Using designer drugs at party
I was at a party last night and some
people were using designer and hallu-
cinogenic drugs. What arc designer
drugs and how dangerous are they?
Designer drugs are not asglamor-
ous as they appear to be. They are
created by changing the structure of
certain drugs. The use of designer
drugs and hallucinogenic drugs has
increased nationally, with some of the
more commonly used drugs includ-
ing ecstacy (MDMA) and LSD. Ec
stacy, which was legal until 1985, is
considered to be a hallucinogenic drug
and is chemically related to ampheta-
mines. It appears in a variety of forms
such as powders and capsule. It is
swallowed, inhaled, or used intrave-
nously. The effects of designer drugs
1) increased relaxation
2) dry mouththroat
3) nervousnesstension
4) mood changes
5) tolerance and dependence (it
lakes more of the drug to get the same
6) amphetamine psychosis
7) intensified heart problems
8) long lasting effects on the brain.
9) severe psychological and physi-
cal burn out
The fear many people have about
designer drugs is the fear of the
"unknown Researchers don't know
a lot about the risks related to the use
of designer drugs or other hallucino-
genic drugs. They do know that hallu-
cinogenic drugs alter sensation,
moods, and consciousness. They may
also distort hearing, touch, smell, taste
and vision.
LSD is a hallucinogenic drug. Ii
docs not take a large amount of this
drug to produce a high; if you had
enough LSD to equal the size of an
Mary Elesha-Adams
aspirin it would be enough for 3,000
The effects of LSD include some of
the same effects for other hallucino-
genic drugs and the following:
1) increased pulse and heart rate
2) increased blood pressure
3) increased body temperature
LSD is unpredictable and may
1) panic
2) strong suicidal urges
3) flashbacks
4) genetic damage

need to know about designer and
hallucinogenic drugs in this article. If

Official confiscates campus newspapers
(CPS)�A New Jersey Insti
tute of Technology official, anx-
ious to impress a group of high
school students thinking of en
rolling at the school, confiscated
copies of the school paper and
kept them out of sight until the
prospective freshman left campus.
The Feb. 17 edition of Tine
Vector, the student paper, re-
ported that a student member had
been assaulted and robbed near
the Newark campus a few days
Admissions Dean William
Anderson, apparently worried the
story would tarnish the visitors'
view of NJ IT, ordered a student to
take the papers from their display
bins and store them in the admis-
sions office.
"It is hard to believe adminis-
trators could be so unthinking and
so ignorant of free press rights
said Mark Goodman of the Stu-
dent Press Law Center in Wash-
ington, D.C.
"We're looking for an apol-
ogy and a guarantee it won't
happen again said Michael
Manna, The Vector's managing
"It was unfortunate. It
shouldn't have happened. I'm
going to do everything in my
power to make sure this won't
happeH again Dean of Student
Services Constance Murray said.
Anderson's action, Hanna
maintained, was another example
of NJIT officials downplaying
campus crime, adding that if new
students don't know crime is a
problem on the Newark campus,
thev could get hurt.
"Being in Newark, we are
aware of crime replied NJIT
spokeswoman Arlene Gilbert, but
she said NJIT has a lower crime
than other New Jersey campuses
and that it has improved its secu-
rity recently.
Vector Editor-in-Chief Mark
Budzyn discovered the newspa-
pers were missing from their bins,
and when he asked about the
papers at the school information
desk, he was told the admissions
office had taken them just before a
Feb. 19 open house for visiting
high school seniors.
When he asked about the
papers at the admissions office,
Budzvn says he was stonewalled.
Angered, Budzyn placed signs on
the bins that said the papers were
confiscated by the admissions
The signs prompted the ad-
missions office to turn the bins
around so the visiting high school
seniors didn't see them. Budzyn
then put signs on the back of the
bins as well.
The newspapers were re-
turned a few hours later, after the
open bouse campus tours ended.
Anderson, who didn't return
College Press Service's calls, met
with several Vector staffers Feb.
21 to discuss the issue, and al-
though he told them he "realized
it was a bad judgment call, he
didn't sound all that upset, Hanna
"He wants people to see the
best of the institute Hanna said
of Anderson. "He doesn't under-
stand this is censt rship. Hedoesn't
understand our responsibility to
let people know
NJIT President Saul Fenster
"doesn't consider this lightly
said school spokeswoman Phyllis
Miller. "He wants to make sure i
doesn't happen again
Although the Student Press
Law Center's Goodman thinks the
paper's staff could sue, Hanna say
The Vector staff is satisfied with
Anderson's apology and the
administration's guarantees that
papers won't be confiscated again.
Peeved game warden files $100,000 slander suit

