing suicide by persisting in
their death-style, I feel the most com-
passionate thing to do is to warn them
of the folly of their ways and try to
prevent their deaths.
1 don't want to see anyone get
AIDS. But if certain individuals,
through their immoral and danger-
ous practices, bring death and disease
down on their own heads, even when
they arc fully warned of the foolhar-
dincss of their ways, then thev do
NOT deserve our sympathy or true
compassion. Educating people by
making it clear which behaviors to
avoid in order to avoid getting AIDS
is not phobia; it is the only logical way
to stop the spread of AIDS.
Each homosexual, promiscous
heterosexual, or IV drug user who
persists in playing a kind o( Russian
roulette with their lives by engaging
in potentially suicidal practices has
no one to blame but himself - when
AIDS (the bullet) kills them.
As for the individual who "feels
sorry for me let me say this: when
AIDS (or any other tragedy) strikes,
only innocent, victims derv, true
sympathy and compassion. Those
who knowingly and defiantly bring
tragedy down on their own heads do
NOT, even though we should make
their deaths as easy as possible. If you
can't see the obvious, logical differ-
ence well, man, I feel sorry for YOU!

The New Republic
Jokes about George Bush and women have be-
come part of the public domain. One zinger has it hat
Bush "reminds every woman of her first husband
Then there's the one about Jeane Kirkpatrick as the
perfect vice-presidential running mate for Bush -
she'd add some macho to the ticket. The point is that
Bush has a problem with women, and it's a deeper
one than polls suggest or his campaign strategists
Part of the gender gap is ideological and partisan:
women tend to be less conservative and less Repub-
lican than men. But, that's not the whole of Bush's
problem. Ronald Reagan has experienced this gen-
der gap over the years, especially in the early months
of the 1980 and 1984 campaigns. "But Reagan never
trailed 2-to-l among women conceded Peter
Teeley, Bush's former press secretary and now a
consultant to his campaign. In mid-June a Wall
Street JournalNBC News survey found Michael
Dukakis leading Bush 52 percent to 28 percent
arnpng women - 1.85-tol, to be precise.
What makes Bush less popular than Reagan with
women is his personality. In public, and particularly
on television, he comes off as whiny, weak, insincere
and goofy. Men don't like these qualities in Bush
either. But they're more willing to give him the
benefit of the doubt. Women, who were less tolerant
than men of Gary Hart's philandering, also judge
Bush's character more harshly.
Even many of Bush's women supporters don't like
him. A woman writer at a conservative think tank in
Washington, who intends to vote for Bush, says he
"lacks sex appeal and genuineness. He postures as
a lot of things - a regular guy, a conservative, a
Reagan zealot. I don't feel I ever see the real George
Bush. And there's something of the spoiled
adolescent about him. He's not manly, and he's not
even your best friend
One explanationof Bush's problem with women is
that he projects a bad (and false) image. A former
White House official says she recently heard Bush
duscuss the Soviet Union in person and was im-
pressed. Then she saw him talk about the same
subject of TV and was turned off. When Linda
Chavez ran the public liaison office at the White
House, she once encountered Bush in the West Wing
lobby. Bush saidHi, Linda kissed her on the
cheek and walked on. A woman who was with
Chavez at the time asked, "Who was that handsome
man?" She didn't connect the tall man she'd just seen
with the wimpy vice president she'd watched on
A conservative leader who likes Bush says he loses
on two counts with women. "On the one hand, he
has as image problem. He comes across as not very
forceful. On the other hand, he's aligned himself on
social issues in a way that's going to hurt him with
women. The combination of the two doesn't work
Bush was a moderate on social issues in 1980, but
now he echoes Reagan in opposing abortion and the
ERA. "Women forgave Reagan on social issues be-
cause of his forceful personality. Bush doesn't have
that. He loses the liberals automatically (on social
issues) and the conservatives don't quite believe
Robert Teeter, the respected pollster and strate-
gist, believes the key is how women and men view
the economy, women being far more pessimistic.
This makes them eager for change and thus not for
Bush. Teeter says his polls have turned up nothing
that indicates personality and character are driving
women away from Bush for the condescending way
he treated Geraldine Ferraro in 1984.
Being a Republican certainly doesn't help Bush
with women. They are more dovish, risk-averse and
favorable toward government than men, and thus
more Democratic. In a New York TimesCBS News
poll in mid-May, 40 percent of the women surveyed
said they were Democrats, 30 percent Republicans.
But Bush did worse than this overall. He trailed
Dukakis 53 percent to 35 percent among women. The
reason was women independents, among whom
Dukakis led 56 percent to 31 percent. Y014 can't
blame the GOP for that. Reagan, by the way, won
women independents handily in 1980 and 1984.
The economic alibi is similar: It only goes so far.
Women who are pessimistic about the economy and
about their own economic futures tend to be Demo-
crats, not Republicans. Naturally they arc anti-Bush.
But according to the New York TimesCBS News
poll, women who think the economy will stay the
same also favor Dukakis over Bush, 50 percent to 3b
percent (again a larger margin than the 40 to 30
percent party breakdown), and women who see no
change coming in their own personal finances prefer
Dukakis 47 percent to 28 percent. You can't attribute
their attitudes to economic pessimism.
Another supposed drawback for Bush is the
absence of women in senior campaign positions. The
top one is his press secretary. Sheila Tate, and she
arrived in June. Dukakis has loaded his staff with
women, including campaign manager Susan
But do voters, women or men, care about this
disparity? 'There is no evidence from the general
public that the number of women in a campaign
affects votes or perceptions of candidates says
Karlyn Keene, the managing editor of the pollsters'
journal Public Opinion.
It's obvious what Bush must do to combat his
problem, but neither he nor his aids have grasped it
yet. He has to get the race off personality and onto
issues. If it remains a personality contest, he'll lose.
Dukakis is hardly a magnetic or likable figure. But
he appears strong and forceful, and in debates lie has
sommething of a commanding presence, even when
discussing foreign policy, his weakest subject. Bush
can act the tough guy, but it won't work. He needs to
make voters, women most of all, forget that has has
any personal characteristics at all.

