Insurance protects fire loss
Staff Writer
In light of the Langston Park
Apartment fire, area real estate
brokers say there are many ways
renters can protect themselves
fromproperty loss.
Mac Hines of Dawson and
Hines Reality said the most im-
portant way a tendant can protect
themselves is to read the lease.
Hines said that if you can't under-
stand the lease take the lease to
someone else who can.
Most leases are written in a
standard form. A Nash county
lease agreement has this written
in it. The lease holder shall not be
liable for any damage to any per-
son a thing, however occuring, by
gas, electricity, fire, water, ice,
snow, storm, or sewage This
clause is very often included in
rental agreements.
Mr. Hines said to remember
that "A landlord isn't always a
realtor This is important to
remember. Anvone can rent land,
it takes no special degree or li-
cense to rent land. But a true real-
tor has a professional designa-
tion. It is like the difference be-
tween an accountant and a C.P. A.
A C.P.A. has had more educa-
"I wouldn't feel obligated to
reimburse the renter but I would
help to relocate them in our com-
plex or some other complex
Hines said. "I would tell my chil-
dren to read the lease and have
renters insurance Hines contin-
Renter's insurance is an asset in
many situations. Renter's insur-
ance can cover fire, lighting,
windstorm, hail, smoke, falling
objects, explosion, vandalism,
riot, theft, water escape, freezing
of plumbing and many other situ-
ations. This type of insurance is
available from almost anv insur-
ance company.
Vicky Hardy of State Farm said
that rental insurance is less expen-
sive than most peple realize. Even
though many parents have a
homeowner's policy that will
cover their children at college,
most do not.
When obtaining an insurance
policy for an apartment is a good
idea make a list of all your per-
sonal belongings. "If you figure
that you have X amount of jeans at
X amount of dollars, a T.V soga,
bed and dresser, you'll soon find
out your worth a great deal more
than you ever would have imag-
ined said Hardy. She said that
even if you purchased all belongs
at yard sales, you should apraise
your belongs based on their re-
placement value.
Taking photographs of each
room in your house is also a good
idea. That way if your home is
vandalised, you can more easily
asses the damages.
Diffent types of apartment cost
different amounts to issue. Apart-
ment made of wood are most ex-
pensive. If you apartment has a
fire alarm and bolt locks, it costs
less. Generally, to insure an apart-
ment for 20,000, you will pay be-
tween$9and$12.00a month. This
covers to apartment $127.00 a
This policy can be easily trans-
ferred to almost any town if you
get your insurance with a national
company. State Farm requires a
$20 deposit and can bill you either
quarterly or scmiannually. If you
havecar insurance, it is possible to
pay both in one payment.
Many students don't realize
that it is not the responsibilty of
the apartment owner to re-
mibursc renters in the event of
any damages to the renters prop-
erty. Therefore, these students
risk a great deal of money because
they are unprepared.
"I'm sure there will be some
changes, but I don't prccicve any
problems at this point Mat-
thews said.
In describing the role he will
play on campus, Matthews said it
will be an active one. "My style is
one that I will be in and around
almost everything that goes on
Matthews said.
Matthews has been the chief
student life administrator at Slip-
pery Rock for the past eight years
and previously served for 10
years as dean of student life at
Virginia Commonwealth Univer-
sity, Richmond, Va.
In hislO years at VCU, Mat-

Last May the ECU Student Store
began a new program urging in-

books for the fall semester with
In an information package sent
to all new students in May, the

ing freshmen they could send a
refundedable $10 deposit to re-
serve books for next semester.
When the new students arrive at
school in August they could sim-

Opposition to the plan has
come from the independently
owned University Book Ex-
change, the Student Store's only
competition for the ECU textbook
market. The U.B.E. learned of the
program when students mistak-
enly called them instead of the
Student Store with questions
about reserving their books.
The owners of the U.B.E. claim
that the Student Store is playing
on the freshmen's ignorance of
the book buying situation at ECU.
By sending out the letter weeks
prior to orientation before most
freshmen learn of the existence of
the U.B.E. claims that students
might be spending more money
than they need to by reserving
new books when used ones are
available elsewhere.
On June 17, Don and Jack Ed-
wards, owners of the U.B.E sent
a letter toChanccllorEakincalling
the Student Store's notice to the
freshmen "both a misrepresenta-
tion of textbook buying proce-
dures and unfair competition
against the private sector
Michael Coston, manager of the
ECU Student Store, says that
about a third of the incoming
freshmen (over 1,000) have al-
ready reserved their books, most
of the students who came to orien-
tation. He says the most favorable
reaction comes from the parents
who arc relieved to know that
their children will have books in
the fall. When asked if he plans to
offer the program next year Cos-
ton says he's not sure.
Don Edwards said he has met
with Dr. Eakin and John Bell,
ECU's Business Manager, who
say the program would not be
attempted again. Still, Edwards
fears being stuck with hundreds,
maybe thousands of used text-
books this fall. He would like to
see either the Student Store re-
fund all those who sent in a de-
posit and discontinue the pro-
gram or send another letter to the
incoming freshment fairly ex-
plaining the book buying situ-
ation at ECU and offering a re-
fund to those who want one.
The book reservation program
wouldbasicallyonly affect availa-
bility of freshman-level survey
courses books like English 1100,
Psychology 1050, and Biology
1050 (which is using a new book in
the Fall). Both stores have large
stocks of used books, such as
Psychology and English, both of
which the U.B.E. hardly carries
new anymore.
Used books may be requested
from the Student Stores until
stocks are depleted, at which
times new books will be held for
new students. However, new
books may be reserved at any
time if the student or parent de-
Similar programs also exist at
the Universities of South Caro-
lina, Tennessee, and Missouri.
Coston points to these programs
as justification and worth copying
to better serve ECU students
while Edwards notes in the letter

