Med school nationally ranked
by Journal of Family Medicine
ECU News Bureau
East Carolina University
School of Medicine ranked fourth
nationally in the percentage of its
medical students who chose fam-
ily medicine as a specialty, ac-
cording to a survey of residency
choices for the Class of 1987.
The study, carried in the Sep-
temberOctober issue of the Jour-
nal of Familv Medicine, examined
the medical specialty choices of
15,872 physicians who entered
their first year of residency train-
ing in the 1987-88 academic year.
Most of the physicians graduated
from medical schools in the
spring of 1987. Nationally, about
12 percent of the graduates chose
to specialize in family medicine.
At ECU, 21 of 67 graduates, or 31
percent, opted for family medi-
That figure positioned ECU
behind only three of the other 125
medical schools in the country.
Oral Roberts University placed
43.5 percent of its graduates in
family medicine programs;
Southern Illinois University, 433
percent; and Wright State Univer-
sity in Dayton, Ohio, 33 percent.
Dr. Rafael C. Sanchez, vice
chairman of the ECU Department
of Family Medicine, described
ECU's performance as "a notable
"It SpeatSWen on behalf of
our school fulfilling its mission

said Sanchez.

None of the top four schools
produced as many family doctors
as the University of Minnesota,
which sent 68 graduates into
family medicine. But they repre-
sented only about 25 percent of
the school's 266-member class.
Hardline taken by Atwater
President-elect George Bush
chose Lee Atwater to pilot the
Republican Party into the 1990s, it
was a warning and an opportu-
nity for the Democrats.
Atwater is the nation's lead-
ing practitioner of the "politics
ain't bcanbag" school of cam-
paigning, the man who made
rapist Willie Horton a household
name and turned the Pledge of
Allegiance into an attack on Mi-
chael Dukakis.
There was nothing pretty or
ennobling about the strategy
Atwater pursued as manager of
thc Bush presidential campaign.
But it worked and his candi-
date carried 40 states and will
become the 41st president of the
United States on Jan. 20.
Dukakis and his handlers
consistently underestimated
Atwater and his tactics.
In the euphoric spring and
summer days when the Massa-
chusetts governor had double-
digit leads in every poll, Demo-
crats generally shrugged off the
attacks on the Massachusetts
prison furlough program and the
questions raised about Dukakis'
veto of legislation to require pub-
lic school teachers to lead the
Pledge of Allegiance.
They were wrong. Atwater
had a far better understanding of
Dukakis' vulnerabilities than did
the Democrats.
From the initial reaction of
Democratic state party leaders,
they don't intend to make the
mistake of underestimating the
young political tactician from
South Carolina.
"We're ready to take on Lee
Atwater and those who create a
pit bull style of politics said Rick
Wiener, chairman of the Michi-
gan Democratic Party.
"I don't intend to get out-
muscled said Bob blagle, the
Texas Democratic Party Chair-
man. "1 don't intend to let them
okav that kind of game with us
and win it
The Democrats were sending
a clear message: We can get just as
tough and negative as Atwater.
They also were jumping at an
opportunity to make Atwater
himself a political issue.
Democratic Party chairman
Paul G. Kirk Jr. was asked if he
looked forward to working with
Atwater, the way he had often
cooperated with current GOP
chairman Frank Fahrenkopf.
"I want to be fair to Lee Atwa-
ter, if that's not being too naive
he said. "I don't want Lee Atwa-

One idea that got a lot of fa-
vorable attention at the meeting of
the Association of State Demo-
cratic Chairs was to hold a lottery
to determine which states would
lead off the process.
While not endorsing the pro-
posal, national party chairman
Paul G. Kirk Jr. called it an idea
worth considering.

Drug tests will be on the increase
federal employee drug-testing
program instituted by President
Reagan will quadruple in size
next vear unless stopped in its
tracks by legal challenges.
An estimated 50,000employ-
ees were tested this vear, mainly
law enforcement officers, trans-
portation inspectors and civilians
working for the military.
But the program is expected
to test some 21X1000 members of
the 3.1 million federal work force
in 1 S, according to the National
Institute of Drug Abuse.
About 150,000 to 170,000 of
those will be tested at random and
come from a pool of some 500,000
workers in postions deemed sen-
sitive by their agency chiefs.
The remainder will be tested
after accidents or when supervi-
sors believe there is reasonable
suspicion of drug use.
Those figures do not include
infold numbers of federal job
applicants who will be tested if
applying for sensitive positions,
nor do they reflect the Transporta-
tion Department's far-reaching
requirement to test nearly four
million private sector transporta-
tion workers from truckers to air-
line pilots. That program would
begin late next year for businesses
employing more than 50 workers.
Those with fewer than 50 would
have two years to get ready for
Most suits against testing,
many filed bv unions, are in fed-
eral district or appeals courts.

fore the Supreme Court, but nei-

intrusive, uncontitutional search.

