Judge delays decisions
for 'riot' defendants
By SHANNON BUCKLEY
Staff Wnlet
All 134 students arrested on
Halloween at the Tar River Es-
tates "riot" attended court on
Wednesday only to find that their
cases were to be delayed.
Of the 134 students, only 54
requested to have their cases con-
tinued, according to a court source.
The other 80 students' cases were
delayed by Judge W. Russell Duke
Jr. after a motion was made by
Attorney James T. Cheatham to
restrict the use of unedited or "out"
tapes that werelisted on the subpe-
ona issued to WNCT-TV (Chan-
nel 9) by the state of North Caro-
lina.
According to Duke, the trials
were delayed because neither
Betsy Warren, assistant district
attorney, nor Cheatham, WNCT-
TV'sattorney, could present briefs
in support of their argument. Both
attorneys were given until Dec. 5
to present their arguments to the
judge.
Although WNCT-TV asked
that their unedited tapes not be
used in the courtroom, thev did
offer the tapes that had already
been broadcast. Cheatham con-
tended that the subpeonad "out"
tapes, which ha ve not been shown
to the public, "are the same as a
reporter's notes and that WNCT-
TV "has the priviledge not to pro-
duce the tapes
According to Cheatham, re-
quiring WNCT-TV to tender these
tapes would be forcing the me-
dium to be "an investigative arm
?e which would "con-
vert the press into being an advo-
cate for the state A forced sur-
render of the "out" tapes "would
be an unconstitutional infringe-
ment of the First Amendment
rights of Freedom of the Press
the defense attorney said.
In addition to his argument,
Cheatham said that the state must
prove that the information gath-
ered by WNCT-TV was unavail-
able to them. Police had a total of
75 people at the crime scene, and
two video cameras were there
taping. This fact proves that the
information WNCT-TV has was
available to the city, according to
Cheatham.
"These tapes are evidence of
crimes or lack of crimes that oc-
curred this (Halloween) evening
Warren said in response to
Cheatham's arguments. Accord-
ing to Warren, the "out" tapes
"could just as easily clear some-
one as they could show that some-
one is involved
Warren questioned the fact
that a First Amendment right
would be violated by surrender-
ing the tapes. In fact, Warren said,
WNCT-TV's "subsequent actions
waived their right of priviledge
According to Warren, WNCT-TV
showed these tapes to Captain
Nichols of the Greenville Police
Department, therefore waiving
their right of priviledge.
According to the assistant
district attorney, the submission
of these tapes would in no way
restrict WNCT-TV from gather-
ing information in the future. She
said, "The state chose to take the

Art students propose new ideas for signs
ByJAYHAVERTY
Special la The East Carolinian
Many conversations on the
campus are dominated by the
students' negative opinions of the
new building signs here at East
Carolina University. To change
this, two classes in ECU'S Depart-
ment of Communication Arts are
developing 21 new signs which
will be on display Monday in
Mendenhall. These should pro-
vide more options for our admini-
stration to review, according to
Craig Malmrose, a Communica-
tion Arts professor.
The two typography classes
are under the direction of profes-
sors Malmrose and Donal Sexaur.
The students are working stead ily
to finish the drawings and models
for the Monday review. The stu-
dent-designers are encouraging
their peers to review their works
and submit comments about the
designs to aid in their develop-
ment.
New experimental signs are
no w in front of approximately five
buildings on campus, but
Malmrose believes the students
are not content with these choices.
Many of the students do not like
the choices, such as the "tomb-
stone" in front of Flanagan.
Malmrose said he wants to
see a change. "Signage on campus
is not the very best possible. If
thousands and hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars are spent on the
building, then the sign in front of
the building should be represen-
tative, and not cardboard
The signs that are replace-
ments for the old "mobile home"
ones are only here for a short pe-
riod of time. These signs are strictly
temporary, which explains the
simple construction and the dif-
ferences in all of them. The pres-
ent prototypes will be removed
when the final decision is made as
to which design will be used.
The 21 students who are de-
signing the alternatives are using
some traditional elements in their
work, such as the arches that
appear frequently in the
university's architecture. Some of
the new designs also utilize mod-
ernistic features that will update
the atmosphere of the school.
Malmrose said he believesthat
organic tones such as shades of
beige, brown and off-whites are
the best colors to use on the signs
as accents to the buildings. He
said he would like to see a serif
script used for the lettering, which
is very traditional. Malmrose said
he dislikes the present layout of
the signs. "The type has to have