The bill surfaced Monday at a
meeting of the Joint Appropria-

approved it despite Republicans'
protests. It later zipped through

Also approved Monday was a

Legislative leaders described
the first measure as a "mopup"

of between-session studies.
But it also removed $2.6 million
from $10 million appropriated
earlier for a planned State Bureau
of Investigation crime laboratory
and distributed the money among
more than a dozen recipients,
including local projects in the
districs of powerful Democrats.
Even Senate Majority Leader

'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof comes together
General Manager
It never seems to happen
enough, but sometimes every-
thing will come together in a play
and there will be an electricity on
the stage that invades the audi-
ence and sets the theater on tire.
It's happening this week in the
ECU Summer Theatre production
of Tennessee Williams' "Cat On a
Hot Tin Root
The production is a near perfect
example oi how good casting,
direction and acting can mesh
with a powerful drama to grip an
audience and make some very
important philosophic points.
Edgar R. l.oessin, the director of
the theater, has brought together
ail those elements in a show that
made the temperature in the thea-
ter higher than the heat outside
during Monday's opening night
"Cat like almost all of Wil-
liams' work, examines deep
philosophical questions about the
nature of man, relationships and
the goings on of day to day living.
Williams' uses strong characteri-
zation and simple settings to por-
tray the psychological struggles
we all go through in lite, and his
perceptiveness has made him one
of the best of the modem play-
"Cat revolves around the emi-
nent death of Big Daddy, a large
plantation owner; the slow, alco-
holic suicide of his son Brick, and
the fiery passion oi Brick's wife
Margaret (Maggie). Mixed in with
them are another son and his wife
(Cooper and Mae), their five chil-
dren, Big Mamma � Big Daddy's
wife of many years, and three
other characters used mainly as
plot devices.
1 he play touches on the issues
of love, friendship, greed, homo-
sexuality, marriage relationships,
sex, money, father-son relation-
ships, lying and the truth � all in
about 2-12 hours. It is amazing
that so many things can be
i rammed into one show, but even
more astounding is the careful
and full treatment Williams'gives
each issue.
Characterization is the key to a
Tennessee Williams play, so cast-
ing is an important part of pro-
ducing any of his work. This play
was cast well, and there was not a
weak performance in the lot.
The star oi the play, without a
doubt, is Graham Pollock. His
performance as Big Daddy is the
key to the most powerful scenes in
the play. Bollock brings to the
character a good sense of comic
timing, but also a feeling of
strength and tenderness.
Big Daddy's 65th birthday
party sets the timing for the play.
1 le has been afraid of dying, but
has just been told that he does not
have the cancer he imagined he
did. Bollock cioes a good job giv-
ing us a man with a new lease on
lite, and then turns that around
showing a man dealing with his
own mortality when Big Daddy
finds out he really is dvinc.
A.C. Weary, who plays Brick,
seems the most natural on the
stage. He manages to portray
many of the complex sides of an
alcoholic who loves his family,
especially his father, but who feels
betrayed by them. The second act,
when Brick and Big Daddy con-
front each other about their own
fears and the lies that pervade the
plantation, is the highlight of the
play thanks to the strong perform-
ances by Weary and Bollock.
Wcary's real-life wife, Kim
Ziminer, who plays Reva Shayne
on "The Guiding' Light is also
his stage wife, Maggie. Most of the
attention of the first act is on her
character, and she handles the
responsibility well. Zimmcr man-
ages to bring out many of the
forces that motivate Maggie, in-
cluding greed, lust, love and a
sense of indignation, while main-
taining the southern innocence
and naivety that seem to charac-
terize most of Williams' leading
Zimmer's Maggie is strong, but
also vulnerable. Throughout the
play she wavers between antago-
nizing and destroying her hus-
band or loving him with all her
heart. There is a natural chemis-
try between Zimmer and Weary
that makes them a good choice for
roles like the ones they play here.
John Williams, Minnie Caster
and Ann Dealing Lincoln also
turn in strong performances in
their supporting roles, lending
life and believability to the play.
Caster is especially fun as the