Abuse's Office of Workplace Ini-

The testing program has its
orgin in a Sept. 15,1986, presiden-
tial order directing that federal
workplaces be drug-free. Besides
testing, other components in
dude training supervisors to rec-
ognize symptonms of drug abuse
among employees, and counsel-
ing programs at federal agencies.
The counseling is mandatory
for those who test positive. Work-
ers can also make voluntary use of
the programs, as can members of
their families.
Once entering the counseling
program after a positive test, most
workers will suffer no discipli-

PTL ministry's bankruptcy trus-
tee says he never expected Jim
Bakker to succeed in buying back
the ministry, but that he wanted
to give Bakker an opportunity to
" show his followers what he truly

server newspaper reported today.
M.C "Red" Benton outlined

other little-known groups that

Bakker's bid fell apart when
he couldn't prove that his sup-
posed overseas backers existed.
Also, Thomas Brereton ,a for-
mer FBI agent hired in September
to investigate all bids, told the
newspaper that information on
several PTL bids has been turned
over to the FBI and other law en-

oped property, satellite television

But since April, Benton said,
onlv four bidders have had the
financial resources required:
Charlotte businessman George
Shinn; a group of Washington and
New York investors called Capi-
tal Management Associates; real
estate executive Peter Thomas of
Vancouver; and Toronto investor
Stephen Mernick.
Only Thomas, who bid $70
million in cash, and Mernick, who
offered a financed bid of $115
million, remain in the picture, al-
though U.S. Bankruptcy judge
Rufus Reynolds rejected the
terms of both men's offers during
an auction last week. Reynolds
has set another auction for Dec.
12. Proceeds will go to satisfy the
ministry's debts, which could
exceed $130 million.
In the past three weeks,
groups called Holy Celebration,
Rhapsody of Freedom, Juris
Christian Association, Lcxalt Uni-
versity and BLW Enterprises have
said they are readv to pay more
than $100 million for PTL.
But none could show Benton
on Thursday the $1 million in fi-
nancing. Reynolds last week said
any newcomers in the bidding
must prove they have.
One unsuccessful bidder was
Jerry Sinclair, with a gTOup called
Restored Partners and a former
guest on Bakker's old "PTL Club"
TV show.
"He showed us a loan he
professed to be $150 million
Benton said, "but it turned out to
be only that he had made applica-
tion for a loan from some financial
institution, and the application
hadn't even been considered
Restored Partners was
Sinclair's second attempt at PTL
bidding. In September, he was a
key player in Bakker's much-pub-
licized $77 million bid. The
money supposedly was to come
from unidentified overseas inves-
Bakker's attorney, Jim Toms
of Hendersonville, said Sinclair
told Bakker a man named Louis
Pihakis of Pensacola, Ha could
arrange such a loan.
Then Charlotte television sta-

had served three prison terms on
various fraud charges. Pihakis's

Here is a summary from Ben-
ton of some other bids:
- American Mortgage and
Guaranty Co. of Brecksville,
Ohio. In June, it offered $170 mil-
lion and promised to deposit $500
million more in New York banks.
Benton said: "I think they
thought they had some overseas
money lined up, but they never
did produce anything
- B.B. Graham, Dale Ritter and
others from Oklahoma, who of-
fered $150 million. "Thcv were
chasing money in Sweden and
Japan Benton said, "and every
time they'd call me, they had
signed more papers and were on
the verge of getting it
- Gavin Morehu, a New Zeal-
ander who promised $200 mil-
lion. "I never could take him seri-
ously Benton said. "The first
time I talked to him, he suppos-
edly contacted me from his jet air
plane He said he was going to
fly into Charlotte. But, lo and
behold, he came driving in, say-
ing the airplane needed repairs
- Juris Christian Association,
which offered $114 million. Listed
as its "managing trustee" is Ever-
ett Thorin, who at the time of the
bid was awaiting sentencing on
an unrelated forgery charge. He's
now in the Union County, Ore
Lexail University, whose
$114 million bid was identical to
Juris Christian's. The bidders also
used the same Columbia lawyer,
William Edwards. He has refused
to comment on any connection
between the two bids. A Lexalt
spokesman, the Rev. Edward
Brown of Atlanta, said lcxalt is

A corporation has two ways it
can raise additional maney. It can
lbsue more stock or it can go into
debt through bonds. But stocks
and bonds are not treated equally
for tax purposes.
A corporation pays its share-
holders in dividends. It pays its
bondholders in interest pay-
ments. At the end of the year, a
corporation can deduct its inter-
est payments form its federal in-
come tax. It cannot deduct divi-
dend payments. Thus, for tax
purposes, debt is better than eq-
And in a leveraged buyout,
debt is king.
For example, assume that F.
Ross Johnson, Kholberg Kravis

Nabisco. The company already
has about $5 billion in debt. So the
new company would owe $26
RJR Nabisco makes about
$2.6 billion a year in profits before
taxes and interest. All of that
profit could be deducted as inter-
est payment on the $26 billion
worth of bonds.
So the new company shows
no profit, and no profit means no
federal income tax. For as long as
it takes the new company to pay
off its debt, the deductions will