resentative, such as the university
architect, will be present to study
the exhibits. ECU's plan is a grad-
ual one according to Lanier, "we
simply will replace the older signs
first, then, over a period of time,
we will replace them all
Each display has required an
average of 30 hours of work from
the creator each week, and several
weeks have been utilized.
Malmrose is urging the students
to view the models on Monday,
and submit their comments.
Malmrose was a member of
the Campus Beautification Com-
mittee, which disbanded in April
1988 after submitting its report
"Planning for an Academic Envi-
ronment" to the university ad-
ministration. The report was
compiled by the group to point
out changes that should be made
on campus.
Malmrose teaches Communi-
cation Arts classes at East Caro-
lina such as Communication Arts
Survey,Typography, and Graphic
Design I. He began his work at
ECU in 1985, the same year he
graduated from Rochester Insti-
tute of Technology in New York.
Health students volunteer for community services
K( l News Bureau
The students in the freshman-
dominated Health lOOOclassesare
being urged to volunteer their time
to worthy cau ses in exchange for a
couple of points added to their
grades at the end of the semester.
It's an unusual exercise funded by
the federal government to promote
volunteerism.
"The response from both the
students and the community has
been overwhelminglly positive
said Judy B. Baker, a health educa-
tion instructor in the Department
of Health, Physical Education,
Recreation and Safety (HPERS).
"We had no idea when we
started the program it would turn
into something like this she said.
Beginning last spring, stu-
dents taking Health is a Modern
Society (Health 1000), a required
course, were told they could get
two extra credit points by volun-
teering for at least five hours of
work with one of 26 community
agencies. A total of 249 students
signed up.
When their working hours
were tallied the total came to 4,096
hours � more than 16 hours per
student.
"The objective is to instill in
them the importance of commu-
nity service and hope that it will
become a part of their lives said
Baker. So far, she said, the project
seems to be working.
The student volunteers do an
assortment of jobs for such or-
ganizations as the American Red
Cross, Council on the Aging, the
Boys Club, and a program for ter-
minally ill children called the
Dream Factory. For the Red Cross
the students can donate blood or
help with registration during
blood drives.
They help package food and
deliver meais, produce newslet-
ters and give musical programs
for the elderly. At the Boys Club
they serve as tutors, teach arts and
crafts and workin the game rooms.
In the Shelter for Battered
Women, students help care for
children while mothers attend
support groups.
Last spring when the Dream
Factory needed volunteers to help
with a television fund raiser they
called ECU. The students re-
sponded and the agency got all of
the volunteers it needed for the
project.
"The biggest thing they are
doing right now is providing a
service to the community Baker
said. She said many of the volun-
teers have been deeply affected by

"Not only do the students get

federal ACTION grant from the
Federal Domestic Volunteer

She said research is being done
to see how many students do more

Biological researcher discusses diversity
Campus groups sponsor conservationalist speaker
By TOM BARRY
Strff Writer
A guest speaker will discuss
the protection of ecosystems to-
night at 7:30 p.m. in the General
Classroom Building Room 1031.
Tim Werner, a research asso-
ciate for Conservation Interna-
tional, will give a public presenta-
tion entitled "Approaches to the
Challenge of Conserving Global
Biological Diversity
Werner recently studied in
Brazil to determine the minimum
size necessary for ecosystems to
survive. He is the program coor-
dinator for Conservation Interna-
tional working with the Oceania
project which covers the western
Pacific island regions.
Conservation International
combines an integrated approach
to conservation, not only through
research, but also through the
involvement of the public in their
projects from farmers to congress-
men. The focus is on involving a
broad understanding and team
approach to today's ecological
problems. In 1987 the organiza-
tion pioneered the first ever "dept-
for-nature" swap.
Although their headquarters
is in Washington, D.C their ma-
jor projects exist in Latin America
and various third world countries.
Among these countries involved
are Mexico, Bolivia, Costa Rica and
Panama. They are presently initi-
ating a major project in New
Guinea.
The presentation is sponsored
by the Latin American Area Stud-
ies Committee, the Office of Inter-
national Studies, and the ECU
Chapter of Sigma Xi. A brief infor-
mation reception will follow the
meeting.
Scholar speaks on African women
Women's Studies brings feminist speaker to ECU
African feminist critic Molara
Ogundipc-Leslie will speak on
"African Women Writers and
Global Feminism" Monday at 8
p.m. in the General Classroom
Building Room 1031 on the ECU
campus.
A magna cum laude graduate
of the University of London,
Ogundipe-Leslie is the founding
chair of the Engl ish Department at
Ogun State University in Ago-
Iwoye, Nigeria, where she is a
professor. She was active in the
Nigeriangovemmentasexecutive
director of national social mobili-
zation, especially dealing with
women's issues. Ogundipe-Leslie
has played a leading role in global
research and action on women a nd
was among a delegation of women
who presented proposals from
women's perspectives to Soviet
President Mikhail Gorbachev and
former U.S. President Ronald
Reagan.
A scholar in women's studies
and women in development,
Ogundipe-Leslie is also a poet
whose book, Sew the Old Days and
Other Poems, was published in
1985.
Among her publications are
"Not Spinned on the Axisof Male-
ness: The Woman in Nigeria" in
Robin Morgan's Sisterhood is Global
(1984), "Studying the African
Rural Woman Through Imagina-
tive Writing" in Women and Rural
Development in Africa (1986),
"Violence and the Literary Imagi-
nation in Africa: A Study of Select
Texts" to appear in a similarly
titled volume and numerous ar-
ticles on politics and culture. In
Tbe 134 students who were arrested at Tar River Estates on Halloween night appeared in Pitt
County Court Wednesday. In addition to the defendants, the courtroom was filled with lawyers

