Faculty passes grading system
Staff Wntr
The ECU Faculty Senate over-
whelmingly passed a resolution
Tuesday which will give teachers
the option to change their current
grading system. Under the new
system, which begi ns in the Fall of
1990, teachers will be able to give
students a plus or minus to the
final letter grades, raising or low-
ering their Grade Point Average
Under the current system,
students are given a grade of A, B,
( 1) or 1 An "1" represents a
studc nt's failure to complete a
subject, reflecting the lackof quan-
tity, not quality, of a subject. Also,
theGPA equivalent is a 4.0 for an
A, 3.0 for a B, 2.0 for a C, 1.0 for
a D, and no points given for an F.
Grade points for a course are
computed by multiplying the
number of semester - hour credits
by the point value of of the course
The new plan will allow teach-
ers to givegradesof A B, BC,
and so on. The plus or minus will
show up on student's report cards
and the grade of A will not be
If the grade is modified by a
plus, then the point value is in-
creased by 0.3. If modified by a
minus, the point value is decreased

Sun bathing linked to cancer
Now that warm weather has
finally arrived many of you are
probably thinkingaboutgetunga
tan. Here are a few facts you should
Tanning is the body's re-
sponse that occurs when skin is
exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
How much you tan depends on
your own skin's natural ability to
tan (i.e. dark skin tans easily; light
skin tends to burn.)
The tanning process begins
with changes occurring beneath
the skin. When the skin is overex-
posed, UV rays damage the outer
laver which releases substances
into the inner layer causing blood
vessels to enlarge. A largQ
? causes simbOrnHvifth de?trty
cells resulting in blisters. This
damage leads to wrinkled, leath-
ery skin and a greater chance of
skin cancer.

The sun can affect you:
1. When you workplay
outdoors - many ou tdoor surfaces
reflect and intensify the sun's rays.
2. When you sit under a
hat or umbrella - sand and water
reflect over one half the sun's rays.
Sitting in the shade does not guar-
antee safety.
3. When you wear light
clothing - sun rays can penetrate
material especially if it's wet.
4. when youare in the water
wAMfleets tun's rays, increas-
ing exposure.
5. even when your skin is
already dark - dark skin has more
natural protection but is still sen-
sitive to sunburn and skin cancer.
Protect YQVrSvlf - Use Sun-
Choose a sunscreen for your
skin type. If you burn easily choose
a higner SPF. Achieve your tan
slowly without burning. Try to
avoid midday tanning from 10:00
AM to 2:00 PM when the sun is the
most intense. Use a sunscreen and
don't stay in the sun for more than
an hour. Your body takes in all the
sun it's going to for the day within
the first hour. After that, you're
wasting your time.
Note: Often sunburn doesn't
show up until after you've gotten
out of the sun. Also, it is possible
to get tanned and burnt on a cloudy

Zealanders take cup to court
Zealand has won in court what it
didn't win on the high seas ?
sailing's coveted America's Cup.
But the San Diego Yacht Club
hasn't decided whether it will
relinquish the sport's oldest tro-
phy without an appeal.
"This is not a hollow victory
when you see the issues that were
at stake Michael Fay, leader of
the New Zealand sailing syndi-
cate, said Tuesday after a New
York judge ruled that San Diego's
defense of the Cup was illegal.
"The real winner is the Cup and
its traditions Fay said from New
Kiwi joy contrasted with
shock and bitterness in San Diego.
"There is a feeling that we' ve been
had yacht club attorney Mark
Smith said.
A decision on whether to
appeal will be made in the next
few days, after attomevs brief the
boards of the vacht club and its
event organizer, the America's
Cup Organizing Committee, said
club Commodore Pat Goddard.
The 138-year-old silver cup will
remain in San Diego until the
decision is made, said Goddard.
Skipper Dennis Conner had
sailed the twin-hulled Stars and
Stripes to an easy sweep of the
Mercury Bay Boating Club's
single-hulled New Zealand last
September. Conner's 60-foot cata-
maran was lighter, faster and more
maneuverable than its 133-foot
But in the first disqualifica-
tion in the event's history, New
York state judge Carmen Ciparick
called the best-of-three series a
"gross mismatch" and said San
Diego had "paid lip service to the
Cup as a competitive event
The judge said the 102-year-
old Deed of Gift that governs the
race does not specify a boat size or
number of hulls. But, she said,
"the conclusion is inescapable"
that George Schuyler, who estab-
lished the race, "contemplated the
defending vessel to relate in some
way to the specifications of the
Ciparick said she had no al-
ternative but to award the Cup to
New Zealand, although she ac-
knowledged it was a "drastic
remedy" because of the trophy's
economic significance and pres-
tige. Studies indicated San Diego
stood to gain up to $1.2 billion
from its planned international
regatta to defend the Cup in 1991
or 1992.
Fav, a merchant banker who
has financed New Zealand's sail-
ing and legal battles the last three
years, said Mercury Bay would be
host of the next Cup defense at
Auckland, New Zealand, in April
1991, barring an appeal or other
delays. Conner, who learned of
the ruling while on a business trip
inAustralia, said he will wait for
the yacht club's decision about an
appeal before deciding whether
to skipper a boat in the next
America's Cup.
"I'm disappointed, naturally,
because we worked hard to win
it he said. The Cup was first won
in 1851 by the yacht America in a
race against several boats of the
Royal Yacht Club in England.
In 1857, the America syndi-
cate deeded the Cup to the New
York Yacht Club with a trust docu-
ment establishing the competition
and its terms. The deed was re-
vised in 1882 and again in 1887.
The New York group kept the
Cup for 131 years before losing
under Conner's command to the
Royal Perth Yacht Club of Austra-
lia in 1983 at Newport, R.I. The
San Diego club, led by Conner,
won the Cup in 1987 in Australia.
The Mercury Bay group, led
by Fay, asked the court in July
1987, for the right to challenge San
Diego in a boat larger than the 12-
meter yachts that had been used
in Cup contests since 1956. The
judge agreed in November 1987,
and Conner decided to use a cata-
maran in his defense.
She refused Fay's request that
Conner be found in contempt for
using such a vessel. Goddard
contended the judge's ruling was
"a complete reversal of her previ-
ous decisions" on which the club
based its catamaran defense.
County Supervisor Brian Bil-
bray, head of San Diego Amer-
ica's Cup Task Force, also attacked
the ruling. "Michael Fay has al-
ways used the judges because he
couldn't win on the water Bil-
bray said. "Sailors in the water,
not attorneys in court, should