Hester, 48, and four other
commissioners succeeded in
overruling Waterfield's promo-

after the advancement had beenl
unanimously recommended by a
Wildlife Commission selection!
The suit seeks a jury trial. No
trial date has been set.
In July, Hester and four otherl
Republicans on the 13-memberl
Wildlife Commission won a 5-4f
majority vote that blocked Water-

Advancement among gamej
wardens has traditionally been
recommended by a selection
board from the career staff of the

house promotions were auto-

Soviets expel U.S. spy suspect
MOSCOW (AD � The Sovi-
ets today accused a U.S. military
attacheof spyingand ordered him
expelled, a move that follows
Washington'sexpulsion last week
ot a Soviet officer allegedly caught
frying to buy commuter secrets.
Soviet Foreign Ministry
spokesman Gennady 1. Gerasimov
said Army U Col. Daniel Francis
Van Gundy 111, an assistant mili-
tary attache at the U.S. Fmbassv in
Moscow, had been given 48 hours
to leave the country. Gerasimov
said Van Gundy, who had been
assigned to the embassy for about
two years, the normal Moscow
diplomatic tour, was declared
unwelcome because he engaged
in espionage.
Van Gundy lives on the U.S.
Embassy compound with his wife,
Susan, and two of their three
daughters. Flis expulsion follows
the U.S. government's announce-
ment Thursday that it had ordered
Soviet Lt. Col. Yuri N. Pakhtusov
to leave the United States.
Gerasimov, at a hastily called
briefing, charged that Van Gundy
attempted "to enter a closed area,
deliberately diverting from the
officially permitted route,clandes-
tinely photographed military sites
and committed other gross viola-
tions" of the rules of diplomatic
conduct. U.S. Embassy spokesman
Richard Gilbert rejected the So-
viet charges against Van Gundy,
saying they were "unwarranted,
inappropriate, without justifica-
tion and certainly in no way in
keeping with the positive tone of
the U.S -Soviet relationship
Gilbert, the embassy press
attache, denied the 42-year-old
U.S. Army officer had engaged in
activities inconsistent with his
work as a diplomat and suggested
the Soviet action was simply in
retaliation for the U.S. expulsion
of Pakhtusov. Gerasimov said,
"The U.S. administration is reveal-
ing its foreign policy, and we have
this problem of spy mania
He cited a recent Time maga-
zine cover story on the 1987 Ma-
rine spy scandal in Moscow and
said there had been other attempts
to incite fears of espionage by
unnamed American leaders unin-
terested in improving U.SSoviet
relations. "We're not the ones who
initiated this process Gerasimov
said, tacitly acknowledging the
connection between last week's
incident and the expulsion of Van
Pakhtusov was accused of
receiving sensitive information
about how the U.S. government
protects computer secrets. The
State Department said he was
caught in a six-month FBI probe
after he approached an unidenti-
fied American employee of a firm
that deals in classified informa-
The Soviet government re-
jected the charge and accused the
United States of "a deliberate