By bringing pressure on the
Chinese government, through
peti tions and other ways, Al hopes
to demonstrate to the authorities
that international concern and
criticism continues and cannot be
stopped by suppression of infor-
mation. AI has for many years
raised serious human rights con-
cerns with the Chinese authori-
ties, including prisoners of con-
science, unfair trials of political
prisoners, torture and ill-treat-
ment, extra judicial executionsand
the use of the death penalty.
In addition to information
about China, materials and peti-
tions will be available concerning
the local group's adopted "POC"
In AI, each local organization
adopts a specific "prisoner of
conscience" who has been jailed
solely for their beliefs, race or
ethnic origin.
Information will be provided
about Group 402's prisoner of
conscience, a young Yugoslavian
man currently in prison for the
non-violent exercise of his right to
freedom of expression and asso-
ciation. Last year 150 of the pris-
oners of conscience adopted by Al
groups in the USA were released.

Correction
The article entitled "Former
professor passes away" which
appeared in the November 28 edi-
tion of The East Carolinian was
written by Gretchen Joumigan.
mas Haigwood then requested
that the judge delay the cases that
were being tried, because the
WNCT-TV tapes were needed to
prosecute.
The courtroom emptied when
the judge delayed all the Halow-
een "riot" cases. The faces of the
students showed disapointment
as they shuffled out of the court-
room.
"It was just a waste of time.

student, said. "They (the state) had
no evidence, but still kept us in

Ecstasy is a designer drug that can kill j
I've heard of a drug called
ecstasy. What is it?
MDMA (N-Methy-3, 4 meth-
ylenedtoxy amphetamine) or blot-
ter known as "Ecstasv" is a mem-
ber ot a family of semi-synthetic
chemicals known as hallucino-
genic amphetamines.
Ecstasy was originally tested,
and legally shelved as an appetite
suppressant in 114. It broke into
the streets in the late 1960's. In
1985 up to 30,000 doses ot ecstasv
were sold on the street per month
In July, 1985 atter research studies
indicated that MDMA causes
neurological and brain damage.
the US Drug Enforcement Admini-
stration banned the legal use of the
drug
Today, MPMA is listed as a
Schedule ! controlled substance.
This means that, like heroin, it is
not recognized as having any le-
gitimate use's and is illegal under
all circumstances.
On the street, MDMA is sold
in a powder or capsule form and
can be inhaled, injected or swal-
lowed Effects oi the drug begin
within 30 minutes and may last 4-
6 hours.
Many early reportsof the drug
were enthusiastic and claimed
euphoric like "ecstatic" feelings
in its users. More recent informa-
tion has concentrated on the many
negative effects of this drug. In

dose can occur)

that anv substance labeled "ec-

Some ot the ettects of MOM A

brain
According to one study the
drug may attack areas in the brain
that manufacture the neurotrans-
mitter serontonin. Lingering ef-
fects on brain cells are still uncer-
tain.
These are some of the reasons
that MDMA is considered to be
among the "hardest" of the so-
called "soft" drugs. MDMA pro-
duces severe physical and psy-
chological burnout, even at mod-
erate doses. MDMA obviously is
quite a dangerous drug with seri-
ous known and unknown side
effects.