Daddy's farm when he dies.
All of this talent is brought to-
gether under the strong directo-
rial hands of Steven Williford,
who earned his BFA at ECU and
who has worked for three years
now with the Summer Theatre.
Williford draws strong perform-

There are little things going on in
the background during most of
the play, just like there would be
in real life, and Williford has care-
fully crafted the play so that those
things are noticeable and impor-
tant, but not distracting.
In all, mis is the best production

'Big' shows Tom Hanks' comedic talent

Mandatory drug test creates controversy
Staff Writer
Many of us will be forced to
submit to random drug test once
we graduate and enter the work
torce. Today, a large number of
FCU students submit to random
drug tests. These are the East
Carolina athletes. These students
are tested not only to protect
themselves, but to protect the
aniversify as well.
East Carolina began drug test-
ing two years ago. Dr. Jim McCal-
ium, the team physician, was in-
strumental in organizing E.C.Us
inig testing program. Because
he NCAA requires some type of
esting program, Dr. McCallum
bagan observing various types of
programs four years ago. After
much consideration, Dr. McCal-
lum and Sports Medicine devised
ECU'S program. Even though the
legality of drug testing is still
being questioned, the NCAA
guidelines have been uphelp by
the courts.
Dr. McCallum stressed that the
program is trying to educate ath-
letes about drug problems
through various lectures, films
and on and off-campus speakers,
as well as classes and printed
material. The idea is to "educate,
not discipline" says Dr. McCal-
The system involves many pro-
fessionals. When a freshman
athlete enters ECU, he or she is
informed of the testing policies.
Dr. McCallum and other univer-
sity officials explain the inner
workings of the test and the rea-
sons for them.
Each team member is tested at
least once a year. After the initial
test, members are tested ran-
domly. The coaches and sports
medicine officials are given the
list of players to be tested. A uni-
versity official then notifies these
players within a 24 hour period.
The next step involves the ac-
tual test. Athletes go to the sports
medicine building where they are
given a steril jar for a urine speci-
men. The athelctes are observed
while the specimen is collected.
Karen Baker, the assistant trainer
at sports medicine, said they try to
make this experience as comfort-
able as possible.
Once the specimens are col-
lected, the athletes watch the
sports medicine officials seal the
jar and sign a form stating they
saw the jar sealed. Then every of-
ficial who handles the samples
must sign each time the samples
change hands. The samples are
sent to a private firm for testing.
The university pays for these tests
to be run.
Two seperate tests arc run. the
first test is a screening test. If any
drug levels are discovered, a sec-
ond test is run. The second test
determines the level of many
drugs in the system. Dr. McCal-
lum says the tests are about 99
effective. These tests can pick up
minute levels of drugs like mari-
juana. Those levels often appear
after an athlete has been in the
presence of a marijuana smoker.
These levels do not lead to a posi-
tive test reading.
If an athlete tests positive for
cither street drugs or steriods, Dr.
McCallum calls the athelete and
sets up an appointment to meet
with the student. Dr. McCallum is
the only person who sees the test
results. The conference, which
usually last about an hour, is de-
signed to give the student a
chance to rehabilitate themselves
before notifying parents and
After an athlete tests positive a
second time, the student meets
not only with Dr. McCallum, but
with the team psychiatrist as well.
The coaches are also notified. The
coaches choose how to further
reprimand these students. Often,
the coaches require the athlete to
call their parents in the presence
of the coach to tell them about the
positive results of the drug test.
A third test results in the lifting
of all scholarships for the next
semester. The coaches, once