Researchers get into residues
tn is your
DURHAM (AD ? Scientists
at the Research Triangle Institute
are developing a simpler and faster
test to detect pesticide residues, a
move that could help government
regulators in assuring that the
country's food supply is safe.
The test uses monoclonal anti-
bodies and should make it pos-
sible to screen more crops for
pesticide residue in the field rather
than at a laboratory. Conceivably,
the test could be used for on-site
inspection of produce by super-
market owners or for home in-
spection by concerned consum-
Standard pesticide residue
tests used by government regula-
tors are often time-consuming and
must be done in the laboratory by
experts. The monoclonal antibody
test could be taken out of the lab
and into the fields, allowing gov-
ernment inspectors to test more
food at a lower cost, said Dr. Carol
Whisnant, an immunologist at the
Research Triangle Institute and co-
chairman of the research.
The antibody test being de-
veloped by the non-profit insti-
tute in the Research Triangle Park
is based on enzyme immunoassay
technology. The technology has
been widely used to develop clini-
cal antibody tests for the detection
of natural substances or drugs in
humans, but has only recently
been applied in the field of agri-
The pesticide residue test
works in much the same way as a
pregnancy test. In a pregnancy
test an antibody binds to a
hormone found in the urine, caus-
ing a biochemical reaction that
indicates if a woman is pregnant.
Likewise, certain antibodies de-
rived from mouse cells are sensi-
tive to pesticide residues and bind
to them.
A chemical reaction occurs
that can be measured to deter-
mine if pesticide residue is pres-
ent. The Food and Drug Admini-
stration, which is sponsoring the
institute's research on pesticide
residue tests, is interested in a
faster method of spot-checking
foods, said Dr. Marion Clower.
He is acting chief of the Pesti-
cides and Industrial Chemicals
branch of the FDA and project
director of the research at the
Research Triangle Institute. The
antibody test is not expected to
replace more sophisticated labo-
ratory testing but will provide a
faster screening method, he said.
A drawback is that the test
does not indicate the amount of
pesticide residue in food, which is
needed to determine if levels ex-
ceed those set by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency, Clower
said. The test will only determine
if a chemical residue is present.
Clower said most of the food
tested by the FDA does not have
any detectable levels of pesticide
residue. The antibody test may be
the only test needed for a majority
of the foods sampled, he said.
Scientists are also concerned
about the problem of false nega-
tives in the antibody test. "The
experience with immunoassays
(for detecting pesticide residue) is
not nearly that great and since this
is a test that has biological origins
there are a number of biological
components that could be in-
volved in the reaction and inter-
fere with the test Clower said.
Several biotechnology compa-
nies have developed antibody tests
for screening pesticide residue, but
state and federal pesticide regula-
tors remain skeptical about the
products. "There are a lot of ifs in
this simplified testing right now
and it's hard to get information
from the manufacturer said Joel
Padmore, assistant director of the
state Department of Agriculture's
Food and Drug Protection Divi-
The division is studying one
of the antibody test kits for pesti-
cide residue, but has not had the
product long enough to determine
if it works as claimed, he said. The
state would be able to test a larger
percentage of North Carolina's
crops with a faster and simpler
pesticide residue test, said Robert
Ccrdon, director of the state's
Food and Drug Protection Divi-
The state does not keep track
of the percentage of North Caro-
lina's foods that are tested, but
Gordon said the state's 20 inspec-
tors take samples from crops tor
testing thoughout the growing
seasons. Gordon said he believes
thefruitsand vegetables grown in
the state are safe.
North Carolina spent SI.3
million on pesticide residue test-
ing on foods last year and con-
ducted 335,000 analyses on food
and drugs at the laboratory in
Raleigh. The state tests about 195
pesticides used on crops in North
Carolina, agriculture officials said.