Give credit where it's due
The East Carolina basketball
program is flying high. With the
advancement to the semi-finals in
the Colonial Athletic Association
against George Mason, its 15-14 fin-
ish for the season (a substantial in-
crease over last year's 8-20 season)
and decorated team member, Blue
Edwards, earning the C AA player of
the year award, the basketball pro-
gram has earned the respect and fan
support it greatly deserves.
While the basketball program
has earned the large support it re-
ceived, many ECU sports, particu-
larly the non-revenue sports, go un-
recognized by the Pirate fans. But
the East Carolina athletic programs
that win year in and year out con-
tinue to get the inadequate fan sup-
port it needs and deserves.
For examnle, the East Carolina
swimming and diving program has
consistently excelled in its sport and
the men in this non-revenue pro-
gram even went on to take the vic-
tory in the Colonial Athletic Asso-
ciation Championships after plac-
ing second the year before. The
women were just as competitive
taking fourth this year and third the
year before in the CAA champion-
ships. And yet, few people outside
the families of the swimmers give
them the support they deserve.
The same held true for the
women's basketball program. The
women finished their season at an
impressive mark of 15-13 which was
much improved over their 8-20 sea-
son of last year. The women excelled
as much as the men's basketball
program, but the fan support for the
Lady Pirates was not even a fourth
of what it was for the men, yet it was
equally deserved.
Now, ECU faces the spring and
all of the athletics it has to offer. But
the major spring sport, baseball,
which is 10-1 on the season thus far,
has been getting very poor fan atten-
dence. The baseball team is one,
which, year after year, finishes the
season with top honors.
Softball and track, two other
spring sports, consistentlv boast top
athletes yet seldom see and hear fans
to cheer them on.
Football and basketball, the two
main funded collegiate athletic pro-
gram are consistently supported
and further funded by the athletic
department and the tans. But it is the
non-revenue sports who suffer from
lack of fan support. The very sports
which consistently excel go unno-
ticed yet deserve equal recognition.
The success of ECU athletics
does not lie in just the success of
football and basketball. East Caro-
lina is winning in most areas of ath-
letics. The only thing missing is the
support to give them the credit they

Last Monday, March 13, the Stu-
dent Government Legislature held
its weekly meeting. During the pe-
riod of old business, a legislator
asked for a Suspension of Rules in
order to consider an appropriation
bill. This motion, being in order and
properly seconded passed, and de-
bate began on the bill. Trouble began
as well. Suspension of the Rules
passed on the grounds that there was
an urgency for hearing the bill March
13, as opposed to following proce-
dures and deciding the issue March
20. Debators stated the funds were
needed for registration of a confer-
ence, but the legislation deadline was
said to be the last week in March, a
full week after the bill would have
been decided following procedures.
Suspending the rules was unneces-
The rules were suspended be-
cause the group had submitted the
request in the beginning of February,
but Chairperson Cooperman claims
the document was shuffled in with
annual appropriation bills and
"lost Had proper procedure been
followed, the legislation would have
been turned in to the Speaker, distrib-
uted to the SGA Secretary and the
Committee Chairperson, and any
necessary copies for the body would
have been made. Further, introduc-
tion a week before discussion allows
for legislators to research bills, and
for students to express opinions to
Prior to discussion of the legisla-
tion being debated, the Appropria-
tions Committee, under the direction
of Chairperson Cooperman, dis-
cussed the bill in committees,
amended the bill, and voted. This is
very improper. The committee may
informally discuss the issue, but no
amendments may be made, or votes
The original legislation was
clouded by improper amendments
written on the bill by the Appropria-
tions committee, making the legisla-
tion difficult to read and understand
A motion to refer the bill to commit-
tee was made and seconded, based
on the fact that an immediate deci-
sion was not required. The motion
would have allowed proper proce-
dures to be carried out, and careful
consideration to be given to the
group. But the push to blindly accept
the Appropriations Committe report
left many legislators confused. Fur-
ther, the abuse of Previous Question,
a formal call to end voting, stifled op-
posing views, and railroaded the is-
sue through the legislature. In one
instance, Previous Question was
called in First round affirmative
debate, disallowing an opportunity
for the opposition to voice their con-
It is important to emphasize that
wedon't stand against the fundingof
this organization, but procedures
and guidelines that were ignored and
overlooked in this issue are impor-
tant. The urgency to decide this issue
before the next legislature meeting
did not exist. Chairperson Cooper-
man misinformed the Appropria-
tionsCommittee concerning their au-
thorization to take action, and
wrongly introduced that informa-
tion to the body. The legislature has
an obligation to treat all groups fairlv
and provide funding for those
groups meeting criteria, but the legis-
lators in the body have an obligation
to the constituents to review action
and make their own decision.
East Carolina has one of the
strongest Student Government Asso-
ciations in the state of North Caro-
lina. To maintain this distinction,
order must prevail, procedures be
followed, and the individuals elected
by the students must be reliable,
having the students best interests at
heart. Students must observe and act,
but do so properly. That is important
in upholding theethicsof theStudent
Government Association and the
student body.
All students are welcome to ob-
serve the SGA legislature meeting
every Monday, at 5:00 pm, in room

resent ECU. Be informed.