campuses nave strong private

cause they have provided the

Rural women ignore breast lumps
ECU News Bureau
Women living in rural areas
tend to ignore early warning signs
of and delay medical treatment
for breast cancer, a sugeon at the
ECU of Medicine believes.
Dr. Donald Lannin, associate
professor of surgery and director
of the ECU Breast Clinic, will at-
tempt to understand the reasons
for the delay through a three-year
study funded by a $240,000 grant
from the American Cancer Soci-
ety. The award is the largest ever

Lannin said the research project
will include extensive studies of
psychological factors, indigenous
cultural beliefs and the social
support networks of women in
eastern North Carolina. The re-
search will be conducted coopera-
tively with Drs. Holly Matthews,
associate professor anthropology,
and James Mitchell, associate
professor ot sociology.
"It appears that the incidences
of late stage breast cancer are sig-
nificantly higher in rural women
than in urban women Lannin

How to cope with the stress of exam time
Exams are coming up soon �
how can I cope with the stress of
Exams are among the first of a

ter during you lifetime that will
cause you to feel stress. If only
makes sense that you should learn
how to handle or cope with these
situations now, so you will be

We first need to understand
what stress is before we can learn
how to cope with it. There are
many definitions for the word
stress, but for the purpose of this
article we shall define stress as
"the reaction of your mind and
body to any situation that is new,
threatening, or exciting
Stress is one of the major disad-
vantages of today's complex soci-
ety. The more the world develops
and advances the higher the stress
levels are for its inhabitants. We
experience stress our entire lives;
in school we feel it to make good
grades, at work we feel it to pcr-
orm well, and in close relation-
ships we feel it to keep the rela-
tionship fresh and exciting. These
are only a few of the things that
cause stress in our lives.
To help people deal with the
complex and stressful world of
today many techniques of coping,
or coping strategies as they are
called, have been developed.
They range from simple breath-
ing techniques to self-hypnosis.
They vary in complexity and ef-
fectiveness, but all have one thing
in common: they reduce the
individual's stress level by relax-
ing hisher mind and body.

One of the first things to re-
member when coping with stress
is that you're not alone. Everyone
feels stress, so don't feel like
you're the only one. When the
pressure of that upcoming final
gets to be too much, put up your
books and go visit a friend. Talk
about anything, but at least for a
few minutes, try to put your exam
out of your mind, and just enjoy
your friend's company. The odds
arc heshe is having similar feel-
ings and would also appreciate a
break from the books. You will
feel much more relaxed and able
to study afterwards.
Talking is one of the simplest
and yet most effective coping
strategies there is. Another simple
yet effective technique is deep
breathing. Close your eyes, clear
your mind of all thoughts, and
take two or three deep cleansing
breaths. It is quick, easy, simple,
and yet it is very effective. You
might want to try it while your arc
sitting at your desk studying.
Exercise is also a great way to
relieve tension or stress. A good
workout will do wonders for re-
lieving the stress you are feeling.
A brisk walk will help tremen-

Five kilos of coke found in drug bust
kilograms of cocaine were inter-
cepted by undercover drug
agents and three men believed to
be connected to major drug traf-
fickers were denied bond Friday
after their arrest a day earlier,
authorities said.
Agents seized the cocaine, val-
ued at $2 million, after arriving in

Paul Andrew Pavloff, 26, Fran-

Amador Alexis Brand-Maigucl,
26, a Venuzelan citizen, are
charged with violating federal
v ontrollcd substance laws. Each
could face life in prison and $4
million in fines.
According to criminal com-
plaints filed in U.S. District court
Thursday, the three men have
been charged with conspiracy to

cocaine, interstate travel to aid in
racketeering and aiding and abet-

Assistant U.S. Attorney Rocco
During their initial court ap-
pearance Friday, federal Magis-

pared to put on evidence to sup-

the men time to prepare a defense.
Pavloff is believed to be the
source of a two-kilogram cocaine
shipment seizeci April 18 during a
raid in Wilmington in which three
people were arrested at a Market
Street motel, court records show.
Among those arrested in April
was Curtis Ray Johnson of New
Hanover Countv. Johnson was
indicted on a drug trafficking
charge last May and was charged
under the federal continuing
criminal enterprise statute which
carries a minimum 10-ycar sen-
tence without parole and a maxi-
mum life sentence.
Authorities believe Johnson is a
key drug ring organizer in the
Wilmington area in charge of at
least five other people involved in
the ring, according to the indict-
ment under which he is charged.
However, according to docu-
ments filed with the court Thurs-
day, Johnson provided drug
agents with much of the informa-
tion that led to the arrest and
seizures Thursday.
After Johnson's arrest in April,
drug agents recorded numerous
telephone conversations between
Johnson and Pavloff. Asa result of