ECU purchases parking lot for 5th street entry
The university purchased a
parking lot adjacent to Fletcher
dorm from the city Wednesday. This
lot will be turned into a 5th street
visual entrance to campus. This is
one of the best accomplishments on
the university's part towards both
the campus beaurification and im-
age enhancement goals.
This plot of land being sold to
ECU is the result of the university
and the city working together. It is a
positive move towards improving
community and campus relations to
an even more comfortable relation-
The landscaping of this lot will
add something different to the looks
of East Carolina and will give the
university something new to be
proud of. The two larger campuses
in North Carolina, N. C State and
UNC, already have such entrances.
Since ECU is the third largest in the
state and in the same league as these
schools, visual improvements are
important if this university is to be
looked at and respected as such.
The turn-out
Eleven percent is still not up to par
A mere 11 percent of the students
at ECU turned out to vote Tuesday.
That was enough to narrow the
choices down for a run-off, but it
was not enough to show real sup-
port for candidates who are con-
cerned about taking the Student
Government Association in a new
and better direction.
Next Wednesday, there will be a
second chance for those who didn't
make it to the polls. Valeria Lassiter
and Tripp Roakes had the majority
of votes for president and will need
that same 11 percent plus extra en-
couragement from voters in the run-
off elect,v .
The mecL:al students are the
only ones with a valid reason for not
voting. Compared to the six ballot
boxes on campus, there were none
placed at either the Allied Health
Building or the ECU Medical
School. Last year there was a box at
Allied Health, but it's been a few
years since there was one at the
Medical School. Perhaps more vol-
unteers can be found to sit at boxes at
those two important areas next
Wednesday. The run-off will be a
close one and every vote will be
important in deciding the outcome.
Eleven percent! Thafs compa-
rable to the percent that did not vote
in the Russian elections. It's easy to
complain about leadership and rep-
resentation, but yet if s harder to
take the time to vote. Or so thafs
how the unwritten argument goes.
Take the time to vote in the run-
off elections.

various campus publications. There
are three great ways to become in-
1. Submit any color or black
and white prints that are taken on
April 4 to the Buccaneer office lo-
cated in the Publications building.
Prints should include full name and
phone number on the back.
2. Call either 752-9668 or 757-
6994 with your ideas and sugges-
tions for events that are going on that
day, which are campus or organiza-
tion related. . .
3. Smile and herveyour photo
taken. Photographers will be every-
where so cooperate with them to
make this a fun event for all.

Insulted again
To the editor:
Once again, the East Carolinian
has succeeded in insulting the intelli-
gence of its readership with its bla-
tant sexism. We are referring to the
cartoon in the March 16 edition
which showed a nude woman in a
field of shamrocks. The undersigned
would like to go on record in protest
against this portrayal of women as
mere sexual objects and to urge the
staff of the newspaper to attend the
showing of the film "Still Killing Us
Softly" on Wednesday, April 5, at 7
pm in the Joyner Library. This film
shows how women are treated by the
media at large and how this image
keeps women from attaining an
equal footing in American society.
Once you become aware of your re-
sponsibility as journalists, we are
sure that you will cease this attack on
the female half of our population.

Women's roles
To the editor.
Here we go again. The Pirate
"Welcome Back" cartoon last fall
which created so much controversy
obviously did not teach anybody a
lesson. Once more, The East Carolin-
ian staff has seen fit to further de-
grade the value and the humanity of
women on campus.
The "Happy St. Patrick's Day"
cartoon (March 16 edition) was not
directed at the majority of students at
ECU?i.e women who constitute 56
percent of the campus' total popula-
tion. (It should be noted that all 56
percent pay student fees which help
support The East Carolinian.)
Why do we find the cartoon so
offensive? It serves to objectify
women which, in turn, perpetuates
our culturally-diminished status.
Why is a woman's nude, passive
body paired with a holiday? Is she to
be plucked like a mere shamrock and
worn as a symbol or ornamentation?
What outrage men would feel if a
similar cartoon were to depict a nude
man lying on his back with an occa-
sional, strategically-placed sham-
rock! A man in such a passive state
would be viewed as an anomoly, not
as a representation of the whole male
population. Contrastly, the passivity
shown in the cartoon is meant to
depict the "natural" state of women.
If this shameless policy of undis-
guised sexism continues, all students
should encourage advertisers to ref-
use payment on ads appearing in
issues with material that serves to
degrade any group or individual. We
would also urge these advertisers to
discontinue their support of The East
Carolinian so as to not themselves be
connected with these sexist policies.
Bad portrayal
To the editor:
Historically, women have been
depicted in literature and in the
media as symbols of purity and deca-
dence, spiritual refinement and
moral abasement. They have been
shown to be mere objects of sexual
desire and witches capable of chang-
ing the forces of the universe. None of
these portrayals is accurate, of
course, for none show women to be
aggregate human beings capable of
thought and emotion. But it is just
this type of distorted imagery that is
being perpetuated by cartoons such
as the one which appeared in you
March 16 edition. (The drawing
showed a naked woman whose bodv
was concealed only partiallv bv

solicit reader respotxse ? fot w&v
you have not so soon forgotten the
lessons learned last fall in the infa-
mous "Welcome Back, Pirates" inci-
dent! Could it be that sensitization
needs to be renewed periodically? If
so, I suggest that the entire staff of
The East Carolinian ? along with
students concerned about the image
of women on campus ? attend "Still
Killing Us Softly" on Wednesday.
April 5. This 30 minute film, to be
shown at 7 pm in Joyner Library
illustrates the treatment of women by
the media and how this degradation
keeps women from attaining equal
status in our society, the film is co-
sponsored by the Greenville Chapter
of NOW and the Women's Studie
Alliance, a campus-based student or-
ganization. After viewing this en-
lightening work, I am confident that
you will no longer feel the need to
objectify and degrade your mothers
sisters, and your friends.