Drug Czar" Bennet holds threat and promise
Editorial Columnist
It's time to burst a few bubbles.
We spend so much time ranting about
what a fantastic thing this democracy of
ours is, that we tend to forget that we don't
live in one. Nor, for that matter, were we
ever meant to. The prevailing "wisdom" is
that the semi-mystical Founding Fathers
would have made America a democracy, if
only it had been technologically feasible.
The Founding Fathers were smart. No
matter what they thought about individu-
als, they all realized that the mass of men,
taken as a mass, was incapable of success-
fully ruling itself. They realized that it
would be stupid to subject public policy to
too great an influence from public opinion.
Most of us were taught year after year
in grade school that the system of checks
and balances they instituted was meant to
prevent any one of the three branches of
government from becoming more power-
ful than any other. Rarely mentioned is that
the form of the government itself was in-
tended to prevent the public from gaining
too great a control over the government.
There are not three counterbalancing forces,
but four.
Television, the most massive of the
mass media, is the vehicle by which this
delicate balance is being upset. The govern-
ment, once relatively sheltered from the
gale-force winds of public opinion, now
moves under the exacting scrutiny of the
To be sure, this has advantages. But it
poses its own dangers as well.
The public, taken as a group, is not
nearly well-informed enough to make most
decisions that are made on the federal level.
The public tends to think of its short-term
welfare above all, even when short-term
evil might lead to long-term good. When
they were less directly in the spotlight,
elected officials were more willing to make
unpopular decisions.
The public can now watch the govern-
ment more closely than ever, but the gov-
ernment has its eyes on the public as well.
Congressmen routinely make their deci-
sions based on the results of opinion polls,
which only take a snapshot of public opin-
ion and do not offer any other insight into
the meritsof any particular course of action.
As if this weren't bad enough, television �
and, to a lesser extent, the other media �
were used in the recent presidential election
to manipulate public emotion without at-
tempting tojnspire the public to think.
But the most dangerous result of the
new "mediarchy to coin a term, is the so-
called war on drugs. Reagan managed to
use television to convince the public that
drugs were the country's single worst prob-
lem. Now the public is pressuring federal
and state legislatures to do anything �
anything � to stop drug use. Nothing since
McCarthy's anti-communism crusade has
held such potential to damage Americans'
Earlier this week, in a move that sur-
prised no one, former Secretary of Educa-
tion William Bennett was confirmed as the
nation's new "drug czar" � the man whose
job it is to win the war on drugs.
However, even President Bush has
been known to remark in passing that the
drug war � which, at one time, he spear-
headed � has so far been a losing battle.
Doesn't this tell him anything?
What Bush fails to understand, and
what the public fails to understand, is that
the war on drugs cannot be won at any
reasonable cost. Any outcome except re-
treat is doomed to be at best a Pyrrhic vic-
tory. To combat the perception that loss is
inevitable, supporters of the war on drugs
propose ever-stronger penalties for users
and pushers.
Drug use is so widespread that, next to
alcohol, marijuana is America's drug of
choice. If, as many suggest, we attempted to
put all drug users in jail, how could we
possibly put fit them all in without packing
them fifty per cell? For that matter, how
many people would be left to guard them?
As drug sanctions increase, so do deal-
ers' profits. The opportunity for quick and
easy profit is an enormous temptation to
anyone, especially to poor people in large
cities where supply and demand are both
high. With the profit comes the necessity of
protecting it, and the money to buy enough
guns and muscle to do so. Hence the fright-
ening increase in inner-city violence.
Those who wanted to toughen drug
laws in the first place then point to inner-
city violence as one of the reasons for the
need to stiffen penalties still further � cir-
cular reasoning at its finest.
The increased profitsalso make i t easier
to buy off border guards, customs officials
and the like � yet another self-defeating
aspect of the drug war.
In addition, it is ridiculous for the
United States to demand that foreign gov-
ernments, especially South American gov-
ernments, crack down on drug producers in
their countries. The government knows full
well that these countries cannot afford to
carry out such measures In addition,
American demand for the drugs is in large
part responsible for the growth of the drug
trade in foreign countries � and for its
Finally, it is hypocritical for the United
States government to ask that foreign gov-
ernments should stop supplying the U.S.
with drugs. At the same time it makes this
claim, the government is protesting that,
because of the principle of free trade, U.S.
companies should be permitted to sell can-
cer-causing tobacco products to China.
A wise ruler knows what he cannot do.
No ruler, no matter how wise, could possi-
bly expect to stop drug use by increasing
penalties. Speeding is another law which is
often broken, occasionally with disastrous
results � but there is no call to put speeders
to death, since the law would be unenforce-
able. Laws which cannot be enforced un-
dermine respect for the law generally and
even seem almost laughable.
But most of the results of the drug war
have not been very funny. The right to
protection from unreasonable search and
seizure has been undermined, and the ex-
clusionary rule is repeatedly targeted �
though, so far, it has remained relativelv
Are there no more pressing problems
facing the nation? Is drug use truly the most
important issue at hand? Is protecting the
Bill of Rights not important enough to stand
in the way of the drug war? Are the national
debt, the trade deficit, racism, discrimina-
tion, sexual equality under the law and the
dismal public education system all less
important than drugs? A majority of the
public apparently thinks so.
There is a faint ray of hope at the end of
the tunnel. During his confirmation hear-
ings, Bennett insisted that he understands
that civil rights must take precedence over
the demands of his new job.
One hopes that he will demonstrate this
understanding. More importantly, one
hopes that he will demonstrate it in the face
of the pressure he will undoubtedly face
from vocal opponents of clearheaded re-
straint and rational thinking.