Iran, Iraq may end eight year war
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) � Iran
claimed Iraqi troops pushed fur-
ther into Iranian territory today as
a United Nations team arrived in
Tehran to discuss a truce between
the Persian Gulf enemies.
Iraq, after a series of sweeping
attacks during the weekend, de-
nied the claim and said it was
moving its forces out of Iran and
would take its dispute to the bar-
gaining table.
Meanwhile, the National Lib-
eration Army of Iran, an Iraqi-
backed forced opposed to
Ayatohllah Ruhollah Khomeini,
claimed its forces had taken two
Iranian towns and had marched
95 miles into Iran.
In New York, diplomats for
both countries were preparing to
meet Wednesday with U.N. Sec-
rotary-Goneral Javier Perez de
Cucllar to discuss an end to the 8-
ycar-old gulf war.
A separate team of U.N. ad is
ers arrived in Tehran today to
begin working on the technical
aspects of a truce. Lt. Gen. Martin
Vadset, the team leader, said he
will explore ways to implement
and maintain a cease-fire, Iran's
Islamic Republic News Agency
The agency, monitored in Cy-
prus, said the seven officials
would remain in Tehran for three
days, then fly to Baghdad.
Another team of U.N. experts is
already in Tehran to determine
the status of prisoners of war.
The peace moves were made
possible after Iran announced
July 18 that it accepted a U.N.
resolution calling for a cease-fire.
Iraq accepted the resolution
shortly after it was adopted in
July 1987.
But since then, Iraq has sought
to take as many Iranian prisoners
as possible, saying it captured
more than 8,000 in three days in
attacks that began Friday, appar-
ently as a bargaining chip during
peace talks.
A communique carried by the
official Iraqi News Agency said
Iraqi troops would "be with-
drawn in line with our declared
policy that we have no territorial
ambitions in Iran
Announcers on state-run Iraqi
telelvision said troops would pull
back today from Qasr-e Shirin,
Sumar and Sar-e Pol-e Zahab, all
on the central war front.
A military spokesman said on
Baghdad radio today that Iraqi
forces had pulled out of Gilan-e
Gharfo in the morning and would
soon withdraw from the other
But the Iranian news agency
said Iraqi troops thrust further
into Iran early today and tried to
take the town of Karand, 35 miles
from the border, and the nearby
town of Eslamabad.
It said Iranian fighters launched
a counter-offensive and pushed
the Iraqis out of Karand, killing or
wounding hundreds, with the
help of residents.
lt said the Iraqis still held
Eslamabad but Iranian forces
were battling to free the town in
"heavy fighting
The deputy speaker of the Ira-
nian Parliament, Mehdi Karrubi,
announced the legislature was to
be "temporarily closed so that the
deputies may go to the war
fronts the Islamic Republic
News Agency reported.
In Baghdad, Information Minis-
ter Latif Jeassem called the Iranian
claims "lies and fabrications" and
re-asserted that Iraq planned to
complete its pullout on the central
front today.
A spokesman in Baghdad for
the National Liberation Army, an
alliance of anti-Khomeini exile
groups, claimed it took Karand.
Large numbers of Iranian
troops in the area defected to the
opposition army, bringing their
weapons and equipment, said the
spokesman, Alircza Jafarzadch.
1 le sud "several divisions" of
the army were 95 miles inside Iran
and heading toward the provin-
cial capital of Bakhtaran.
The conflicting claims could not
be independently confirmed.
Perez de Cucllar said Monday
in New York that he will meet
separately with Iranian Foreign
Minister Ali Akbar Velayati and
his Iraqi counterpart Tariq Aziz.
He said Iran is not yet prepared to
have direct talks with its enemy,
but the U.N. chief said he may
suggest direct meetings later.

Doctors need American Indian bones
tors arc asking American Indians
to consider donating bone mar-
row fora transplant to save the life
of a 4-ycar-old Indian girl suffer-
ing from a rare form of leukemia.
The appeal to potential Indian
donors for Rae Lynn Geshick was
made because heredity factors
make this the best approach, doc-
tors said Monday.
Without the transplant, the girl
will probably die within six
months, said Dr. Philip McGlave,
director of the Adult Bone Mar-
row Transplant Program at the
University on Minnesota.
If she gets the transplant, her
chances of surviving are 1 in 3,
McGlave said during a news
briefing at the American Indian
Rae Lynn's four siblings and
her biological parents do not have
compatible bone marrow, and a
search of the National Bone Mar-
row Donor Registry found no
match among the 18,000 regis-
tered donors, said Dr. David
Stroncek, medical director of the
registry. Most of those registered
arc Caucasian.
Rae Lynn, who lives with her
foster parents, was diagnosed as
having a rare form of blood cancer
� chronic myclogenous leuke-
mia � when she was 8 months
old. She received intensive
chemotherapy and her disease
went into remission for about
three years, but she became ill
again last April.
"All of my people, please get
out and help this little girl said
her foster mother, Lillian Bruchl,
who is a Chippcwa Indian.
K 1,000 American Indian volun-
teers can be tested, two or three
may be found with bone marrow
that matches Rae Lynn's, Stron-
cek said.