again, can discipline the athlete in
whatever fashion he or she deems
appropriate. These students are
never turned into the police.
"These students are not guilty of
any legal infraction Dr. McCal-
lum said.
If an athlete has a serious drug
problem, and the system of con-
ferences and counseling are not
enough to rehabilitate the athlete,
outside help is needed. The uni-
versity does not pay for addi-
tional counseling. Dr. McCallum
said that the program in general is
designed to help the atheletes, not
discipline them. He also said that
the university was not set up the
rahabilitate drug users.
Atheletes that have tested posi-
tive will be tested continuously
there after. Dr. McCallum stated
that he feels cocaine use has risen,
where marijuana use may have
dropped. The actual number of
athletes that have tested positive
is not released, but Dr. McCallum
cited the NCAA figure of 1.3. He
feels that this figure is probably
lower than the general popula-
When asked about the legality
of random drug test, Dr. McCal-
lum said that the athletes have a
larger responsibility to the uni-
versity because they are in the
public eye. "The NCAA does not
want drug users he said. "The
public respects the university
Theathletes influence the school's
reputation. Misconduct of any
university student can influence
the public's vision of the univer-
sity. Dr. McCallum feels that the
"party school reputation must be
overcome He said that drug
testing has helped keep drugs out
of athletes and therefore has
worked effectively.
The athletes themselves have
varing opinions about the drug
testing program in general. One
athlete interviewed had tested
positive. The other athletes had
never tested positive and few
knew anyone that had.
Mike Amick, a senior on the
tennis team, feels that the drug
tests have had a positive effect on
athletes. Amick, who was on the
tennis team before the drug tests
began, says that, "drug use dur-
ing the season has dropped a
great deal
Another senior on the tennis
team, Timmy Morris, feels very
differently. "It's a violation of my
1st Admendment rights, and a
violation of my civil liberties
Morris feels that politics are in-
volved in the selection of team
members to be tested. Moms feels
that scholarship atheletes should
be tested, expecially during the
season. But non-scholarship stu-
dents should only be tested dur-
ing the playing season.
Anthony Thompson, a junior
on the football team, says that al-
though he doesn't know of any-
one of his teammates testing posi-
tive, he feels that the tests help
stop students from using drugs.
He feels athletes are "more cau-
tious He said that he "would
leave a party if people were smok-
ing pot But Thompson feels that
athletes should be tested only
during the season. "What they do
on their own time is their own
business he said.
As a walk on, Kenny Murphy
was never involved in the lectures
and education given by sports
medicine about drugs testing.
Murphy doesn't think the test
stops drug users, but it's a good
idea. Although Murphy says the
tests may be "an invasion of pri-

Crumpler returns
(AP) Carlester Crumpler, the
all-time leading rusher at East
Carolina, is returning to the Pi-
rates as Director of Administra-
tive Services for the athletic de-
partment, ECU athletic director
Dave Hart announced Tuesday.
" We've made an exceptional
addition to our staff with the hir-
ing of Carlester Crumpler Hart
said. " Our department had a real
need for a person to coordinate
our compliance and regulations
As compliance director, Crum-
pler will represent the unversity
at NCAA seminars and will also
be directly responsible for struc-
turing a minimum of four athletic
department seminars each year
for staff and student-athletes.
Crumpler was inducted into the
ECU Sports Hall of Fame in 1980.
He won numerous honors during
his playing days, including being
named an honorable mention all-
America twice and the 1972 Sou th-
ern Conference athlete of the year.
Crumpler finished his varsity
career with a school-record 2,889
yards rushing. He also set the
single season record with 1,309-
yards in 1972.