Studies indicate drinking
water is contaminated
By NATHANIEL MEAD
Stall Hnlrr
Earlier this year, ECU marine
geologist Stan Riggs and cowork-
ers studying the Pamlico River
Estuary reported five "hotspots
well-defined ones where concen-
trations ot toxic heavy metals run
up to 25 times higher than the rest
of th. estuaro. "E xperts trom the
Environmental Protection Agency
were sent out to assess the situ-
ation, but concluded there was no
hazard A month later, however,
the EPA was forced to retract their
statement and even conceded that
some nearby towns' drinking
water supplies were in danger ot
contamination.
One of these "hotspots lo-
cated off Texasgulf Co a larger
fertilizer plant, showed extremely
high concentrations of the heavy
metal, cadmium. Cadmium occurs
naturally in phosphate ore, which
Texasgulf mines from land along
the river. Since cadmium also
occurs in phosphate-based fertil-
izers, agricultural runoff may also
release small amounts of the metal
into the system.
Other "hotspots" were linked
with large mannas on the river
copper-based paint is used on boat
hulls to discourage barnacle
growth � and to phosphate-based
fertilizer runt iff trom farms. A fifth
hotspot, showing high levels of
manv toxic metals, was thought to
be linked with an old pesticide
dump.
Heavy metals are ot critical
interest for several reasons. Natu-
rally present in our environment,
mam of these elements are essen-
tial to health in minor concentra-
tions but are often highly toxic
when present in excess. For ex-
ample, the body requires trace
amountsot zinc.copper, and chro-
mium. At slightly higher concen-
trations, however, these same ele-
ments can be deadly.
1 leavv metals are also unques-
tionably the most persistent of
pollutants on Earth, savs Dr. lames
B. Robertson, a certified toxkrolo-
gist of the HCU Department of
Environmental Health. "Unlike
better known environmental pol-
lutants such as PPT, TCBs, di-
oxin, mirex, and plastics, heavy
metals have no possibility of
breaking down. They are never
biodegradable says Robertson.
"Indeed, some estuarine organ-
isms can metabolize heavy met-
als, such as mercury, into more
toxic forms. This is what happened
in Minimata Bav, Japan, when UVi
people became deformed and
deranged from eating mercury-
tainted seafood
Given their inexorable persis-
tence, it comes as no surprise that
heavy metals plagued humankind
in previous eras. Some historians
believe the fall of the Roman
empire was due, in part, to the
ruling class's predilection tor
drinking wine from lead goblets.
Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter was

Eietra Gagnon was elected N.C.
chapter vice president.
During the review of chapter
activities, it was noted that ECU
had been very busy. The chapter
donated to Hugo victims in Char-
lotte and Charleston, gave to AIDS
educational research, conducted
two bake sales n order to raise1
funds and attended the phones in
the Homework Hotline program
of Pitt County
Also, members volunteered to
further the goals of ECU'S alumni
teletund, with proceeds going
towards academic scholarships.
Tor the outstanding work done
with the telefund in the previous
year, the 1 ambda chapter received
an award from the Alumni Assv
nation.
lambda memborsalso helped
work at Hood drives, had a canned
i(XK drive for Greenville's Shelter
Home and donated tood to a local
day care center. Additionally,
members have given their time to
help out ECU Friends, an organi-
zation modeled after Big Brothers
and Big Sisters. In the forefront of
the fundraisers was a Giveaway
which earned the chapter about
$1,500.00
Finally, future plans tor the
honor society include a spring
induction of approximately 300
new members and attendance o
the national convention in Dallas,
Texas.

ylenedioxy amphetamine) or bet-
ter known as "Ecstasy" is a mem-
ber of a family of semi-synthetic
chemicals known as hallucino-
genic amphetamines.
Ecstasy was originally tested,
and legally shelved as an appetite
suppressant in 1914. It broke into
the streets in the late 1960's. In
1985 up to 30,000 doses of ecstasy
were sold on the street per month.
In Julv, 1985 after research studies
indicated that MDMA causes
neurological and brain damage,
the US Drug Enforcement Admini-
stration banned the legal use of the
drug.
Today, MDMA is listed as a
Schedule I controlled substance.
This means that, like heroin, it is
not recognized as having any le-
gitimate uses and is illegal under
all circumstances.
On the street, MDMA is sold
in a powder or capsule form and
can be inhaled, injected or swal-
lowed. Effects of the drug begin
within 30 minutes and may last 4-
6 hours.
Many early reports of thedrug
were enthusiastic and claimed
euphoric like "ecstatic" feelings
in its users. More recent informa-
tion has concentrated on the many
negative effects of this drug. In
addition,drugsother than MDMA
can develop quickly and an over-
dose can occur)

are being increasingly sold as ec-

asanimal tranquilizersmixed with

that any substance labeled "ec-
stasy" will sell.
Some of the effects of MDM A
include:

brain.
According to one study the
drug may attack areas in the brain
that manufacture the ncurotrans-
mitter serontonin. Lingering ef-
fects on brain cells are still uncer-
tain.
These are some of the reasons
that MDMA is considered to be
among the "hardest" of the so-
called "soft" drugs. MDMA pro-
duces severe physical and psy-
chological burnout, even at mod-
erate doses. MDMA obviously is
quite a dangerous drug with seri-
ous known and unknown side
effects.