- Students may have reservations
The beginning of the school year is
never without its frustrations. One
major hassle that every student, new
or returning, has to face is the book
buying process. This year, in 3 move
designed to cut down on some of the
confusion and crowds, the Student
Store has allowed incoming fresh-
men to sign up in a book reservation
The process assures freshmen and
their parents that they will have the
texts they need without having to
run around. This idea is laudable,
though there are a few bugs in the
system, the main one being that it
will most likely cut down on the
number of used texts available for
transfer students and upperclass-
men trying to finish general college
Though the Student Store em-
phatically states that all students
will have no problem getting the
book they need for classes, the fact
remains that the supply of used text-
book s in the freshmen survey
courses will no doubt dwindle
amazingly on the first day of school.
Admittedly, many parents may
wish for their sons and daughters to
reserve only new books. But with
prices so high for books, even some
of the used ones, parents willing to
pay for brand new texts being in the
majority seems unlikely.
The 10 dollar deposit required to
hold the books also seems a bit
much, especially for books where
that may be almost or more than half
the price. Since the deposit goes
toward the price of the text, it is not
unreasonable, but varying rates
might be considered if the program
The program will no doubt be a
help to incoming freshmen, one less
thing they have to contend with.
Although it seems that the students
who came to orientation will have
an unfair advantage over those who
didn't or the rising upperclassmen,
the benefits ot having a large chunk
oi the freshman population not
crowding the bookstore on the first
day of school should help put the
whole situation in perspective.

One more T-shirt letter
To the editor:
I challenge anyone who owns a

product is, in my opinion, blatantly
obscene. Webster's Dictionary de-

such rubbish.
Also, the apostle Paul wrote in
hphesians 5 that there should not
even be a "hint" of obscenity among
Christ's followers. Since Justin Sturz

Jackson has to face disappointment
The moment is approaching when Jesse Jackson and Mi-
chael Dukakis will effect whatever it is they are going to effect
during the Democratic convention. Mere is what is discernible
from the event as of Sunday night.
Dukakis is ever so lightly attempting ever so firmly to make
it clear to the American public that he is something less than
Jesse Jackson's manservant, while giving, when appropriate,
the impression that historically he probably ought to be.
This has been done by one or two maneuvers with undeni-
able meaning. Primary among them was the choice of Lloyd
Bentsen as a running mate. This was, in traditional language,
the decision to "balance" the ticket. He did this adroitly by
summoning the historical precedent of John F. Kennedy.
It is important to remember that in Democratic official
history, John F. Kennedy could do no wrong. So that his
choice of Lyndon Johnson as vice presidential candidate was
right, irrespective of a) whether JFK was a good president, or
b) whether Johnson was a good vice president and later,
But more important was Dukakis' clear message that he
was rejecting the ideological association the public has
tended to make between him and Jackson. Both are in-
dusputable big government spenders, joint allies in the war
against resourceful anti-communist international strategy,
and soft on almost every point in which the interests of the
Soviet Union and the United States collide.
Given that in political discourse what matters is the impres-
sion conveyed, as distinguished from objective reality,
Dukakis scored: His position on national and world affairs is,
somehow, "different" from that of Jesse Jackson. Hard-boiled
analysts of the tendency of the positions of both gentlemen
win conclude, in the fleeted phrase of columnist Joe Sobran,
that the difference between their leftward marches is a math i
of velocity rather than substance.
Then there was the question of how Jackson was advise I
the decision to go with Bentsen. dearie the reverend's I
ings were hurt. Dukakis' excuse was oi the kind that app
to men of affairs: The message didn't get through as plan:
and what do you know, the reverend heard about Bent
some time after 200 million lesser Americans heard about
through the media.
Dukakis went only so far as to say that he had planned U
Jackson be the first man to hear, but he was wondcrl
philosophical about the deadline being missed. As it I
valentine he sent to his mother arrived not on Feb. 14 but