Stiff Writer
The East Carol in. i Dance Thea-
ter opened its spring concert in
McGinnis Theater last night with
a dance entitled The Decline a
series of vignettes which demon-
strated the transition of dance from
the waltz to the obscene gyrations
or today. Each separate vignette
demonstrated two dances from
each period, one each for the upper
and lower classes.
"The Decline" included e!e
ments of theater, from simple ac-
tion to slapstick comedy. Although
this did lit tie to enhance the dances,
the audience seemed appreciative.
The second dance, "Qctopod
and the fourth, "Radiant Ener-
gies were both choreographed
by Patricia L. Weeks. Asone might
expect, they were much the same.
Each began with intense,
minute action and combined the
motions oi duets or trios to pro-
duce surreal motions. Weeks'
choreography utilized both the
bodies of the dancers and the
negative spaces around them to
create a somewhat unsettling vis-
ual effect.
Ret ween Weeks' dances came
"Interplay which looked like a
home video of an aerobics class
for people with no sense of direc-
tion. The dancers carried the parts
well, but the choreography was
nothing short of pathetic.
The only part of this dance
which the audience seemed to like
was the third movement, in which
the performers wore masks on the
back of their heads. Admittedly, it
was interesting, but it was incon-
gruous with the rest of the dance.
The finale, "Beauty and the
Beast was the least bizarre dance
of the lot. As suggested by its title,
the dance was a sort of parody of
the fairy tale. Its choreography
included both graceful, fluid flour-
ishes and sharp motions which
seemed almost brutal.
Although "Beauty and the
Beast" was a well-choreographed
and well-performed dance, it is
far too subdued to serve as a fi-
nale: it lacked intensity.
Although the content of the
show was merely a cut above
mediocrity, thedancers' perform-
ance was outstanding. They exe-
cuted the entire show without a
single stumble or foot-squeak. This
is more than can be said for Phila-
danco, which supposed to be a
professional group.
In addition to their talent as
dancers, last night's performer?
demonstrated a showmanship
unequaled by the two "profes-
sional" dance companies who
have recently appeared in Wright.
Unlike last night's performers,
dancers oi both the Ohio Ballet
and Philadanco took several bows
after each dance, forcing the audi-
ence to applaud far longer than
was merited.
The concert will continue
nightly through Sunday the lth.