Plus-minus system likely to do more harm than good
As part of its continuing effort to
raise ECU's academic standards and
get the college treated more seri-
ously, the Credits Committee is con-
sidering the inclusion of plusses and
minuses as modifications to the
grades on student grading reports.
Predictably, many students are
against the proposed system. Most
of the plan's critics charge that it will
tend to bring down their grade-
point averages.
This is indeed possible, and in
fact it seems to have happened at
other colleges where such plans
were introduced. At NC State, for
example, the overall grade-point
averages dropped so significantly
that State decided to scrap the pro-
Another school, the University
of South Carolina, experienced a
similar problem and changed the
system to allow the recording of
plusses but not of minuses. Given
that the purpose of the system is to
provide a clearer picture of an
individual's performance, record-
ing the plusses but not the minuses
seems only slightly more sensible
than recording a batter's hits but not
his strikeouts.
It is certainly true that recording
plusses and minuses would give a
clearer picture than not recording
them. But if thafs the point, why not
simply record a student's percent-
age score in each class? After all, that
would be better than bothenv with
the plus and minus nonsense, and it
would be more accurate too.
The plus-minus system really
seems to be a solution looking for a
problem. The accuracy and fairness
of the current grading system is al-
ready questionable, as grades reflect
how well a student performed in
class as opposed to how much the
student learned. Recording pluses
and minuses will probably exacer-
bate this unfairness more often than
relieve it.
The bottom line: o cne has
claimed that the plan is yet in its final
form. It will not be instituted tomor-
row. Regardless, the plus-minus
system, if it is ever introduced, will
likely do more harm than good. Un-
less someone comes up with a bril-
liant modification that would re-
solve its problems, let the plan drop.

PLO declares liberty
To the editor:
Early last Tuesday an historic
decision was made. The Palestine
Liberation Organization declared
independence in the occupied terri-
tories: the West Bank and the Gaza
strip. The P.L.O. also condemned
and renounced all forms of terrorism
and recognized the right of the state
of Israel to exist.
Certainly, these are major and
truly significant concessions made
by the Palestinian people. However,
this does not solve the Palestinian
problem, yet. So much depends on
the reaction of the world community
and especially Israel.
Ironically, these concessions
come at a time when the Israeli far
conservative and fundarndntalist
movements are on the nse. Hope-
fully, this will not prevent peace from
occurring in the most troubled and
holy parts of this world. Clearly, this
is the most progressive and hopeful
initiative to solving one of the most
brutal and demoralizing conflicts
this generation has seen.
It is also clear that any successful
initiative of such significance must
have the backing of the United States.
Hence, a conscious and decisive ef-
fort has to be undertaken in this coun-
try to ensure the legalization of
peace; legalize peace. Let us not for-
get the ill fortune of the Palestinian
people, and all people of the Middle
Let all people, of all denomina-
tions, of all nationalities, of all politi-
cal persuasions join in the search for
creative, innovative, realistic, and
peaceful solutions and implementa-
tions, thereof, to the Middle East
tragedy. Let us join together in this
effort. In the Palestinian people's
declaration for peaceful self-determi-
nation we have a start!

Terms defined
To the editor:
In the past there has been a grow-
ing confusion over the terms conser-
vative and liberal. To defend the true
meaning and spirit of both of these
terms, they need to be clarified and
evaluated objectively, and in rela-
tionship to American politics.
As I watched the election cover-
age I saw much use of the terms
"conservative" and "liberal with-
out much regard as to what these two
labels were being used to imply. It
was clear from the campaigns that we
must all identify with being liberal or�
conservative, as if these terms
formed some polarity around our
country's politics. But what is "con-
servative" and "liberal and can
they even be compared to each other?
Conservative. This term is a rela-
tive index to the present. In politics it
refers to the idea that the way of life of
the past is adequate and that the
policies of the past can be used to
handle the problems of the present
and future.
An example of conservative
thinking in internal affairs would be
that of moral preservation (i.e. the
country would be better off with
tighter regulatory control in pornog-
raphy, drugs, and other things which
deviate with the moral norms of the
past). The term conservative, in
summation implies acceptance of the
past as an ideal, through continu-
Conservative is also a global
term. It can be used to describe an
entire group of otherwise unrelated
policies, such as foreign affairs poli-
cies regarding the Soviet Union as
necessarily evil and an internal pol-
icy banning pornography on moral
grounds. But it is important to re-
member that the term conservative is
relative, not fixed. What may seem
like drastic change today could easily
be conservative tomorrow.
Liberal. Somehow this term has
been linked to releasing murderers
from prison, abolishing prayer in
school, and communism. ! would
venture to say this isa result of adver-
tising campaigns by the Republican
party. In uth "liberal is a term
which :mp'ies a series of policies in-
trodu-� by the Democratic party
intended to give underprivileged
people 2 fair chance at success, at the
expense of tl -genera!
An example of this would be job
assistance funded by income taxes.
Liberal is not a global word like con-
servative. Liberal' cannot be appliei
to a broad gTOup of policies advocat-
ing change, where conservative
could be applied to a group of poli-
cies advocating continuation.
Liberal is not a term used to de-
scribe change as a whole, but merely
one facet of a possible course of
change. Liberal is very specific and
assumes that all people are basicallv
the same and that the underprivi
leged are so because of their environ-
ment, that if they were given a chance
they could improve their situation
Liberal proposes to give them this
chance in a variety of welfare and job
training programs, as well as bv in
creasing the general availability of
From this I hope it is apparent
why comparing the terms liberal and
conservative is impossible, and that
it is possible to advocate change and
not be a liberal, or to be neither con-
servative or liberal.