Bush introduces Ms. Rosy Scenario again
The New Republic
George Bush plans to campaign against Michael
Dukakis by portraying him as a tax raiser. Bush, by
contrast, promises to submit a balanced federal
budget within three years of taking office, and to do
so without any tax increases. Furthermore, Bush
declares he will do this without touching Social
Security, and without cutting defense spending.
Bush's magic elixir is something he calls a "flexible
freeze That sounds fairly painless, and Bush has
kept it nice and vague. But if Bush is to keep his
promise about taxes, he will have to severely cut
programs that are important to a lot of voters.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, if
defense and most domestic programs are increased
with inflation while programs like Social Security,
Medicare, and farm price supports continue as in
current law, the deficit in fiscal 1993 will be $139
billion. (Without a $97 billion Social Security surplus
- more than double this year's - the deficit wiuld be
$236 billion.)
How does Bush propose to wipe out that $139
billion deficit? He divides the job between two old
friends from the early days of the Reagan admini-
stration: Ms. Rosy Scenario and Mr. Magic Asterisk
(both coinages of David Stockman).
Rosy Scenario takes care of about $66 billion. In
19S1 Rosy told us we could "grow our way out of the
deficit She was wrong. This time Rosy's emphasis
is on interest rates. She tells us that long-term interest
rates in 1993 will be 4.5 percent. This is almost three
points lower than cither the CBOor private forecast-
ers expect, and it saves a great deal of money in
federal interest payments. Giver '�eccnt Federal
Reserve actions and the need cep attracting
foreign investment to finance the deifict, this mam-
moth decline seems unlikely.
But let's accept this wildly ptimistic forecast.
Where docs the other $73 billion come from? In
Stockman's early budgets, to make the numbers add
up, he would add here and there an - the "magic
asterisk" - which stood for "additional savings to be
proposed Bush's "flexible freeze" is like
Stockman's "magic asterisk" with this difference:
He doesn't even concede that some cuts will be
required. But we can figure it out.
Budgets arc subject to the iron laws of arithmetic.
To balance the budget, outlays must equal revenues.
Since revenues in fiscal 1993 are expected to be
$1,261 billion, a balanced budget required outlays of
no more than $1,261 billion. Outlays come in several
categories: interest, Social Security, defense and "all
Bush has tole us that Social Security will remain
untouched ($303 billion), that defense will grow
with inflation ($346 billion), and that interest will be
calculated under the rosy scenario ($142 billion).
That leaves a simple subtraction problem: 1,261
minus 303 minus 346 minus 142 equals 470. That is
the amount available for "all other" spending: $470
Every year the CBO computes how much spend-
ing would be if no laws were changed and discre-
tionary programs increased with inflation. This is
called the "baseline For "entitlement" programs
like Social Security, Medicare, farm price supports
and pensions, you count the number of eligible
people and calculate their benefits to get the total
program costs.
For other government activities, like environ-
mental protection or health research, programs like
EPA or health research or economic development
grants, you simply index last year's spending for
inflation. The current policy baseline estimate for
"all other" spending in fiscal 1993 is $543 billion, or
13 percent. How's he gonna do it?
If you're not going to touch defense and Social
Security, and you've already made wildly optimistic
assumptions about interest payments, the only big-
ticket item left is Medicare. Medicare is the fastest
growing domestic program in the budget, and it
grows much faster than inflation - from $80 billion in
1988 to a projected $137 billion in 1993.
Holding Medicare's total growth rate to inflation
means cutting each person's benefits, perhaps radi-
cally. To hold Medicare to the growth rate of general
inflation, it must be cut by 30 percent in 1993. The
unimaginable radical step of doubling the current
monthly premium Medicare recipients pay (don't
call it a tax increase!) would bring in 51 o billion. A.lot
but hardly enough.
What else? Total clmination of federal economic
development projects would save $3.4 billion.
drastic cut in federal transpotation aid might sav
$2.6 billion. Forget about grants for wastewa'
treatment plants tocomply with the Clean Water Ao
and you can save $1.2 billion.
And then ther are benefit programs. There is a feu
billion to be saved by tightening up on disibilitx
rules for veterans, reducing price guarantees for
farmers, delaying unemployment benefits, freezing
federal civilian pay, and so on. But if Bush wishes to
propose these cuts, he should have to do so and take
the heat.
A dozen or so steps of this sort might save up to $
billion, far short of budget balance. The numbers ca n
work - if rosy scenario comes true, if deep cuts are
made in various programs, and if all other programs
are held at their 1989 spending levels. But this would
mean no increases for education, for health research
for drug programs, for environmental protection
for anything in government. In fact, it would be vcr
hard not to have to cut these programs.
For Bush to announce that he has a plan called a
"flexible freeze" - and that it can balance the budget
without raising taxes and without causing any other
sort of undue pain - is excessively dishonest even bv

Tanning machines to be regulated by officials

Commission approved draft
regulations Friday that would
require the tanning salons to post

would be mandated.
The proposed rules also would

The commission decided two
years ago to consider regulating
tanning salons because of concern
by doctors that the radiation in the
booths, like sunshine, may harm
the eyes and skin.
Dermatologists say the untravi-
olct radiation that turns the skin
brown is the same whether it
comes from the sun or lights in a
tanning booth, sometimes caus-
ing skin cancer if exposure contin-
ues over a long period.
Untraviolct rays come in "A"
and "B" wavelengths. The "B"
variety � the shorter of the two �
sunburns the top layer of skin.
The "A" rays penetrate deeper,
making melanin, a dark pigment,
rise to the skin surface and turn it
Unlike the sun, tanning equip-
ment gives off mostly "A" rays,
eliminating the sunburn fear. But
some plysicians have suggested
the absence of sunburn pain may
lull people into using the tanning
equipment longer and more fre-
quently than advisable.
The proposed regulations will
be published in the State Register
this fall, followed by a public
hearing and written comments. If
all goes according to schedule, the
commission could adopt the
regulations at its next meeting,
tentatively set for Feb. 24, officials

newly built retirement home
must be moved - structure, occu-
pants and all - because of a series
of construction errors that placed
it too close to the street, city offi-
cials say.
But its owners claim the city
made the first mistake.
"We really got a raw deal from
the city said Sanford Mauldin,
co-owner of the nine-room home
on VVestdale Place that admitted
its first residents this spring.
A city zoning code enforcement
officer erroneously signed a
building permit ia 1987, sayjng
the House hpuld fcevttfc �5r fmk
from the property line when if
actually should have been 30 feet,
city officials admit.
But by the time it was com-
pleted in 1988, the home was 14
feet closer to the street than it
should have been - exceeding
even the dimensions set in error,
said Archie Andrews,
Greensboro's chief of code en-
That's too much, the Greens-
boro Board of Adjustment de-
cided Mondav, and ordered the
house removed from or relocated
on the lot.
"On each thing that's issued
there's probably an error made
someplace or another Andrews
said. "We accept a small percent-
age of errors. But in this one case