Earnhardt says much of his
team's lackluster performance in
recent weeks is attributable to the
"tire situation and he contends
that tire brands will continue to
dictate who wins and loses on the
NASCAR tour.
"Ifs going to be a factor
Earnhardt said, "and its going to
have a bearing on everybody who
runs for the championship
Earnhardt, for the first time,
conceded that his concern about
the possibility of tire failures had
caused him deliberately to race at
less than full speed in several
events. He referred to his pace as
The defending national driving
champion has been locked into
competing on Goodyear tires
most of the season because of
loyalty" and a lucrative contract
between Goodyear and Childress
The tire battle between
Goodyear and Hoosier is about
even for the season. At the Fire-
cracker 400 on July 2, tire failures
were all but non-existent. But the
tires were supposed to have been
similar to those used at Daytona,
Ha in February. Tire failures
were not a serious problem until
Hoosier began to win and put
pressure on Goodyear, and more
speed was engineered into the
"The tires hurt us at several
places Earnhardt said, "and at
Charlotte a lost of competitors lost

Earnhardt indicated he would
remain faithful to Goodyear and
that he thought tire safety would
improve significantly in the sec-
ond half of the season.

He used to do it for fun, but now
he does it for money. Barry Scott,
a senior majoring in Physical
Education has become a profes-
sional triathlete. Scott has pushed
his body to the limit to become
N.Cs top biathlete and one of
N.Cs top triathletes. How does
he do? Scott balances school and a
job, as well as training and still
maintains a healthy social life.
Scott became interested in com-
peting in 1984, but he only partici-
pated in biathalons. Noland
Gambert, an ECU graduate,
talked Barry into entering the
Youth UNLIMITED triathalon in
High Point where Scott finished
20th out of 700 participants. This
sparked his interest and began a
vigorous training program. Using
the University facilities to add in
his training program, Scott keeps
his body in excellent shape.
During the week, Scott is usu-
ally up and literally running
about 25 miles by 7:30 a.m. After
class, he swims about 2,000 yards
(80 laps to us non-swimmers) be-
tween 4:00 and 5:00. He cycles
about 25 or 30 miles in the late af-
ternoon and usually he works at
Margauxs three nights a week,
lifting weights three nights as
Most weekends, Scott travels to
other areas to compete. This is a
part of the competition he enjoys.
He has traveled to New Orleans,
Orlando, Fla and even Cleve-
land, Ohio. Recently Scott com-
peted in his first major triathalon
as a professional. The Baltimore
Triathalon was an educational
experience for Scott. During a
Pro's meeting which is held be-
fore the race, Scott realized that
winning is a business to his com-
petitors. Although competing has
reached a level beyond recreation
for Scott, "it is still second to an
education He did say that no
matter which facet of his life is
ranked first during the week,
"when the gun goes off, winning
is the only thing on my mind
Scott had many words of en-
couragement for beginners. The
sport offers a chance for you to
"challenge yourself, push your
body to the limit Beginners
should purchase a bike, a pair of
running shoes, a safety helmet
and gloves. Scott rides a Earlon
Fiber Trek bike that he received
from his sponsor, The Bicycle Post
here in Greenville. The bikes
range from $300 to $2,000 for the
more serious competitor. A pair
of running shoes with good arch
support are a must even before
beginning training. And the
gloves and helmet help prevent
Scott has worked hard to
achieve national recognition. But
Jordan Parkway ?
anyone interesfed in the sport can
work hard for fun. The average
race in a one mile swim, 25 mile
bike, and a 6 mile run. If a begin-
ner can complete these three
phases of training three times a
week successfully, a race should
be no problem. Although Scott
has been hit by cars, chased by
dogs, and even threatened by a Tri
Sig he ran over, he says the chance
to see "what I'm made of" makes
it all worth it.
Scott has made it clear that tri-
athlons are not as difficult as the
infamous Iron Man. The Iron Man
is held in Hawaii. The best triath-
letes in the world are invited. This
race has a 2.4 mile swim, 26.2 mile
run, and 112 mile bike course.
Scott says he isn't training for the
Iron Man just yet but he has con-
sidered training professional af-
ter graduating.
Swimming, which has always
been Scott's weakness is usually
the area most triathletes fear. A
beginner should be certain that a
one mile swim is not problem.
Scott trains during schools vaca-
tions at the Greenville Aquatics
and Fitriess Center to keep in
great shape. Usually, he docs his
workout on campus. The facilities
he uses are available to all E.C.U.
students. Beginners can work out
an inexpensive training program
very easily.
Earlvis slam dunks Randy D.