Election results show campaign competence
The New Republic
How close does an election have to be before the
loser and his "philosophy" can no longer legiti-
mately be accused of being "outside the main-
stream?" You wouldn't know from the mythology
that surrounds the elections of 1980 and 1984 that
more than two out of five voters chose the Democrat
in each case.
In fact, you would think from all the talk of
Ronald Reagan's "49 state" victory four years ago
that anyone who supported Walter Mondale be-
longs in a museum. The Electoral College system
may or may not performa useful function by turning
close outcomes into definitive results. But it clearly
performs a disservice to honest political discourse
by enlarging the winner's claim to manifest destiny.
Surely, though, Michael Dukakis' very respect-
able 46 percent to 54 percent finish against George
Bush, combined with Democratic successes in Con-
gress, ought to spare us a lot of heavy theorizing
abou t the deeper meaning of his defeat. A loss of this
modest dimension is not the work of grand historical
forces. Destiny doesn't speak in such a demure
A "philosophy" that attracts 23 voters out of 50
may still be a minority taste, but it is more "main-
stream" than the best-selling breakfast cereal or the
year's biggest hit movie. President-elect Bush ought
to keep in mind that almost half his constituents �
as he himself chose to characterize their vote �
apparently love the thought of murderers frolicking
in the streets, oppose the Pledge of Allegiance (
the flag itself), want a weak America, and are dying
to pay more taxes. Read their lips.
It is a convention of political commentary that
matters such as the slope of a man's shoulders or the
slickness of his commercials that are of vital impor-
tance up to the moment of the election and irrelevant
immediately afterward. Once the result is known,
the campaign with its uncertainties and its emphasis
on minor matters fades away and inevitability
stakes its retrospective claim. But this is one cam-
paign that did matter, with a final result well within
what might be called the margin of affectability.
Dukakis was right after all. In the end, the elec-
tion was not about idealogy, it was about compe-
tence: If Bush hadn't run a more skilled campaign, he
wouldn't have won.
In the last days before the election, conservatives
began an effort to rewrite history about the nature of
that skilled campaign. The effort took the form of
what lawyers call arguing in the alternative. Bush
apologists say: (a) he didn't fight dirty; (b) American
politics has always been dirty; (c) the Democrats
started it last year.
It's true that liberals ran a cheap campaign last
year against Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork.
But that campaign was, in turn, modeled on tech-
niques developed by conservatives. The origin of
1980s-style slimeball politics was the National Con-
servative Political Action Committee effort that dis-
lodged six liberal senators in 1980.
Like many, I feel I've shouted myself hoarse on
the ridiculous subjects of prison furloughs and the
flag. The successful recipe was to find an obscure
matter, subtly misrepresent it, then declare that the
resulting "issue" actually touches on larger ques-
tions of "values Well, it doesn't. Soon we'll look
back and wonder how on earth we could have
squandered our valuable public disclosure on mat-
ters so irrelevant to our national well-being.
This is not to excuse Dukakis. If Bush's victory
was within his margin of demagoguery, Dukakis'
defeat was within his margin of ineptitude. But
Dukakis was trapped, not so much by George Bush
as by Ronald Reagan. On the most important genu-
ine issues, Reagan has trained the American voters
to be hypocrites. It would take an extraordinary
politician, which Dukakis isn't, to succeed in break-
ing the ground rules Reagan has set. Mondale tried
to break them and failed. Dukakis adhered to them
and almost succeeded.
The obvious example is the deficit. Dukakis diet
his best to persuade voters that our prosperity is
based on a shaky foundation of foreign borrowing.
And ihe voters are persuadable on this point. But
ui; kr the Reagan Rules�which Dukakis obeyed �
you're not allowed to propose any serious solution,
either raising taxes or cutting expenditures. That
robbed Dukakis of his best issue.
On foreign oolicy, too, Reagan has taught
Americans to believe that "strength" and "tough-
ness" can be had at vv:ually no cost 'n money or int
blood. That mkes it impossible to argue in anyi
particular case (the defense buildup, the contrast
Star Wars) either that the cost must be paid or that '
not worth paying.
When Bush denounced the 'liberal Democratic
grain embargo" that followed the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan, Dukakis couldn't defend even this tinj
sacrifice for a "tough" foreign policy. Under th
Reagan Rules, he had to say lamel v ihat he oppos
the grain embargo as well.
Winning an election under the Reagan Ruk
using the Bush Tactics, is one thing. Governing afU
such a victory is another. Reagan faced a cowe
opposition; Bush faces one that is feisty and resent-
nil. Reagan got the voters addicted to hypocrisy!
Bu?h must try to cure them And he won't havJ