Tanker disaster motivates look at alternative energy sources
Ten million gallons. Ten million gallons.
Thafs the amount of oil that an Exxon
tanker, the Exxon Valdez, spilled off the
coast of Alaska Friday. The spill may ruin
the supply of fish available to several Alas-
kan fishing villages, and it threatens miles
of coastline which have never before been
exposed to such contaminants. It is causing
horrible damage to marine life in the area of
the spill, and the problem will get worse
before it gets better.
The event is even more tragic given that
stupidity and carelessness were its main
causes. The Exxon Valdez ran aground on a
well-known reef. The tanker probably
would have avoided grounding altogether
had it not been under the control of the
ship's third mate, who was not certified to
pilot it in those waters.
Even at that the spill might not have
occurred, or might at least have been less
severe, had the ship been equipped with a
protective second null. The second hull is
not a required feature on tankers, but it is
commonly in use. The Exxon Valdez should
have had one, or it should have been as-
signed to a different route and a safer tanker
should have taken its place.
This incident is a good reminder of why
we need to develop alternate sources of
power. A somewhat better power source
than oil and coal is nudear power. To fore-
stall the moat obvious objection: yes, nu-
clear power produces waste too. Last week,
though, scientists produced the first con-
trolled nuclear fusion reaction.
All man-made nuclear reactors in exis-
tence use nuclear fission. Fusion is better
ifs harder to pull off, but it produces more
energy and lew waste. Plus, a fusion reac-
tion does not pose the danger of meltdown
that a fission reaction poses; the process
generally shuts itself down if something
goes wrong.
Fossil fuel-burning plants, though they
also release radiation into the environment
merely redistribute radiation that was al-
ready present in the environment; they do
not, like nuclear power, add to the net bal-
ance of potentially dangerous radiation.
Too, construction of a nuclear reactor can
cost millions or even billions of dollars, and
a reactor is so contaminated as to be almost
useless within thirty years. Despite its other
advantages, a fusion reactor would con-
taminate itself faster and so would require
shutdown sooner. Hence, nuclear fusion is
not as cost-effective a method of energy
production as it seems at first glance.
Whafs left? Well, does anybody re-
member solar power? One of the more tell-
ing actions taken by the Reagan administra-
tion was the removal of a solar panel that
the Carter administration had had in-
stalled. Reagan also practically removed
solar power from the national agenda.
Granted, the technology which enables
us to generate solar power needs improve-
ment. For example, solar power generation
on a large scale requires large amounts of
land. But spending the same amount of
money on solar power that has been spent
on nuclear power would certainly yield
improvements. Its worth a try.
Not all the benefits are environmental.
President Bush would benefit politically by
implementing a new national energy policy
that encouraged the development of solar
energy. One advantage for him and the
country is that broader use of solar power
would lessen America's dependence on
OPEC nations for energy.
A more important immediate plus for
the administration, though, is that it would
finally stand a chance of being perceived as
active. The administration has been drift-
ing, directionless, hard pressed to refute
claims that, for all his campaign talk, Bush
cannot even manage to "keep on track" and
"stay the course
So wouldn't it be great for everyone
involved if Bush helped the nation harness
all that energy contained in a thousand
points of light?

lower students' GPAs has gener-
ated some concern among student
But G.W. kalmus, Chairman
of the Credits Committe and a
leading proponent of the plan, says
According to Paul Puckett,
chairman of the Election Commit-
tee, approximately 1,696 students
voted. "Voter turn out was the
best we've had in a long time
Puckett said. He said no com-
plaints have been filed concern-
ing the election.
Puckett will need volunteers
to tend the polls during next
Wednesday's run-off election.

that students are already aware of
the fraction of the grade, despite
the fact that the current GPA sys-
tem is not essentially a system
that recognizes letter grades as
fractional numbers.
"The object is not to see how
we can lower the students' GPA
Kalmus said, "But how we can
better evaluate those students
Kalmus commented that, as
a teacher, he would be more will-
ing under the new system to give
a borderline student a higher
"If 1 had a chance to give you
a B I'd give it. Otherwise I'd proba
bly give you a C
Responding to the concern
that the lower grade points will
keep some students from gradu-
ating, Kalmus said that the resolu-
tion will have little impact on the
status of graduating seniors. He
added that since the new grading
system is optional, students will
have the choice between a teacher
who uses the new grading system
or one who doesn't.
"It's a more accurate reflec-
tion of what the grades actually
are Kalmus said. "I think many

Open Mike at Deli
Staff Wrfcat
Amateur bands, soloists, or
anyone willing to try, can test their
abilities on Open Mike Night,
every Wednesday, at the New
Deli. The newest taleits present a
variety of music from rhythm and
blues to classical rock and roll.
Participants sign up by Wednes-
day afternoon, and show at vari-
ous times throughout the night.
Barbara McDade, fifth year
manager of the New Deli, said
Open Mike Night has been a part
of their restaurant and tavern, for
about three strong years. David
Mercer, once night manager, in-
corporated the idea, to liven up
the tavern, after having seen the
act work for other clubs. Over the
years, the act came and went, but
popularity held it to stay in 1987.
Most of the acts range from 30
minutes to one hour, McDade said,
and members vary from one to
four. Many bands include lyrics
from songs done by such greats as
Bob Dylan and Led Zepplin. Oth-
ers may include members from
different bands organizing a jam
session, which McDade says is the
best music.
On a good night, these bands
can have from 100 to 150 people as
an audience. Exposure, such as
this is excellent for an amateur
McDade said she has seen
many excellent performances on
many different occasions. Experi-
enced artists, such as J.W.
Rayburn, one time Amateur
member and Landy Spain of the
Rhythm Persuaders, have en-
graced the crowd in the past, with
their electrifying music.
McDade also said even their
chief cook Steve Alexander, has
Wednesday nights off, just so he
can participate in the event. Many
locals often perform regularly,
returning to a receptive audience.
These performers can add up to
an enjoyable night with, "only
good music as said by Kathy
Hilly, a loyal local patron.