Last week, the N.C. Board of
Transportation voted to axe a
proposal to name a Wilmington
motorway after the greatest bas-
ketball player ever. And Earlvis is
Look, in French Lick, Indiana
there is a Larry Bird Boulevard,
named in honor of the that guy
who plays for the Boston Celtics.
Why can't there be a Micheal Jor-
dan Parkway in Wilmington?
Well, I'll tell you why. Trans-
portation board member Randy
D. Doub thought it was a bad idea.
He said it would start bad prece-
dent. He said there are many
famous North Carolinians who
deserve the honor more than Jor-
Although the board downed
the request to name the 7.1 mile
stretch of Interstate highway 40
after the man who electrifies bas-
ketball fans, who perrennially
wins the dunking contest, who
won the NBA scoring title for the
87-88 season, who won the player
of the year award, who shot the
winning shot in the 1982 NCAA
basketball championship when
UNC defeated Georgetown, who
pinned Chuck Dressel lay-up on
the glass, who owns his very own
McDonalds, who has a shoe
named after him, members said
that the proposal will resurface.
When they named the new
portion of 264 coming into
Greenville after Senator John
East, I thought it was O.K the guy
killed himself but hey he was in
pain. But when they named a
portion of the Raleigh bcltline
after the infamous Cliff Benson, I
kind of wondered who makes
these naming decisions.
Ole Cliff was or is probably a
pretty boss dude, but look man, is
Cliff Benson more influential or
more famous as lets say a Micheal
Jordan. So I asked around, and
found out that Cliff was once on
the Board of Transportation.
Now I understand these trans-
portation dudes a little better.
They don't believe an athlete is as
important as one of their fellow
transportation dudes. By the way
if you ever get on the five lane
portion of the Cliff Benson free-
way enroute to Greenville, turn
around, you are losted.
Maybe I ought to get on the
Transportation Board and name
streets like Earlvis Lane, or Earlvis
Way. If I was really on the board,
I would vote for the Jordan Park-
way. Mr. Doub said it would set
bad precedent, but I disagree.
There ought to be Choo Choo
Justice streets and James Worthy
streets. We need to honor our
great North Carolinians rather
than white shirted burecrats who
have nothing better to do but
deprive citizens of some true cul-
If French Lick can honor Bird, I
believe North Carolina should be
able to do the same for Mr. Air
Jordan. Maybe this guy Doub is
really a N.C. State fanand has a
real hatred for Carolina.
And where do you think Mr.
Doub is from, where he resides,
where he lives when he doesn't
muddle things in Raleigh? Doub
is from no other man Greenville,
the Emerald City. So, I think we
should name a part of the 264 by-
pass the Randy D. Doub road Not
Randy D. Doub Boulevard. Not
Randy D. Doub Parkway. Not
Randy D. Doub freeway. Jusf

She also has a $60,000 paycheck
from her first tour victory.

of Indianapolis, where rain and
lightning repeatedly interrupted

that I forced myself to cat this

Myers and Ayako Okamoto of
Japan were tied at 8-undcr going
into the final round. But Myers
shot a par-71, while Okamoto, :he
1984 champion, shot 1-ovcr 72.
The champion finished the
week at 8-under-par 276.
Myers relies on her brother-
caddie Glenn to line up her putts
because her right eye see things to

"Because of my eye problems, if
I stare at a left-to-right break for
any length of time it moves. It
makes it tough for me to read a

She rec ,vered with a 3-iron shot
that landed 30 feet from the cup.
Her first putt went three feet past,
and her putt for par lipped out.
"I just pulled that little putt a
little bit she said. 'It's sad to
miss one like that after four days
That left Okamoto and Myers,
who hadbecn battling all day.
Myers' approach shot on 18 fell to

Two years ago, Rives founded
Santa's Helper, then a modest
program to provide toys for dis-
advantaged children in the Win-

of Sports Illustrated last Decem-

Sportsmen of the Year because ol

he became the obvious choice in
May when Corrigan went looking
for an athlete to head up the
ambitious new Outreach project
for the conference.
In two months, Rives has vis-

puses at least once and has met
with community service organi-
zations in towns and cities
throughout the conference area.

"Wc already have had meetings
with the people who will be the
staff coordinators he told the
Greensboro News & Record. "At
each school, it will be someone
different. For example, at (North)
Carolina it will be John Lotz, assis-
tant athletic director for campus
and community relations. At Vir-
ginia, it will be John Gamble, the
strength coach.
The only element still missing
from each organizational chart is
the athletes. Rives and David
Thompson, soon to become ACC
assistant commisssioner in
charge of compliance, will begin
contacting athletes directly by
early August and will hold mass
meetings with athletes at each
campus in late August and early

program, but it will be so easy to
participate that there won't be