A presidential commission,
several congressional panels and
a multitude of independent re-
searchers all have failed to satisfy
the public's curiosity about who
killed the president.
Conspiracy theories have
implicated everyone for Fidel
Castro to the KGB to the mob,
while many recent televsion
documentaries and books� both
fiction and nonfiction� argue
that Lee Harvey Oswald acted
alone, a stance taken by the War-
ren Commission in the first offical
assassination investigation back
in 1964.
The House Select Committee
on Assassination, formed in 1976,
conducted the last significant
government inquiry into
Kennedy's death. The panel
agreed with the Warren Commis-
sion findings in 1964 that two
shots fired by Lee Harvey Oswald
from the sixth floor of the Texas
Book Depository wounded and
killed the president as he rode
past Dealy Plaza in Dallas.
But the committee also de-
cided that a second gunman
probably fired at Kennedy that
day, making his death the result
of a probable conspiracy.
Based largely on acoustic
studies of police radio transmis-
sions at the time of the shooting
and some corroborating witness
testimony, the committee also
decided that a total of four shots
were fired, three by Oswald and a
fourth fired fromthe area of the
"grassy knoll" overlooking the
president's route.
The House Select
Committee's final report vindi-
cated earlier critics of the Warren
Commission who tried to show
that Oswald did not act alone. The
report concluded there probably
was a conspiracy to kill the presi-
But the committee couldn't
determine the nature, scope and
breadth of the conspiracy. And so
it fueled new flames.
During the past 25 years,
hundreds of books and articles
have been written about the con-
spiracy to kill Kennedy.
The conspriacy theorists pro-
pose numerous scenarios on the
conspirators: The Mafia, the CIA,
the CIA acting with anti-Castro
Cubans and mobsters. Castro,
two gunmen, three gunmen.
Oswald and a second assassin on
the "grassy knoll
Preyer, a Democrat who left
Congress in 1980 and teaches at
the University of North Carolina
at Greesboro, said the committee
was able to tie a Mafia figure with
links to Cuba to both Oswald and
Jack Ruby, who shot Oswald two
days after his arrest.
The committee also found
other evidence linking Oswald to
organized crime and to the anti-
Castro Cuban movement, al-
though such evidence did not fig-
ure significantly in the
committtee's final report.
Author David Scheim in his
1988 book "Contract on America:
The Mafia Murder of President
John F. Kennedy" uses such evi-
dence to build an even stronger
case for Oswald's ties to both
This month, Oswald's widow
told the Ladies Home Journal that
her husband was not acting alone
when he killed the president.
Marina Oswald Porter said she
now believes her husband "was
caught between two powers�
organized crime and the govern-
ment Oswald himself told Dal-
las police that he was just a patsy
or fall guy for others.
Later, Ruby would beg Chief
Justice Earl Warren to bring him
to Washington because he
couldn't tell all he knew about the
Furthermore, he says, there is still
no adequate explanation about
why a door was left unlocked
leading to the basement of the
Dallas police station, which Ruby
entered in order to get into posi
tion to shoot Oswald.
Consequently, Preyer be-
lieves there's much more to the
Mafia links with Oswald and
Ruby than the committee might
have considered.
Preyer also belie es it mav be
possible to find out wl io may have
acted with Oswald.

Fishbone, an industrial punk band,
does the Fat Albert, kills Freddy
Staff Fi�hboncr
A couple outside the Attic
asked if we knew anything about
the band playing tonight. We said
sure, "It's Fishbone, a fast and
furious industrial punk band
rhey said, 'Do they do cov-
ers? We told them no, and they
left to seek more acceptable ways
to spend Friday night. We went in
and watched Fishbone do TWO
covers, their version oi Curtis

the theme from 'Fat Albert and

they'd do "Fat Albert"? Fishbone
is known for oii the wall stuff, but
the only thing that could have
surprised me more would have
been a cover of "The jeffersons"
theme song.
1 wasn't surprised by the rest
of the show. Flaying to an almost
packed house, Fishbone alter-
nately rocked and stunned the
audience. From the speed metal
"Subliminal Facism" to the acous-
tic finale "Change the "coalition
against tradition" (as their press
release names them), proved their
reputation as the hottest live act
around to be justified.
Starting out with a couple of
fast-paced tracks from their new
Lp, "Truth and Soul they sent
the crowd into a pogoing, slam-
ming jumble. A few brave souls
continued to perform stage dives
throughout the show, even after
bouncers escorted unruly partiers
to the cold outdoors.
But since one of the Fishbon-
ers kept diving too, it was hard to
condemn those enthusiastic di-
vers caught up in the party mood.
Fishbone kept the crowd dancing
the entire night. Even those near
the bar were inspired to a few
knee swivels.
After a slower number and
then the now infamous "Fat Al-
bert" interlude, the band and the
crowd began shaking the floor-