Early Tuesday morning, pho-
tographers will be snapping pic-
tures all over the Greenville area.
"24 Hours at ECU" will begin at
approximately 3a.m. and continue
until the following Wednesday
morning at 3.
Walters got the idea of pre-
senting a photo collection of cam-
pus life in the 1989 issue of the
Buccaneer from similar books
about the lifestyles of different
countries. These books contain
dozens of photos that depict the
life and atmosphere of places like
Russia, Japan, and the United
On April 4, Walters will be
handing out 25 Fuji 135mm dis-
posable cameral to various uni-
versity department heads. The
idea is to illustrate in the yearbook
different aspects of campus life,
from the residence halls to sports
activities. The photos will cover a
ten-page spread in the Buccaneer.
"We want the entire campus
involved, but we don't have much
time. Our deadline for the year-
book is April 20, and we have to
have everything ready by then
said Walters.
Some of the different people
that Walters hopes to involve in-
clude Chancellor Eakin, the new
SGA and SRA presidents. Dean
Fulghum for housing, Dave Hart
for athletics, and Rudolph Alex-
ander for the new construction of
Mendenhall. All of these people
will receive a camera with one roll
of color film, and after the film is
developed, the camera will be
thrown away.
Disposable cameras are very
popular with tourists and usually
cost about $9.95 each. Walters or-
dered the Fujis from Wolf Camera
for only $4 each, and they have
also agreed to help with the costs
of developing the film.

'Watchers' for youth
Staff Writer
Movie critics should be re-
quired to give their age before
embarking on their review of a
movie. The reason is that, increas-
ingly, movies are being focused
on narrow portions of the Ameri-
can movie-going population. The
group most frequently targeted
by Hollywood has been, logically,
that portion that is most profit-
able: movie patrons in their mid-
to-late teens (15-21). If the reviewer
doesn't identify with this particu-
lar group he or she is often ex-
cluded from the experience.
"Watchers" has been given
early release in GA, NC, SC, and
VA as a trial indicator for the rest
of the nation. Most theater owners
in the designated states dislike this
practice because the films are run
without the major ad campaigns
which normally accompany big-
budget releases. Consequently,
these potential box-office hits of-
ten play to miniscule numbers.
Such is the fate of "Watchers
"Watchers" the movie is
loosely based on "Watchers" the
book, a best-seller by Dean R.
Koontz. The book is a super sci-
ence fiction thriller and one of only
two paperbacks I have ever com-
pleted outside school. Corey Haim
plays the lead character, Travis
Cornell. On sneaking home from
a late-night rendezvous with this
girlfriend (played by Lala Zappa)

Instead, they sent a gust of

five u "las whistled out and
flew through the air like like a
bunch of money flying through
the air at 70 mph.
Bills landed on the asphalt
and in the swamps, and a small
robin got away with a fiver. We
stopped and managed to recover
most of it.
We sped on. Finding the
hotel was not a problem. Paying
for it was. Members of our party
had been wrongfully informed .
as to how much of the room they
were to pay for.
Amid much grumbling, they
forked over their share and we
trudged up to the room, the grey
sky faces of the gods laughing at
us, laughing at our audacity in
trying to escape from Greenville.
That night, the majority of
the crew wanted to go to Crazy
Zack's, a bar known for having a
plethora of babesbut also a cover
charge unheard of by mere mor-
tals. Assured by The Goddess
that she knew the bouncers, we
forged ahead.
Twenty minutes and $45
later, we were inside. It took an
hour to make our way to the out-
side deck. We met several people
from ECU, but not one of them
had heard of me. Humbled by
my insignificance, I sat quietly
and drank.
Several of our group got into
fights witheachother. After deal-
ing with various ETs (emotional
trips), we quit the Zack's scene
in favor of somewhere more
soothing: Far s.
Boasting matchbooks im-
printed with the slogan busted

we'd found a haven for the rest
of our trip. We played pool (and

only as "Cuts" twice) and poured
many alcoholic libations down
our throats in honor of the gods.
We danced to Hank Williams
Jr. songs and went home, con-
tented, drunk and racing to find
sleeping space.
Saturday dawned blue and
clear. We journeyed to the Budfcst
and began laying out near a stage.
Cool, we figured. Maybe later
there'll be a band.
And, oh, yes. There was a
band. A religious band We spenl
the rest of the afternoon hearing
religiously-inspired versions of
pop crap like "That's What Friends
are For and smash hits like
"Search Your Soul and "Jesus

The band gave up when the
peep show started. A bunch ot
drunk females, encouraged by
their even more drunk bo friends
began lifting up their bikini tops
and shaking their pendulous
More and more girl began
disrobing, and two guvs climbed
to the top of the hotel and mooned
the masses. The masses responded
by pelting them with beer cans.
Eventually, the nakedness
ceased,and it was time to go home.
We showered, dressed and a te tree