Jason is the only student in
the school trailer.
He has endured a lawsuit and
a move from nearby Granite City
to this tiny, Southern Illinois
comnrmnity in search of peace.
Phone alls playing funeral music

Now his mother, Tammie,
father, Al, and 10-year-old sister,
Melissa, are picking up the pieces
after a struggle that turned neigh-
bor against neighbor in a battle
over Jason's future.
Jason weighs only 46 pounds
and stands about 4 feet tall. His
most striking features are his big
brown eyes. A quiet boy, he an-

for himself, plus $92,000 in legal
fees. A judge ordered that some of
the money should go to the mother
of his murdered wife as well as
MacDonald's mother.
McGinniss maintains that he,
too, believed the Green Beret in-
nocent until he started to examine
the evidence. He then concluded,
and let his book reflect, that
MacDonald was indeed the man
who wiped out his family.
Except for the principals,
McGinniss uses pseudonyms in
"Blind Faith" for the other charac-
ters, although the real names are
all part oi the public record.
Considered an ideal couple
with three blond sons, the
Marshal Is were tea singly called
Ken and Barbie by their friends.
McGinniss says he sort of
stumbled onto thr book when a
Toms River woman, a stranger to
him, wTOte him a long letter shortly
after the murder.
"She had about 90 percent of
it right two months after the
murder he says. The letter was
very compelling
McGinniss says he doesn't
know why Tie even read the letter.
After "Fatal Vision" went on the
air in 1984 as a two-part minisenes,
he was deluged with letters from
people asking him to write a book
about some murder or the other.
"I got hundreds of letters from
people whose second cousin was
murdered or from someone who
was beaten up in a barroom brawl
and they wanted me to write a
book about it he says. "I was just
throwing them away

about the Marshall case was what

What I did over Spring Break
Staff Braaker
Some people have fun dur-
ing Spring Break. Some people
go out of state, others go out of
me country, some do lots of psy-
choactive drugs.
I am not one of these people.
Journalists are perpetually
broke. Money can't buy happi-
ness, but it can do a he1! , a lot
towards getting you out of
Greenville, thus making you at
least somewhat less depressed.
Oh, sure, I was supposed to
go somewhere. But since the guy
giving me a ride home got so in-
credibly wasted Thursday night
(not naming any names, Timo-
thy Charles "Earlvis" Hampton)
I got stuck here.
To relieve my boredom, I

I plundered through my
coats, Jeans, bureau, sofa cush-
ions and the drink machines in

Three days of diligent searching
yielded six dollars. 1 headed to
the video store.
Apparently, everyone in
Greenville had rented the good
videos the night before bre�k
and forgotten to return therr I
hope they kept them the wh
week and ran up $30 fines.
I wound up with "Polh -
truly repulsive movies. With ny
last dollar, I purchased a two-li-
ter Pepsi, the choice of a new
generation of hopeless caffeine
The next day, I vowed not to
turn on the TV. My mom was
right it does make your eye-
balls fall out. I decided to spend
the day listening to my Stevie
Nicks collection.
I figured, I'd listen to all the
Fleet wood Mac Lps first then
her solo albums in chronologi-
cal order. I put the needle down
on "Rumours
It was then that the Second
Great Blizzard of The Emerald

The next morning, I called

My parents had mercy on me
and bought me a bus ticket home.
After waiting two hours and fif-
teen minutes for the bus to get in
from Rocky Mount, I was on my
way home.
We were delayed only
slightly in Wilson, when a lady
got stuck in the bus's rest room
and a blowtorch had to be found
to cut her out. At six o' clock
p.m I stepped out onto Boy Ian
Avenue in Raleigh, I was home.