Implied morals are thrown

hard road is the right one. It's
wrong to dislike someone be-

Throwing these platitudes
into movies aimed at children is
not only sneaky, but useless. Just
once I'd like to see a movie tell
kids that sometimes, no matter
how hard you listen to your par-
ents and how hard you work,
you're still gonna get screwed �
just like in real life.
The two dinosaur fights in the
movie (and what else did we go to
see it for? Dinosaurs weren't, as a
rule, the most polite inhabitants
this planet's ever hosted) were
almost totally done off-screen.
Sure, there were a couple of
good tail-whackings, and a good
cliff dive, but the rest of it was
done in the shadows or during an
earthquake that shook the camera
lens so much, you couldn't tell
what was happening.
And the cliff dive didn't even

15 minutes later, whereas the
movie never did make clear what

But she died bloodlessly!
I wish people producing
movies, TV shows and books for

not that stupid. They know that if
they get in a fight, somebody is
going to walk (or crawl) away
The animation, when it
wasn't being obscured by earth-
quakes and wavy lines intended
to be water currents, was great.
Shots of Littlefoot's mom craning
her head up and down showed
the amount of work that went into
the film.
But if you feel cheated at the
end. as I ittlefoot rermnesces over

Anthony Thompson leads ECU defense
Pirates crush the Bearcats
Feature Editor
Wrapping it with stifling de-
fense and rambling running
game, the ECU football team gave
Coach Art Baker a going-away
present Saturday as the Pirates
crushed the University of Cincin-
nati 49-14 to finish the season with
a 3-8 mark.
The hard-hitting Pirate de-
fense, led by inside linebacker An-
thonv Thompson, created nine
Cincinnati turnovers and held the
Bearcats to two second half touch-
Thompson, who had seven
tackles and recovered three turn-
overs, set up two ECU touch-
downs by diving on fumbles deep
in Cincinnati terrritory.
" don't know what it is but in
the last two games, we have re-
covered a lot of turnovers. It
might be luck or it might be be-
cause we have played well. 1 don't
know, but I'll take them anyway I
can get them' Baker said.
Sparked by the takeaways,
the ECU's option offense ran flu-
idly on the rain-soggy turf of
Nippert Stadium before a wet
crowd of 2,364.
The running attack was high-
lighted by Tim James as he ran for
his first hundred-yard game in
picking up 156 yards on 29 carries.
Playing in last game as a Pirate,
James also scored two touch-
downs in the roll.
According to the Daily Re-
flector, James said, "It was fun,
mainly because we were winning.
I just love when I can get past
those linemen and linebackers
and get out with those defensive
In setting up the game's first
score, freshmen linebacker Luke
Fisher, who recovered a fumble in
the first quarter, intercepted a
Don Hoog pass at the Cincinnati
16. Reggie McKinney scored two
plays later after Tim James
thrashed to the 3 with a 13 yard
pick-up. The Imperatoextra point
failed. ECU led by six.
The ECU defense held the
Bearcats on the next series of plays
and forced the Bearcats to punt to
the ECU 35. Keyed by a 27-yard
keeper by quarterback Travis
Hunter on a third and nine play,
ECU had the ball on the Cincin-
nati 37.
Two plays later, McKinney
received the touchdown call
again as he rambled 29 yards for
the score. McKinney ran success-
fully for conversion as the Pirates
lead by 14.
During the next defense se-
ries for the Pirates, Linebacker
Anthony Thompson recovered a
Cincinnati fumble at Bearcat 31.
Quarterback Charlie Libretto,
who gave starter Travis Hunter a
breather, ran for 22 yards to the
inside the 10. After James ran to
the 1, Libretto scored the third TD
of the half for the Pirates.
As with most of the ECU
games during the 1988 campaign.
Libretto and Hunter shared the
quarterback position throughout
the game. Libretto, whose ability
to run the option had been criti-
cized, ran for 83 yards. Hunter,
who is more noted for his rushing,
passed for 81 yards and two sec-
ond half touchdowns.

Singletary, a junior from Fay-

start of the fourth quarter, ECU
led 42-7.
The 47-14 victory marks the
final game for Coach Art Baker
who resigned two weeks ago. In
his last press conference, Baker
gave his players credit.
"I'm so appreciative to this
group of players. We went
through the month of October
with more asked of us than any
other ECU team. We bounced
back from this and had two great
wins over Temple and Cincin-
nati Baker said. ,
Baker said he feels ECU has
the nucleus of a good ball club.
"I feel like we have made
great strides with our program.
We'll return 35 of the top 44 play-
ers next year. Whoever has this
team next year will have a lot of
talent to work with Baker said.
After replacing Ed Emory in
1984, Baker compiled a record of
14-32. The Pirates' best season
under Baker was 1987 as ECU
went 5-6 after defeating N.C. State
in the season opener.