So we made our way into the
night. Instead of trying anywhere
else, we went straight to Fat's. The
Bobster kept whining about going
toexpensivedancebars to pick up
wimmen, but we told him to keep
his hormones in check.
We played pool. We made the
mistake of turning on the over-
head light. Fats himself came over
and glared at us until we turned it
oil. Sheepishly, we went back to
plaving pool.
Then luggage-Vomit Lad
came over and turned on the light
again. Fats stalked over to inform
us that if we wanted to stay here,
that light was not to go on again
We glared at L-V Lad and he hid
in the bathroom for an hour.
When he came out, we for-
gave him and bought him some
shots. We tried lots of different
ones Tequila, Blow Jobs, Brains,
and Fireballs. It was the Fireballs
that caused Luggage-Vomit Lad
his later problems.
He was out of it by the time
we busted our last balls at Fat's.
We got him to the car. We lost the
spare tire going over a curb and a
cop looked at us funny, but we
made it to the hotel. We opened
the back door for L-V I ad.
He sat up and puked. It hit in
between his sneakers, and splat-
tered the pavement. He contin-
ued for five minutes. We went in-
side the hotel and searched for
more alcohol.
We hooked up with some
friendly but slightly inbred red-
neck girls. They gave us great
quantities of beer. Even though L-
V Lad was wasted, he insisted on
going with us to their room.
As we entered into the Sin-
ner-For-The-Night stage of the
party, L-V began to turn char-
treuse. Then aqua. Then grass-col-
ored. Then that famous shade of
this-is-really-it, nothing's-going-
to-stop-me-now, I'm-puking-and-
I'm-puking-right-now green.
But he didn't move. He sat
there on the bed, his face color
shifting up and down the spec-
trum, and didn't move. Finally, he
let loose all over the girls' lug-
We w ere i n vi ted to leave, more
politely than you might imagine.
We put L-V Lad out on the roof
ledge under our window and bade
him good night
We awoke to his streams of
terror. He was clawing at the ledge,
trying to hang on. We let him in
and headed for the beach. As we
opened thedoor, theRickster came
in. We hadn't seen him since Fri-
day, and he told us he'd been
playing golf for 60 hours straight.
He collapsed on the bed, and we
laying out for two days in a
row turned our skins an attractive
shade of neon red. Some of u s took

The Mood
To the movie'l,credit there isa
goodly amount of killing, but
there's not enough blood and gore
to make it the R-rated thriller it
contends to be. It's safe to say the
initial storyline has been turned
insideout to cash inon Mr. Haim's
popularity as a member of the
younger version of the Brat Pack.
Final verdict: This isa good movie
for the average mall-rat who's just
bought the new Poison CD with a
$20 bill, gotten $5 back in change,
and has two hours to kill before
Mom picks him up in the family

Good evening and welcome this week to Chris' Corner, a new feature that
will be bouncing on and off of the page. Chris is our photo-guy, or known also
as The Darkroom Man From Hell. In a good sense. Since he has to look at all
the comics at least three times to get them shot right (Jus' kiddin'), we figured
he was best suited to do a report and review of each one. Also, this may help
some of you newcomers to the page. Take it away, Cameraman.
Wins funniest strip of the week. You can see
what it is for yourself, a hilarious step into
some other strips. (Hditor's note: I think it
ranks up with the famous VValkin' the Plank
beer commercial) Consistently good and on
time; we're uoing to miss this one.
This latest one does a take-off of the
Japanese cartoons. Since most of the ones made
fun of aren't dubbed in English, you probably
haven't seen them, and may not get the jokes.
So? Like the little Buddhist dude.
Gambda Gambda Hey!?
Rik (now Elliott) is movin' on up the comics
ladder with this new strip, the adventures of
two frat guys and a cat. Hey, a bit narcisstic, a
good name- it'll soon make everyone forget
Inside Joke.
Another fine strip gracing the page. Used to
be all horror, now ifs funny, and entertaining.
It may look intimidating, but you can follow
the plot, trust me. I liked when reality warped.
The Law?
Feminism strikes a big blow this week, right
in The Law's face. I can understand Ms.
America? if someone fell on me from a twenty
story building and made a crack about my
breasts, I'd get ill too. Good strip; still waiting
for The One to return, Steve. Hint hint.
The Avatar?
Lookin' good. Creative, artistic, maybe a
little too deep at times. Definitely a strip you
should cut out and save to read all at once. This
week, that precomous Alexi Questor finishes
telling how he became The Nebulae Spectre.
Nix' Fix-
Well . . . the first few strips gave some
chuckles, but lately, . . I've seen funnier
funerals. An obvious joke, no art. And who is
that guy? Bush? None of us could agree on it.
Can't win 'em all.

ironically, the same price the early

The university hopes to de-
velop the land and turn it into a
parking deck, complete with a
small sh( pping center on the 23rd

he applied pressure ashe shouted,

With an elbow to the Purple

Hurtin into the wall, and as Hurtin

Pirates strike late, split with Seahawks
Sl?ff Writer
The Lady Pirates were on the
road Tuesday at UNC-Wilming-
ton splitting a double-header with
the Seahawks.
I he Pirates captured the first
game of the double-header by the
score of 6-2. Jenifer Sagl was the
winning pitcher for the Pirates
holding the Seahawks to four hits.
The Pirates trailed the
Seahawks by one run until the
sixth inning when Chris Byrne
walked, Leslie Cramer sacrificed
and Kathy Schrage singled to pick
up an RBI.
In the seventh inning, the Pi-
rates bats exploded after Donna
Welter walked and Laura Crow-
der sacrificed. Mickey Ford and
Wendy Tonkerboth doubled, with
Tonker picking up two RBI's.
Bvrne walked while Tonker scored
on a passed ball. Byrne added
another run to the books when
Cramer singled.
The Pirates had a total of seven
hits in the game with Tracy Lee
leading the pack going 2-3.
In the second game, the
Seahawks jumped out in front
again scoring four runs in the first
The Pirates didn't fight back
until the sixth inning when Ford