Five hours later, he came
home from work. He wrapped I
me up in the astroturf welcome 1
mat, and pinned a note on me I
saying he was going out of town
for the week and why d idn't I go
stay at Mom's house.
His roommate came home
the next day and called the po-
lice. I was arrested for trespass-
ing, thawed out and given a cita-
tion. They called my father to
come get me. He was on his way
to a conference in Miami to give
a lecture on "Coaxial Fan Ducts

Serving our freshman readers since Wednesday
Hey, kiddies!
Here's Big E's
li'l column!
Dear Big E,
I am a freshman girl here at ole EC and the
nly clothing I have to wear for St. Patty's day is
d pair of green bikini underwear. E, how do I
avoid being pinched?
Signed, Freshman Superheroine
Li'l Holiday!
March 17 is St. Patrick's Day!
St. Patrick was an Irish guy who asked God to
get rid of all the snakes in Ireland a long time
ago. God said, "Sure, dude All the snakes
swam into the ocean and came over to the Tar
River, where they hang out in trees waiting to
drop on the heads of unsuspecting freshmen.
Watch out, kids!
Many countries celebrate St. Patrick's Day by
wearing the color green. This is because green is
the central frequency (FREE-KWEN-SEE) on
the spectrum. Green helps block out certain
light rays, while making others strong enough
to grow potatoes, the major crop of Ireland.
Other St. Patrick's Day customs (KUSS-
TUMMS) include kissing people wearing green,
pinching those who have limited amounts of
green on, and breaking the kneecaps of those
wearing no green.
Teacher's note: Help freshmen increase their vocabulary
with this article. Have them read the article aloud in class.Words
above the third grade level have phonetic pronunciations in-
cluded to help them.

Monday � Wholesome squares of card-
board covered with stale cheese, topped with

semble pizza. Black-eyed ball bearings and
mashed newsprint. Freshly squeezed bug juice.
Tuesday � 100 NutraSoy� burgers on

some estrogen-activated milk. Peanut butter
flavored Jell-O�.
Wednesday � Fried monosodium gluta-
mate. String bean-okra casserole, with added
liver flakes. Wholesome Listerine�-flavored

Crawdad bisque, mule milk and grits. Whole-
some boiled collard greens. Moonshine.
Friday � ST. PATRICK'S DAY. Green food

molds. Prestone�-flavored fruit juice.
Saturday � Cafeteria closed. Tough.
All menus subject to change without any notice whatsoever,
due to varying factors such as quarantine, crop availabilty, and
presidential policy changes in the federal school lunch budget
Dear Super Freshman,
Green underwear. There is an advice line
here, but we will avoid the obvious because the
excessive use of what one "E-hater" called
scatological language.
E-Enemies rejoice! Just Ask Big E will no
longer have crude tales of prostitutes, bed wet
spots, green projectiles, bathroom stall toilet
paper, bearded women or the host of sexually
transmitted diseases. No more. From now until
the year 2000, E will give only wholesome and
inspirational advice to all the poor dejected
people of ECU.
Maybe I should explain. You see, over spring
break, E was saved while watching little green
bottles run down a conveyer belt.
With eyes glued to bottles of denture adhe-
sive, E sat there hating life and scheming to
corrupt the minds of millions of freshmen with
another raunchy E column � when all of a
sudden a short kid burst out of the cap machine
and said "There will be no scatological language
in hell
So, dear little freshman, here is my whole-
some advice: cut out a piece of green construc-
tion paper and pin it to your shirt.
Green Beer
Dear Big Earle,
Many of my future fraternity brothers are
planning on drinking green beer on St. Patrick's
day. Will it make me sick?
Signed, Hopeful Freshman Pledge
Dear Underage Misguided Future Frat Boy,
Drinking green beer will cause you to break
out in a green rash (except for some rare cases
like Leonard Nimoy and Fred Quinn). Drinking
beer is bad for you anyway, so this is a good time
to quit.
Instead of drinking green beer, why not listen
to Big E's mom, Janet, and drink some Green
Magma. According to the label, Green Magma is
made from the dried juice of young barley
plants with brown rice. It tastes better than
Michelob Dry, and the best part is: it's good for
you. STSSiitt O

"This spring practice will be
very important to us said Lewis.
"We are building from the ground

start from. We will be teaching a
lot of fundamentals because they
are the key to any program. It will

It will be important for the

during the next seiison.
"This will be an evaluation of
the talent we have said Lewis.
"We (the new coaching staff)
would rather form our opinions
on the playing field than on film.
In that respect, spring practice is
important. I think the players are
excited too because it will not take
them long to progress and step to