Perimeter shooting � or the
lack of it � ultimately sent ECU to
a disappointing 8-20 record a year
ago. With the addition of five
promising freshmen and one
transfer, Pierson hopes her sec-
ond ECU team has all its weak-
nesses in check.
"During the off-season we
looked to improve on our outside
shooting, rebounding and quick-
ness said Pierson, who enters
her second year at ECU and 11th
"We were pleased with the
group we signed. All could make
an impact this year. We also re-
turn six players who will only im-
prove after a year of learning my
system under their belts
Among the returning starters
is 6-2 senior center Gretta O'Neal
Savage, who is the leading return-
ing scorer (10.7 per game) and
rebounder (5.6 rpg.) on the team.
Savage could be a candidate for
the All-Colonial Athletic Associa-
tion team.
Also back are senior wings
Chris O'Connor (7.3 ppg) and
Pam Williams (5.6 ppg), who last
year teamed to form ECU's only
three-point shot threats. At the
K)int, 5-3 junior speedster Irish
amilton (4.2 ppg 3.6 assists)
will battle newcomers to keep her
starting assignment.
Joining Savage up front will
be either 6-2 senior Rose Miller, 6-
1 Sarah Gray, who was red-
shirted last season or 6-1 Kim
DuPree, who transferred in mid-
season last year from North Caro-
lina Central and will become eli-
gible in December.
Six-foot-two Sandra Grace
gives the Lady Pirates five players
over the 6-foot mark.
The tallest of the newcomers
is 5-foot-ll Kathy Addison, a
Fayetteville Westover High prod-
uct who could help solve some of
ECU's rebounding woes this year.
"No starting job is guaran-
teed Pierson said. "That will
make pre-season practice a little
more intense this year
The most talented of the
newcomers may be 5-9 Tonya
Hargrove, who can play the big
guard or either forward position.
Hargrove was the Raleigh area 4 A
player of the year last season.

Bridgets qualifies for NCAA's
Men tie longest swim streak
Sports I dilur
It was an incredible weekend
for the East Carolina swimming
and diving program.
Not only have the men, who
now stand at 5-0, tied their longest
winning streak as a result of their
win over UNC-Charlotte, but
Meredith Bridgers of the
women's squad has earned a bid
in the NCAA championship meet.
The men and women com-
peted in the dual meet against
UNC-Charlotte Saturday at
Minges Aquatic Center and both
squads easily came out on top
taking top honors in nearly every
event. The men finished with a
score of 135-83 and the women,
who now stand at 4-1, won 140-95.
This makes the men unde-
feated going into the next home
meet against Richmond on Dec. 2
and a victory over the Spiders
would set a new winning streak
for the Pirates.
The excitment for the women
came from none other than Bridg-
ers who, as a result of her per-
formance in the 200-yard
breaststroke, not only set a pool
and varsity record, but qualified
her for the NCAA championship
meet to be held in March. Her time
of 2:19.04 easily cleared the
2:19.21 qualifying time and made
her the first female to make Divi-
sion 2-A cuts in the history of East
Carolina swimming.
"Meredith can give the swim
program national ranking if she
can come in the top 16 at the
NCAA'sl Head Coach Rick
Kobe said.
Kobe is optimistic about
Bridger's performance. "She
qualified very earlv. She has a
great opportunity to be all-Ameri-
Kobe is so pleased with
Bridger's performance that he
thinks "she can be in the top
eight" when she swims in the
NCAA meet.
The ECU divers fared nicely
against UNC-C as well. Sherry
Campbell earned the top honors
in both the one and three-meter
diving events while Cynthia Cor-
dova took second in both events.
Pat Smith was the one to
watch for the men as he placed
first in the one and three-meter
Raymond Kennedy gave a
fine performance in the 200-yard
breaststroke as his time of 2:14.05
was enough to earn him a first
place. Next in line wasjohn Sprin-
ger to take second in 2:17.32.
Kennedy was also awarded a
first place honor in the 200-yard
freestyle when he finished in
1:47.91. Andy Johns then fol-
lowed securing a second place
spot in 1:49.09.
The word sweep was in order
for men's 500-yard freestyle when
Andy Jeter (4:48.47), Mark Cook
(453.33) and Andy Johns (4 57.40)
all touched the wall one after the
e men had anothei sweep
in the 200-yard indi idual medley
when Todd Christensen led the
Pirate pack with his time of
2:02.83. Right behind him was
Mark O Brien taking second in
2:04.80 and rounding up third
place was Springer in a time of
The men s final sweep came
in the 400-yard medley relay.
Some highlights for the
women also include a series of
sweeps, the first one being in the
200-yard freestyle Inn Rilev was
in the spotlight in thise ent her
time ot 2.01 70 was good enough
to earn her a firs! place. Next in
line was Patty Walsh (2:02.08) and
taking third place was Robin
Wicks with her time of 2:03 9 I
The . ites dominated
the 200-yard individual medley
when Leslie fo Wilson (2:15.5),
Shelly Mica 2 17.98) and Wendy

and third place honors.