The Pirates fell short three
runs losing to the Seahawks 5-2.
UNC-W had a total of eight hits,
while the Pirates had seven.

last Carolina capped off a
three-game series against William
& Mary on Monday and contin-
ues their second best start in Fi-
nite history. Over the course of 18
games, boasts a 16-2 record.
The 1986 Piratebaseball team,
also coached under fifth year Head
Coach Gary Overton, had the best
King of the mound
start in ECU history as they were
17-1 at this point and went on to
finish the season with a 40-10 rec-
ord. This broke the mark for most
wins in a season at ECU.
The Buc's 4-0 win over the
Tribe Monday in Williamsburg,
Va marked their fourth straight
shutout and their sixth win in a
row of the season. They have also
won nine of the last 10 games.
Unlike some teams who win
ugly, the Pirates are playing solid
baseball. They not only lead the
Colonial Athletic Association in
both hitting (.318) and earned run
average (2.41), but they are also
nationally ranked in the Collegiate
Baseball Magazine. East Carolina
is tied for fourth in the nation with
Clemson for team ERA with a 2.49.
However, the Pirates lowered that
figure over the weekend to 2.29.
ECU pi tcher Jonathan Jenkins
also reigns as the nation's earned
run average leader. Jenkins, who
pitched 25 innings, has a mere .36

passed former ECU head coach

particular statistic of a sport. That
makes you feel untouchable
doesn't it? That just may be how-
junior Jonathan Jenkins feels right
now, because he is the best in the
nation in earned run average as
far as college pitchers are con-
cerned. His 0.36 ERA along with
his perfect 5-0 start has him lead-
ing the polls.
When Jenkins, nicknamed
"JJ was asked about this prestig-
ious title, he responded by saying
" It feels pretty good, but at any
time that stat (statistic) can
The 6-foot-7,195 pound hurler
is the hottest thing on the Pirates'
pitching staff right now, and he
has a perfect career mark of 10-0
while playing at East Carolina. He
has a chance to tic teammate Jake
Jacobs' school record for most
conocutiye victories in a rareer
(11) on Sunday facing conference
rival George Mason in Harring-
ton Field at 1 p.m
Although not pitching in any
of the Pirates games during the
last two weeks due an illness,
Jenkins hopes for a good, strong
come back against the Patriots.
Jenkins' pitching has already
sent 29 batters back to the dug out
with a big "K" (a baseball term
for strike-out) in the scorcbook
beside their name. In 25 innings,
hehason!ygivenupl5hitsand 11
walks. In other words, every other
inning, one batter may be lucky
enough to get hold of one of his
pitches. At a whopping 85 mph
hitters are finding it difficult to
even hit one of his pitches.
"It just depends on what is
going over the plate as to what I'll
pitch Jenkins said. "My break-
ing ball is coming around
The one thing Jenkins will not
do is take all of the credit for
himself. He relies on the defense
to back him up, and the team has
certainly come around for him.
"They have come up with
some great plays Jenkins contin-
ued, "especially the double plays
Jenkins played for Culpcpcr
County High School in Culpeper,
Va. where he received 8 letters (4
in baseball and 4 in basketball),
was nominated to the all-district
team, and compiled a 10-0 record
his senior year with a 1.86 ERA.
The junior hurler is majoring
in physical education and has
future plans of playing for the
Pittsburgh Pirates, if they draft
him. During the summer, Jenkins
played for the Madison Blue Jays
of the Valley League in Virginia, a
league designed for college sopho-
mores, juniors, and rising seniors.
While playing, it gives pro scouts
an opportunity to look at some of
the top prospective college play-
Jenkins credits the team,
Coach Gary Overton, and his
parents for his success thus far.
"When I was young, my par-
ents didn't force me to play, it was
all my decision he continued. "I
just wanted to play
As far as Coach Overton's
credit is concerned, Jenkins just
thanks him for giving him a
"Coach is an inspiration to us
all he continued. "I'm just glad
that he has believed in me and
stuck with me. He's taught me a
lot and he brings out the best in all
of us
Jenkins gives Coach Overton
and his parents a lot of credit, but
the main inspiration according to
Jenkins is his teammates.
"We' ve won here before, gone
to Regionals, and I think we have
a good chance of going again, so
long as we play good in the con-
ference he explained. "There are
a lot of us here left from my fresh-
man year, and I think that we can
do it again
In Jenkins freshman year, he
gained some valuable experience
as he was put on the mound ma -
game against Central Michigan in
the NCAA tournament. Even
though the Pirates lost that game,
they gained something more valu-
able than they would have ever
imagined, a confident pitcher.
Jenkins pitches and bats right
handed, and has played a key role
in the success of the Pirates thus
far. At 16-2, they certainly deserve
more recognition, both state-wide
and nationally. In fact, ECU is
currently tied with Clemson at
fourth place nationally for lean
earned run average at 2
Jenkins is taking one game at
a time,but he admits thatthe April
6th showdown with North Caro-
lina State (ECU'S first night game-
7p.m.) at Harrington Field prom-
ises to be a great game. 1 he Pirate -
beat the Wolfpack earlier in the
season 5-3 in ten innings in
Raleigh, and the Pack is looking
for a shot to get even.
"1 just hope that the students
will come out to more games
-Jenkins added. "It helps the team
out a whole lot when there are
fans out supporting us
Although enkins' laid-back
lifestyle won't allow him to take
any credit, his services to the team
are invaluable. Along with senior
Jake Jacobs' talents, as well as the
other Pirate hurlcrs, ECU oppo
nents will find it very difficult to
find hits or score runs as the sea-
son progresses.