Studies indicate drinking
water is contaminated
By NATHANIEL MEAD
Staff Writer
Earlier this year, ECU marine
geologist Stan Riggs and cowork-
ers studying the Pamlico River
Estuary reported five "hotspots
well-defined zones where concen-
trations of toxic heavy metals run
up to 25 times higher than the rest
of the e&tuarv. "Experts" from the
EnvironmatfPrdiBWollAnc mertfsrcan tte deadly.
Heavy metals are of critical
interest for several reasons. Natu-
rally present in our environment,
manv of these elements are essen-
tial to health in minor concentra-
tions but are often highly toxic
when present in excess. For ex-
ample, the body requires trace
amountsofzinc,coppcr,and chro-
mium. At slightly higher concen-
trations, however, these same ele-
Special congratulations go to
Sherry Campbell for receiving the
four-year school scholarship and
to Suzanne Slack for earning the
Distinguished Service Award this
year.
The scrapbook submitted by
ECU took first place for the N.C.
four-year division. TimThomburg
won a sweeping victory in the
womanless beauty contest under
the guise of "Sofonda Peters
Dietra Gagnon was elected N.C.
chapter vice president.
During the review of chapter
activities, it was noted that ECU
had been very busy. The chapter
donated to Hugo victims in Char-
lotte and Charleston, gave to AIDS
educational research, conducted
two bake sales in order to raise
funds and attended the phones in
the Homework Hotline program
of Pitt County.
Also, members volunteered to
further the goals of ECU's alumni
telefund, with proceeds going
towards academic scholarships.
For the outstanding work done
with the telefund in the previous
year, the Lambda chapter received
an award from the Alumni Asso-
ciation.
Lambda members also helped
work at blood drives, had a canned
food drive for Greenville's Shelter
Home and donated food to a local
day care center. Additionally,
members have given their time to
help out ECU Friends, an organi-
zation modeled after Big Brothers
and Big Sisters. In the forefront of
the fundraisers was a Giveaway
which earned the chapter about
$1300.00
Finally, future plans for the
honor society include a spring
induction of approximately 300
new members and attendance of
the national convention in Dallas,
Texas.

were sent out to assess the situ
ation, but concluded there was no
hazard. A month later, however,
the EPA was forced to retract their
statement and even conceded that
some nearby towns' drinking
water supplies were in danger of
contamination.
One of these "hotspots lo-
cated off Texasgulf Co a larger
fertilizer plant, showed extremely
high concentrations of the heavy
metal, cadmium. Cadmiumoccurs
naturally in phosphate ore, which
Texasgulf mines from land along
the river. Since cadmium also
occurs in phosphate-based fertil-
izers, agricultural runoff may also
release small amounts of the metal
into the system.
Other "hotspots" were linked
with large marinas on the river �
copper-based paint is used on boat
hulls to discourage barnacle
growth � and to phosphate-based
fertilizer runoff from farms. A fifth
hotspot, showing high levels of
many toxic metals, was thought to
be linked with an old pesticide
dump.
Heavy metalsarealsounques-
tionably the most persistent of
pollutantson Earth, says Dr. James
B. Robertson, a certified toxicolo-
gist of the ECU Department of
Environmental Health. "Unlike
better known environmental pol-
lutants such as DDT, PCBs, di-
oxin, mirex, and plastics, heavy
metals have no possibility of
breaking down. They are never
biodegradable says Robertson.
"Indeed, some estuarine organ-
isms can metabolize heavy met-
als, such as mercury, into more
toxic forms. This is what happened
in Minimata Bay, Japan, when 106
people became deformed and
deranged from eating mercury-
tainted seafood
Given their inexorable persis-
tence, it comes as no surprise that
heavy metals plagued humankind
in previous eras. Some historians
believe the fall of the Roman
empire was due, in part, to the
ruling class's predilection for
drinking wine from lead goblets.