Women play in scrimmage as
result of postponed exhibition
AnisUnt Sports Editor
East Carolina basketball fans
were treated to an impromptu
scrimmage by the Lady Pirates
Thursday night.
The women performed an
unscheduled inter-squad scrim-
mage prior to the men's planned
exhibition game against Mara-
thon Oil.
Second year head coach Pat
Pierson and the Lady Pirates took
the floor at 7:30 p.m. and were
split into a Purple and a White
squad. Coach Pierson lead the
White squad and her two assis-
tants, Rosie Thompson and Burt
Jenkins, took charge of the Purple
The Purple team was lead by
the fine play of sophomore Sarah
Gray. Gray, who sat out all of last
season due to a knee injury, was
an All-CAA rookie in her fresh-
men year. She showed that
Thursday by taking charge of
play inside the paint, dazzling
fans with some strong, aggressive
moves inside and showing great
shooting touch on several spin
moves. The Purple squad was
also helped by the fine play of
seniors Pam Williams and Gretta
The White squad was helped
by fine performances from sen-
iors Chris O'Connor and Rose
Miller. O'Connor, a starter on last
years squad, showed excellent
shooting touch and played very
well on defense. Miller was strong
on the boards for the White team
and showed good skill on the
defensive end of the court.
The White team was also
aided by the fine play of two new
team members. Mona Jackson, a
former ECU Softball player, and
freshmen Tonya Hargrove
played very well in front or a large
Minges Coliseum crowd.
The scrimmage was divided
into a 20 minute half and a second
half of 10 minutes. Play remained
close for most of the first half, but
a three-point play by Bretta Sav-
age at 7:32 put the Purple team up
to stay. At halfhme the White
team was down bv nine, 28-19
The White squad mounted a
valiant try in the second half, lead
by the outside shooting of
O'Connor and the inside plav of
Miller and Hargrove. But the
Purple squad was just too much

Pirates outplay semi-pro team
AHlAm Sport Editor
After weeks of playing scrim-
mages against themselves, Pirate
coach Mike Steele and his team
were anxious to play someone
else. They got their chance on
Thursday against Marathon Oil.
Marathon Oil, a semi-profes-
sional team which tours the coun-
try playing college teams during
pre-season play, defeated the Pi-
rates 88-78, but were out played
by the Pirates in many areas.
The one statistic the pirates
fell short to Marathon Oil in was
the crucial area of shooting per-
centage. The Pirates were cold all
night from the field, shooting
only 38.6 percent for the game.
Marathon Oil shot a very respect-
able 53.3 percent. "If we had shot
45 percent, we would have beat
them Coach Mike Steele said
following the game.
"I was disappointed with the
way we played at the start of the
game Steele said. "We came out
without a lot of emotion or inten-
sity. I don't know whether it was
because of the long wait or what
Steele added.
The game was delayed over
an hour due to a problem with
Marathon Oil's team van; play
didn't start until 8:30.
"Our transition defense was
terrible at the start of the game
Steele said. "We came out the
second half with much more in-
tensity and played a much better
half of basketball. I talked to their
coach following the game and he
said we hustled more than any
team they have played, but that

Duke reigns over UNC
Autatant Sports Mitm
It was a day of big plays and
great performances at Wallace
Wade Stadium as Duke faced
North Carolina in the 75th anni-
versary of this ACC rhalry.
Not only were there standout
performances from players on
both teams, but as the game pro-
pressed records were broken and
players added their names to the
annals of history.
It didn't take long for the fire-
works to begin. Following the
opening kick-off, Duke mounted
an eight plav, 66-yard drive that
was capped off by an Anthony
1 Hlweg to Keith E well touchdown
pass of 18 yards. Ewell made a
v;reat effort to bet to the end zone,
breaking tackles and making a
fine move at the five vard line to
scamper in. The touchdown pass
was Dilweg's 22nd on the season,
breaking the ACC record for
touchdown passes in a single sea

the workhorse of the drive and
c red the touchdown on a fine 14
yard run off left tackle.
Following the kick off, the

Burnett hit Michael Benefieldona
12 yard shovel pass and Carolina
was on the move. But two penal-

quarter, the Tarheels narrowed
the gap to 14-7.
Duke began another sus-
tained drive into Tarheel terri-
tory. On a third and 10, Dilweg hit
Clarkston Hines on a 21-yard pass
reception. That catch put Hines
over the 1,000-yard mark for the
season making him the only ACC
receiver to ever have back to back
1,000 yard seasons.
The drive stalled, however, at
the Carolina 30 and Doug
Peterson's 47 yard field goal at-
tempt fell short. The score re-
mained 14-7.
The Tarheels started their
next drive at their own 30 and
once again it was Kennard Martin
who led the way to paydirt. This
time Martin carried the ball three
times for 51 yards. He scored on a
16 yard carry which was set up by
a block from flanker Randy Marri-

Duke came right back.
Dilweg went four for four on the
drive and hit a streaking Ewell for
a 30-yard touchdown. The six-
play, 74-yard drive took 2:05 and
put the Blue Devils on top 21-14.
After trading turnovers and a

the men's soccer team.
Higgins, a midfielder who
was North Carolina's leading
scorer with 13 goals and 17assists,
put the Tar Heels on top at the
30:45 mark. Halfback Pam Kali-