An attorney for the owners,
James Shepherd, said they would
appeal the city's decision to
Guilford District Court.
The order is likely to be stayed
until the appeals case is deter-
mined, Andrews said.
Mauldin, a general contractor
with 25 years experience, and
Brenda Brown, a social worker for
15 years, planned to open a center
for elderly and handicapped
When he was issued the permit
for the home, Mauldin says, the
street it was built on, VVestdale
Place, did not reach Mauldin's
City inspectors told him the
street would not be extended -
eliminating ihenecd for a specific
distance between the "Structure
and property line, Mauldin says.
But then the inspectors issued a
stop-work order for the structure
because there was no street. In-
spectors told Mauldin the street
would have to be extended past
his property before the house
could open,but allowed construc-
tion to continue while the street
was extended, city officials said.
Neither side then realized the
building would be too close to the
street, officials said.
One neighborhood rcisdent
who does not want the home on
his small, dead-end street was
jubilant at the outcome.
"We're paying taxes for people
to protect us said Ed Lynch. "We

Plane wreck kills four,

Employees returned to work at a
manufacturing plant here Mon-
day despite a gaping hole in the
roof caused by a plane that
crashed and exploded in pieces
killing all four people aboard.
"Everything's back to normal,
believe it or not said a telephone
operator at the Jepson Bums
Corp. plant who declined to giver
her name.
The single-engine Piper Chero-
kee went down about 9:30 p.m.
Friday, soon after taking off from
nearby Smith-Reynolds Airport,
authorities said. It plunged
through the roof of a building that
houses the plant's sewing

wings, torn fusilage and other

remained on the scene Monday,
examining the plane for signs of
malfunction and talking to wit-
nesses who saw the aircraft fall
from the sky.
But he said it may be a week
before federal officials have com-
piled a preliminary report on the
accident. However, witnesses
have reported hearing the plane
sputter as it rose into the sky, lead-
ing investigators to speculate its
engine might have stalled.
Given the relatively small hole
in the manufacturing company's
roof and the downward angle of
the plane wreckage, the aircraft

Cencral Manager
This week's performance of
"Steel Magnolias closing the
1988 Summer Theatre season, is
the cherry on top of a delicious
summer season. This season has
provided a wide range of enter-
tainment from the powerful "Cat
on a Hot Tin Roof to the musical
revue of "Jerry's Girl the musi-
cal revelry of "Diamond Studs"
and the comic poignancy of this
final production.
All in all this has been a positive
and growing season for the thea-
ter, although technical problems
with the musicals must be solved
if producer Edgar Loessin wants
to keep musical fans happy.
After two years of reviewing
Summer Theatre productions and performance came not from Kim
a lifetime of watching the theater Zimmeror A.C. Weary, but North
grow, this season seemed to be a Carolina's own Graham Pollock,
year in which Loessin hit on a another broadway veteran,
succesful combination of "Steel Magnolias" with a cast
elements which could help the composed entirely of theater vet-
theater stand out even further erans, is another example of how
from other professional regional these pertormcrs are much more
theaters. suited for the ECU stage.
The first is the use of more regu- The trend is obvious. It may be
lar theater performers in the time for Loessin to consider shitt-
ing his star focus to the broadwa;
stage. While he may sacrifice the
box office draw oi a well-known
name, the bettered reputation and
increase in theater profcssioi
ism should more than make u
the loss.
Another positive trend in this
25th year of the theater is the
emphasis on Southern plays and
Take, for example, last year's playwrights. "Diamond Studs
productionof "BusStop Neither was written and first performed
of the show's "name" stars, Cath- m Chapel Hill, while Robert
erine Bach or Grant Snow (?),
could command the stage or the
audience's attention. It took an
outstanding performance by
ECU's own Donald Biehn,a stage
veteran, to make the show even
worth seeing.
And in this year's production of
"Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" the star
Harling's "Steel Magnolias is
concentrated on the life of south-
ern gentility. "Cat On a Hot Tin
Roof is one of Tennesee Wil-
liams' finest plays, and nothing
else needs to be said to establish
those credentials.
As a matter oi a fact, "Jerry's
Girls" was the only play withouta
true southern connection. This
emphasis on southern life and
culture is a something the theater
should continue to concentrate
on. It is more engaging for this
audience, and the theater can also
often provide a deeper under-
standing oi southern lifestyles
and heritage.

spotted the newspapers own

find out was there to take some of

The start of the show was with
two all acoustic songs that lulled
the crowd into a music uphoria.
Then on came the barrage that
brought the usual pathetically
pompous and notoriously Chapel

the rest of the show. One cannot
say this or that song was the best,
but merit should given to Whis-

was dedicated to NC's own

brought the mesmorized crowd
to a fevered frenzy.