OPINION

We're on our own
Picture this:
You're 35 years old, on your way to
work and you get arrested. You are a victim
of blatant discrimination, so you approach
the company you're representing to ask for
legal assistance. You're denied. Not onlv
are you denved that counsel, but you're told
that you really weren't a representative of
the company that particular dav and subse-
quently will receive no support.
Hoes this seem far-fetched? It is. You
would have to be in your earlv twenties and
a college student for the storv-linc to fall
into place.
Thomas Walters, the general manager
of The Buccaneer and a free-lance photo
journalist, is just one of the many persons
arrested at Tar River Apartments on Hal-
loween. He and manv others were arrested
that night for failing to disperse from a
partv they never attended. Cuffs wore
slapped on Walters' wrists and his rights
were denied, as captured bv local newsta-
tions.
The Buccaneer, The East Carolinian,
and The Daily Reflector all partook of the
pictures Walters later took at the police
station downtown. By then his camera was
returned to him. The Media Board came out
in support of him but the administration,
par for the course, washed their hands of
the matter
Walters is a typical student who was
doing his job. Other journalists and camera-
men were not arrested. If thev had looked
like "just another college student" then
perhaps they would have been.
What will bo the next discrimination for
our age group? The Greenville police were
college student hungry on Halloween.
Thev made it clear that we're looked at as
college students first � a group they've
stereotyped with a negative image � and
rights such as the first Amendment, arc of
no concern when dealing with us.
Students must continue to fight the
attitude the city displayed of "putting those
college students down Whether you were
delivering a piza or being the designated
driver, you would have been arrested if you
were so much as across the street from Tar
River Apartments on Halloween.
To drill or not to drill is the question
By Nathaniel Mead
Uitonil Columnist
When was the last time vou
took a good long walk on the
beach For me, it was just recently,
over Thanksgiving break. Chi Sat-
urday- the water looked especially
fresh. At sunset 1 spotted an un-
dulating line of low-flving peli-
cans nearly skimmed the shim-
mering white crescent of a perfect
wave. The pristine Carolina coast
has so much magic, even during
the colder seasons.
That magic could be lost,
however, if we allow Mobil todrill
for natural gas and oil 45 miles
offshore. Sadly, it seems the oil
spill that blackened the Alaskan
coast aroused onlv passing na-
tional concern over offshore oil
operations. Here in North Caro-
lina, public scrutiny of Mobil Oil
Corps plan to search for natural
gas off the Outer Banks has been
weak indeed. The last public hear-
ing I attended, I counted onlv four
college age people.
Mobil and federal officials
have continually described the
drilling as "low-risk They say
such exploratory drilling seldom
causes oil spills. They say the tinv
compu ter moni tors along the forty
five mile pipeline will detect all
leaks if they occur. And even if a
spill does occur, the experts say it
can lie contained by modern tech-
nology. That's the same line they
fed the Alaskans before the Exxon
Valdez permanently tainted the
magnificent Alaskan coastline.
The slew of oily accidents
occurring this year �five spills in
themonthof Junealone!� clearly
shows the need for more exten-
sive environmental studies before
any drilling isdone near the Outer
Banks. One of the difficult ques-
tions, as yet unanswered, is how
we are to assess risk in an area that
regularly experiences some of the
most turbulent offshore weather
in the world.
Perhaps a more crucial ques-
tion is, what will happen if Mobil
finds oil? Of course, they will
push to drill, and they will pro-
vide plenty of glossy incentives
for that to occur. For example,
coastal residents will receive tax
breaks and job opportunities.
Unfortunately, the super-rich
oil industry has tremendous
power in Congress. George Bush,
himself once a Texas oilman, is a
leading scion of the Rockefeller oil
monopoly. Rest assured: If oil is
discovered, then federal approval
is a given. It's not for nothing that
Bush waited two long weeks be-
fore even commenting on the
Alaskan oil disaster.
Moreover, there is no future
in fossil fuels. The once enormous
reserves of this nonrenewable
resource are rapidly dwindling.
and the pollution thev cause is no
longer acceptable. Despite this
reality, the ReaganBush team
slashed funding for conservation
bv 70,research and development
of renewable energy sources bv
83randautoefficiency standards
rolled back from 27.5 to 26 miles
per gallon. I et's not give them anv
more incentive for such foolhardv
policies Given our present air
pollution situation, promotion of
solar energy and other renewable
energy technologies is our global
mandate
TheOuterBanksisabad place
to drill for more than merely aes-
thetic reasons. It also encloses the
second largest estuarv after Che-
sapeake Bay and the most pro-
ductive estuarv for its size. Of
course, in the event of a large spill,
most of the seabirds and marine
mammals which now grace our
coasts and estuaries will die and