Friday and Saturday, March
24 and 25, the 1989 men's outdoor
track team traveled to the Sun-

came home boasting two first place
finishes in the sprint relay events.
Split into two divisions, the
open collegiate and collegiate
invitational, the Pirates partici-

BOSTON (AP) ? A man who
met Cincinnati Reds' manager
Pete Rose as a college baseball
player in Florida says the belea-
guered manager liked to go to the
race track and once bought a
Porsche the day after a big win at
a Las Vegas casino.
Tommy Gioiosa also said he
placed bets for Rose at race tracks
because baseball's all-time hit
leader didn't like to go to the bet-
ting windows where he would be
bothered by fans, Gioiosa said.
"Pete liked to go to the track
Gioiosa told The Boston Sunday
Globe. "He would bet $2,000 or
$4,000 or $8,000 maybe between
$4,000 and $10,000, but Pete was
good at it. I'd say overall that
Pete is ahead with his gambling
Michael Fry, a former gym
owner now in prison for cocaine
trafficking and income-tax eva-
sion, recently told Sports Illus-
trated that he heard that Gioiosa
had placed bets for Rose on bas-
ketball and football games.
Gioiosa, a college baseball
player when he met Rose in 1978,
declined comment when the Globe
asked if he ever placed bets with a
bookie for Rose.
However, in an interview with
The Standard-Times of New
Bedford published last week,
Gioiosa denied making such bets.
"I made no bets like that. We'd
go to the track together all the
time. Every night, sometimes day
and night. And sometimes I'd go
to the track for Pete.
"I've got nothing bad to say
about the guy. He bought me my
first Porsche Gioiosa said.
Gioiosa said he was sched-
uled to meet today with represen-
tatives of the commissioner's of-
fice, which is investigating allega-
tions that Rose broke baseball's
gambling rules.
"I'm still not positive if I'm
going to go Gioiosa said. "I'm
going to talk to Pete and then
take it from there
Spokesman Rich Levin said
the commissioner's office would
not comment on the investigation.
Gioiosa said he lived with
Rose for five years, until Rose and
his first wife were divorced. When
Rose remarried, Gioiosa bought a
condominium nearby and, "I'd be

fast enough to qualify him for the
NCAA's in the 200 meter event.
Placing third in the 400 meter
relay, team members James
Parker, Irving, Wrighton, and

Seton Hall looks to

more looks at the different prob-
lems the Blue Devils will present

NCAA tournament semifinal
game at Seattle.

Carlesimo said he still hasn't
decided how the Pirates, making

"I think there will be a lot of
switching on defense Carlesimo
said, adding that reserve center
Anthony Avent could see a lot of
action against Ferry.
"Anthony is quicker and may
be more athletic than most of our
big men and may play a lot

against the Tribe when they

to score Cauble. Eason came home
on a John Gast grounder.
Sophomore pitcher Mike
Whitten started on the mound and
held William & Mary scoreless
after one inning, but a nagging
elbow injury forced him out of the
ball game after the first inning.
Sophomore John White relieved
Whitten and scattered three hits
over the next five and two-thirds
innings. Brien Berckman replaced
White in the seventh and struck
out three of the seven batters he
White earned the win and
moved his record to 2-0 but Berck-

The Pirates added insurance
runs in the fifth and ninth innings
to secure their 4-0 win over the
Tribe. David Ritchie singled in the
fifth and scored on a William &

Ritchie then scored the final
run of the game in the ninth in-

source, was involved in baseball
betting with Rose.
The SI source said Rose ex-

denied the charge.
Gioiosa also dismissed the
allegation, saying you couldn't bet

over Georgetown in the NCAA
East Regional championship at
East Rutherford, N.J. The winner
of the Naismith Award as the top
college player in the country, he
also was named the outstanding
player in the regional.
Aside from the very large
difference of Ferry, Carlesimo sees
the teams as virtually equal.
'T think there are a lot of simi-
larities Carlesimo said. "Both
teams can shoot from the outside,
both are very good defensively
and are high tempo teams. Duke
is verv balanced offensively and
One example of that balance
is freshman center Christian La-
ettner, who scored a career-high
24 poi nts against Georgetown and
freshman sensation Alonzo
Mourning, while small forward
Robert Bnckey did most of the
damage in he regional semifinal
against Minnesota.
In four tournament games,
Seton Hall has allowed opponents
to hit just 36 of 110 second-half
shots, or 32.7 percent.
Seton Hall outshot and outre-
bounded each team it played in
the tournament, and handed both
Indiana and Nevada-Las Vegas
their worst NCAA losses ever.
Seton Hall beat Indiana 78-65 and
UNLV 84-61.
However, oddsmakers have
made Seton Hall the longshot
among the Final Four teams, which
also include Michigan and Illinois.