rock and roll band and I didn't see
anyone at Susie's Thursday night,
who was not convinced of it.
Simply, Rosebud, who's from
Richmond, worked the crowd, of
over a one hundred, T into a
rockin roarin and drunkin'
frenzy. Susie's managment said it
was the largest crowd for a band
they have ever had.
Within five minutesof their first
set, the police were there telling
the band to turn it down while the
crowd wanted them to turn it up.
Even if you don't like to throw
down to a loud band, you would
at the very least had to say, "but
damn, they arc tight And damn,
with all the musical shifts, stops
and power drops they were tight.
Like the diversity of the bands
they have played with, driving
and crying, Live Skull and SNFU
just to name a few, Rosebud's
style has become nearly impos-
sible to pigeon hole. If your into
metal, punk or just good ol' R & R,
they are the band for you. Just like
Susie's attracts all kinds, so does
Rosebud. You can get a taste of

theater's production of "Cat On A

again that she can be the epitome
of the southern rich while main-
taining a humorous, human side
that gives a hint of the unusual to
her characters.
Debbie Shirley, a recent prod-
uct of the ECU theater depart-
ment, shows a wide range in de-
veloping the character of Annclle
from a nervous, distraught
women to a self-assured born-
again Christian.
In the two key dramatic roles,
Laura Linney as Shelby and
Amanda Muir as M'Lynn portray
well the emotions that play across
women's lives over the course of
such a stressful period. Linney
seems more adept and comfort-
able in her role, but that could be
due to the fact that Muir had to
step into her role as a last minute
replacement for Sara Croft. She
seemed a little tentative in the
beginning of the play, but ap-
peared more in the flow in time
for the powerful shift in the last

Robert Plant burns down the side
News editor
While the members of the band
quietly stirred on the darkened
stage, the crowd held Bicsa flicker
and screamed for the next song.
After three minutes of greased
anticipation - with the walls of the
arena strarting to sweat - the
audience released a surging moan
as the one and only voice erupted
in a slow, low drone with words
Legend Robert Plant, former
lead singer of super group Led
Zepplin, rocked the Greensboro
Coliseum last Tuesday with a
plethora of jams ranging from
songs of f his recent release - "Now
and Zen" to old Zeppelin classics.
Plant played for two hours after
opening band Cheap Trick fired
up the near sell-out crowd of
If one word could characterize
Plant's performance it would be -
teasing, but teasing with a good
connotation. Plant is quite aware
of the Zeppelin legacy that is now
embossed on a third generation of
Zep freaks.
And he uses this to his ad-
vatage. Plant injected familiar
phrases of Zep pumpers into his
row songs. The ending of "Cool
1 all One" is one cxamr Ic of this.
During the middle of one song,
Plant sang "Na Na Nana Nana
Nanana" - the chorus of "The
Ocean but didn't sing any
words from the song. In between
songs, Plant would say "Puuush"
in attempts to get the crowd to say
"Puuush" back. "Puuush" is a
phrase Plant has used in at least
two songs.
Dressed in a pink tee shirt, black
vest and black jeans, Plant tanta-
lized the women folk in the crowd
(Earl, you sexist). Electric fans
pushed his long blond hair in the
static air. During "I'm in the
Mood for a Mclodv some front-
rowers gave the singer a dozen of
"In the evening off of
Zeppelin's "In "Through the Out
Door was the first of four Zep
songs Plant played during the
show. Another Zep tune, "Misty
Mountain Hop brought the
house down in what this reviewer
felt was the best song of the con-
cert. Needless to say, the wooden
risers near the floor were bounc-
ing to the riffs of the "Misty
Mountain Hop
During the first encore, Plant
came out with "Communication
Breakdown Zep's first big hit off
the 1969 introduction of Led Zep-
plin One. Unfortunately, the
third generation of high school-
aged Zep rockers acted like they
had never heard the classic rune.
Plant also played Black
Country Woman" from "Physi-
cal Graffitti Guitarist Doug
Boyle, on his first tour to the U.S
played an acoustic guitar solo
which Jimmy Page would have
been proud of. Although Zeppe-
lin freaks in the crowd were
teased with bits of other songs,
they were throughly satisfied
with the four songs Plant choose
to perform.
His first set mainly consisted of
tunes on two of his solo albums,
"Pictures at Eleven" and "Prin-
ciples of the Moment "Other
Arms" and "The Big Log" were
notable highlights between the
singer's trashing of the mike.
Plant, with a voice texture
sometimes compared to blues
singers, throated John Lee
Hooker's blues jammer
"Dimples" and played the hell out
of the song's harmonica solo.
From his new release, Plant
made the crowd estatic with
"Why" and climaxed his encore
with the widely heard "Tall, Cool
One Keyboardist Phil
Johnstone, who is partly respon-
sible for the resurgence of the Zep
riffs in Plant's solo work, dis-
played that he can throw down
with vocals in the "Tall Cool
One Johnstone, who co-wrote
many of the songs on "Now and
Zen with his shaggy black hair
surprisingly looks like a young
Jimmy Page.
The concert brought out a senti-
mental clement of the Earl.
Throughout the concert Earl
combed the audience looking for
a girl friend of long ago who
turned me on to Robert Plant. All
the eye combing was to no avail,
but I felt like Cindy was there
somewhere in the coliseum,
somewhere as I dissected the
principles of the moment from
many years past.
Continued from page 7
On the downside, the theater
needs to find a way to solve the
technical problems that plagued
this year's musical productions. It
is simply inexcusable in a profes-
sional theater that the audience
sometimes cannot hear the vocals
and that the lead performers can-
not carry their own weight in the

all the freshness has gone?
Wrong. Here comes "Midnight

and better scenerv than Route 66.
What elevated "Midnight Run"
out of the ordinary is an ingen-
ious, witty script by George Gallo,
slam-bang direction by Martin
Brest and a superior cast, headed
by Robert DeNiro and Charles