will never be adequately replaced.
How high a price are we willing to
pay? Are we willing to lose our
fishing and tourist industries if an
accident occurs?
Recently I received a mam-
moth Environmental Report (ER)
�1,500 pages � from the Depart-
ment of the Interior's Minerals
Management Service (MMS),
which monitors offshore oil de-
velopment, on proposed drilling
off the Outer Banks. "This Envi-
ronmental Report is the most
comprehensive analysis ever con-
ducted on a proposed exploration
well in the history of the OCS
program says MMS Deputy
Director Ed Cassidy. "Consider-
able credit is due to MMS's
environmental and technical ex-
perts who have worked practi-
cally around-the-clock to make
this draft ER available on sched-
ule
The report was visually im-
pressive, but who would read such
a voluminous and highly techni-
cal document? Of course, the re-
port could not begin to answer the
most crucial question of whether
or not a spill will enrcur with such
operation. Risk is a most dubious
concept when it comes to environ-
mental catastrophes on the scale
of the oil-slimed beaches of Prince
William Sound and the Gulf of
Alaska. Just take a look on the
mapand imagine the sameamount
of coastline affected on our Outer
Banks. Goodbye beaches, goodbye
estuary, goodbye East Carolina.
Speaking of Alaska, it's inter-
esting to note parallels between
Alaska and North Carolina. Nine
of every ten Alaskans supported
the Alaska stateofficials' effortsin
Congress to open the coastal plain
of the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge to oil and gas exploration.
Ostensibly, the people were poor
and wanted an economic boost.
(All residents now qualify for an
annual oil dividend.) The oil com-
panies' main selling point wasalso
quite enticing and vaguely famil-
iar "Trust us � we've got the
ability and the record to protect
the environment and give you
more jobs Sadly, many North
Carolinians are buying the same
line.
Finally, any further oil devel-
opment will promote the green-
house effect, which threatens to
alter global climate patterns in
potentially catastrophic ways.
Indeed, if ice caps melt and ocean
levels rise as predicted to occur
with global warming, we will not
have any Outer Banks at all! And
as most kidscan tell you, the major
cause of the greenhouse effect is
the burning of oil and other fossil
fuels. Let's begin weaning our-
selves instead of reinforcing our
selfish gluttony.
MMS has scheduled four
public hearings to gather com-
ments on the draft ER. The closest
one to Greenville will be at the
Beaufort Community College in
Washington (about 22 miles bi-
cycle ride) on December 6. Each
hearing will have two sessions,
the first beginning at 3 p.m to 6
p.m. and the second from 7 p.m. to
10 p.m. Oral presentations may be
supplemented by written com-
ments, though such presentations
must be limited to 10 minutes.
Anyone who values the white
sands and awesome surf of North
Carolina beaches should attend
the MMS hearing. Anyone who
cares about our own future, not to
mention our children's, should
attend. Anyone who thinks off-
shore oil drilling is a good thing,
don't bother coming � you are
already well represented by oil
officials on the MMS staff, in
Congress, and by the President
himself.
Incidentally, President Bush
says we need to drill offshore
because we need the oil. But we
need the coastal wildlife too, and
our beloved estuary�both parts
of the great ecological chain that
makes our planet habitable, and
both irreplaceable. Oil that re-
mains in the ground, however,
can be replaced (by solar, wind
power, etc.) if there's the human
will to do so�that is, if wo uV
people are willing.
The long-term, global view
sees the oil issue as fundamen-
tally an issue of survival. Mature
human beings are concerned not
only with today, but also with
tomorrow and the future of hu-
manity decades from now. It's
time to grow up and take stock of
our future. Even if you don't plant
to speak out, please make your
presence felt in Washington, N.C
on December 6.
Anyone with questions about
the MMS report can call Tom Perlic
of the Sierra Club at 946-9306, in
Washington.
What is there to be afraid of ?
To the editor.
Most people are afraid of
snakesand manvcouldn t be paid
to even touch one. Yet, most snakes
aren't poisonous, and theories that
are take fewer lives than do bees
and wasps and other stingers.
And, most people don't even
venture to the edge of a cliff
Scared1 lu A sensible
On the other hand, most
people are terrified bv AIDS. A
massive medical effort is being
made against it. But this always
deadly disease could be stopped
by just avoiding homosexual prac-
tices, promiscuous sex. and shar-
ing drug needles.
And, drugs? Whv use anv il-
legal drugs1 Thev destroy,
whether smoked, sniffed, or in-
jected. Onlv stupid people ruin
themselves.
But what about cigarettes?
They contribute to more fatal
cancer, heart and c irculatory, and
other disease's than anything else
common and totally unnecessary
use today.
And what about liquor? It
causes illness, deprives families,
destroys homes, puts drunk driv-
ers on the roads, and kills inno-
cent people.
Most people would rather tal k
about snakes and cliffs and AIDs
� even, thing is just plain "med-
dling" (especially when those
involved are college students).