When one looks at the bench
of any sports team, the least recog-
nizable person is usually the team
trainer. The trainer, however, is a
vital part of a successful team.
At East Carolina, the univer-
sity is fortunate to have a capable
ports medicine program that
supplies trainers. According to
Rod Compton, a certified athletic
trainer and the head of the sports
medicine department, the sports
medicine department supplies
trainers foi all 16 varsity sports.
With only approximately 30 stu-
1 ntseni died in sports medicine,
ke ps everyone busy.
Aside from the time spent in
class, a trainer also spends 12-15
hours per week working without
paw This means that in order to
succeed, a trainer must be both
motivated and dedicated.
There art.1 three differc
ru iev-
i Isof student trainers in the sports
medicine department. The entrv
level is called the rookie stage.
From there the student trainer goes
on to become a curriculum trainer.
In the third and final stage, one is
a staff student.
After graduation, a sports
medicine major has a few choices
to make about what todo. Mostgo
to work at the high school level as
a teacher or a full-time trainer,
while some pursue their educa-
tion and go to graduate school.
Chris Smith, a curriculum
trainer and a trainer for the foot-
ball team, said that what inter-
ested her about becoming a trainer
was it combined her two favorite
things. "1 always liked medicine
and sports Smith said. "A coach
in junior high suggested I com-
bine the two, and here I am
Being a trainer involves more
than just the stereotypical idea that
all thev do is tape ankles. Andy
Brice, a staff student and a trainer
for spring football, said, "We do
more than what everyone thinks
we do. We are responsible for
preventative medicine and also
habilitation. We d, the behind-
the-scenes work to make sureeve-
rything and everyone works the
proper way
Becoming a trainer is not for
everyone. One has to wori hard in
order to succeed. As Smite said,
"It's a good program to get into,
but you have to work. You can't

McNeese to play in
first NCAA tourney
Despitea 16-13 record thisseason,
the McNeese State Cowboys de-
serve to be in the NCAA tourna-
ment just as much as any of the
other 63 teams in the held. Coach
Steve l � U h says.
"It's a tn : lous challenge

ference Tournament. It'sjustabig-

McNeese plays in its first
CAA tournament game ever
Thursday against fourth-ranked
Illinois in an opening-round con-
test at Indianapolis.
Illinois was selected Sunday
as the top seed in the Midwest re-
gional. The other No. 1 seeds were
third-ranked Georgetown in th
East, second-ranked Oklahoma in
the Southeast and top-ranked
Arizona in the West.
Georgetown, the Big Hast
champion, opens Friday against
Princeton at Providence. Later that
day, Oklahoma will play East
Tennessee State in Nashville, and
top-ranked Arizona will be in
Boise, Idaho on Thursday against
Robert Morris.
Welch has seen his share oi
trouble since taking the helm at
McNeese State last year.
He inherited a program on
probation and docked two schol-
arships because oi recruiting vio-
lations by his predecessor, Glenn
Duhon. That probation ran its
course and expired last month.
"Our first five players are
comparable to a lot of players, if
we work hard. But we don't have
the depth that other teams have,
partly because we're only work-

The lack of depth was never
more apparent than the 12-game
period during which point guard
Terrv Griggley was sidelined with
pulled abdominal muscles. The
Cowboys lost seven of those
games, six of them consecutively.
Before Griggley's injury,
McNeese almost always played
man-to-man defense and worked
patiently for the good shot. Even
though he returned to health be-
fore the Southland Conference
Tournament, McNeese has gone
almost exclusively to a zone or a
Offensively, Griggley keeps
the Cowboys patient and tries to
work the ball inside to Anthony
Pullard, 6-foot- 10-inches, or Mark
Thompson, 6-foot-9-inches, who
plavs the double post. If that's not
there, the post men kick it out to 6-
4 guard Michael Cutright, the
team's leading scorer.
Cutright averaged 20.1 points,
Pullard 17.4 and Thompson 11.7.
Griggley is an excellent ath-
lete who started for Florida State's
football team as a defensive back
as a freshman in 1984. However,
shoulder and knee injuries cut his
football career short, and he trans-
ferred to McNeese.