He had entered the hospital at
the insistence of his wife. Manley
said he was being treated foralco-
hol abuse at Hazelden, and said
he attended Alcoholics Anony-
mous meetings upon his release.
During the Redskins' min-
icamp in May, after reading of the
$6-million contract Washington
gave free agent linebacker Wilber
Marshall, Manley implied he
would fake a hamstring injury

The team will being a nine-
game tour against teams of NBA
players on Aug. 7 in Providence,
R.I. and Thompson isn't sure how
many of the 20 players will be
around for those games.
On August 8,1988, the Chicago
Cubs host the Philadelphia Phil-
lies at Wrigley field. The game
will not be decisive in the pennant
race; it probably won't figure in
the playoff picture, yet it will be a
game of historic moment. This
date will be an easy one to remem-
ber for those who remember such
things: The Night The Lights
Went On At Wrigley.
Of all sporting vennes, perhaps
the baseball park most strongly
influences the games played
within its confines. Variable upon
variable add up to constitute the
oft-touted homeficld advantage.
Things such as prevailing winds,
playing surfaces, backgrounds a
hitter must read a pitch against,
and a host of others all combine to
give each park its own character,
itsown personality. Each ballpark
has ground rules unique to itself.
For time out of mind Wrigley
Field has operated under two
rules: a ball lost in the ivy on the
outfield walls is a double, and any
game which runs into darkness
will be called.
On August 8, Wrigley Field
comes out of the dark ages. At a
projected cost of $5 million, six
towers, connected by 33 miles of
cable and conduit, will support a
12,000 watt, 48-volt Common-
wealth Edison system which will
beam 250 footcandlesof light onto
the infield and another 150
footcandlcs into the outfield. Af-
ter 74 years at the corner of Clark
and Addison Streets in down-
town Chicago, the Cubs will fi-
nally play a home game at night.
As innovations go, this is but a
minor example of Technology
Permeates Sport. (Opposing
viewpoints may substitute "Per-
meates" with either "Enhances"
or "Invades"). In ballpark after
ballpark, grass has given way to
artificial turf. The proliferation of
the covered stadium allows base-
ball (or anything else, for that
matter) lo be played year-round,
in any weather, at any profitable
time of day. Where the rumble of
thunder has been shut out by the
hum of 60-cycle aternating cur-
rent, the raincheck has been re-
placed by the dividend check.
But not all the rationale bchinu
the Wrigley improvement points
toward profit. Night baseball at
Wrigley Field will give the9-to-5
working Cubs fan the opportu-
nity to see the home team only
eight times this season and eight-
een next year. This additional
demographic appeal, while con-
venient for the day worker, can
hardly be based on need for a fran-
chise whose season attendance
topped 2 million last weekend
against the Dodgers. Still, one
must wonder, wherc's the thrill of
seeing the Cubs during the week
without playing hooky? Isn't an
afternoon's truancy at the
ballpark a forgiveable sin?
Many neighborhood residents
roundly oppose the Wrigley im-
provement. They fear the rise in
mayhem and general rambunc-
tiousness that wil probably ac-
company 30-plus thousand base-
ball fans into their neighborhood
after dark. A major concern is
noise. The din issuing forth from a
late-inning thriller could well
approximate the roar of a low-
flying jet to a light sleeper living
just one street away. When Harry
Caray, perennial voice of the
Cubs, leads the crowd in the tradi-
tional version of "Take Mc Out To
The Ball Game will the neigh-
bors throw things and shout,
"Keep it down, don't you know
it's late!?"
Baseball at Wrigley Field has
been played in a fashion funda-
mentally unchanged since the

and grass. In daylight. Although

Tarheel's Jordan stung by Proposition 48
North Carolina football coach
Mack Brown says a year away
from football will provide all-
state running back Randy Jordan
with a chance to solve his aca-
demic woes.
Jordan, a member of The Asso-

season, is ineligible for oompei-

meet the necessary academic re-

The bridge program is open to
all students who wish to get a

Negotiations between Charlotte Hornets
and Kurt Rambis snag on salary dispute
CIIARLOTTE (AP) � Negotia-
tions between Kurt Rambis and
the Charlotte Hornets are ex-
pected to be completed in the next
two days, sources have told The
Charlotte Observer.
The sources, who asked not to
be identified, said the only re-
maining hurdle is salary for the
30-ycar-old player, who has been
with the Los Angeles Lakers for
the past seven seasons. The two
sides have agreed on a four-year
deal, all of which the Hornets
have offered to guarantee.
One source said the difference
in dollars between the two sides is
not large, but the same source .lid
that wasn't a sure sign the deal
could be made.
The 6-foor-8 Rambis was the
Lakers' starting power forward
for 4 12 seasons before his play-
ing time dwindled the past two
seasons. Rambis said in Charlotte
on Friday that he expects to be a