Free choice or
birth control?
To the editor:
In their attempt to seize the
moral high ground in the abortion
debate, pro-abortionists insists on
theprochoice" label. They claim
they are protecting the principles
of individual liberty � "We must
be able to make free choices in our
lives with minimal government
intrusion" � rather than advocat-
ing abortion per so as a form of
birth control.
But pro-abortion groups are
hypocritical and inconsistent
when applying the principle of
choice to other policy areas.
For example, the National
Education Association's official
position on abortion is pro-
choice Yet this is the same or-
ganization which adamantly
opposes the idea oi giving low-
income parents a choice as to
where they send their children to
school � perhaps by supplying
them with education vouchers.
Those who claim that we
should have the "freedom to
choose" to take a way the constitu-
tionally-protected right to life of
an innocent unborn child are NOT
prochoice neither where abor-
tion is concerned, nor in a host of
other areas.
To be philosophically consis-
tent, those who call themselves
prochoice" should agree that:
An American should have
the right to own a gun.
An individual should have
the right to join a union, but should
never be required to join a union
to work.
A worker and an employer
should be permitted to freely en-
ter into a contract for work at any
level of pay, without the shackles
of a government minimum wage.
An employer should be per-
mitted to hire anv worker regard-
less of their race or sex. Quotas,
affirmativeaction and comparable
worth are NOT pro-choice.
'Taxpayers should not be
forced to fund an activity that
they might find morally offensive,
such as abortion

The time isn't
yet upon us
To the editor:
An interesting right-wing
group has sett led in Montana next
to Yellowstone Park. Their leader,
a woman named "Prophet (or
"Profit") has raked in enough
dough so that thev are now en-
sconced on 33 thousand acres of
prime land on which thev are fran-
tically build inghumongous bomb
shelters in preparation for the
impeding economic collapse and
nuclear doomsday predicted by
Prophet to occur in 1990 "accord-
ing to the Book of Revelation
My opinion is thev are "jump-
ing the gun" just a little, for the
time is not quite vet. The Nuke
War is ahead vet bv eight to twelve
years, so relax Credit debt will
much sooner bring the economic
collapse of capitalism like the
house of cards that it is. We are
looking down the pike only two,
maybe three years to the CWD
(Coming World Expression). Bv
1992 it's all going precipitously
down the tubes.
Like the quintessential bov
scout with his waterproof con-
tainer of matches and compass,
we need to BE PREPARED. Those
who are well prepared have a
chance to survive. In that respect,
the Prophet and her followers are
on the right track. You can bet the
super rich bankers will survive
come economic collapseor nuclear
war. Our government is prepar-
ing to survive although it cares
very little how many civilians die
in either the CWD or the Thirty
Minute War.
Man dreams of having a time
machine to go "back to the future"
and return. Most of those who
survive the CWD to witness the
Thirty Minute War on H-Day will
die of radiation sickness like rats
in a sewer.
Recently, an anonymous in-
dividual told me: "You have the
most valuable asset of all, TIME
No boss, no company, no time
clock owns your time. Millions of
people have money and wish they
had time. You cannot truthfully
say. Time is Money There is no
comparison. Of those two, TIME
is most unequivocally valuable
As the hands on our watches
spin ever faster, we search for a
bridge between TIME, SPACE and
MIND. Our days remaining ap-
pear numbered. Rule number one:
Buy nothing on credit. Secondly,
pay out or phase out all existing
credit. If you are in a bind, default
and face the consequences. If the
creditor class were to drown in its
own tears, our country, our pride
in ourselves is not lost. The world
will be a better place for it, once all
is said and done!
While our minds with dope
we deaden,
Shall we stand at Armaged

Area educators study business skills
THE EAST CAROLINIAN NOVEMBER 30,1989 5
Twenty Pitt County teachers
have become students during the
past six weeks in classes taught by
area industrialists.
In a unique partnership be
tween business and education, the
teachers were picked to partici-
pate in the first Pitt County Teacher
Executive Institute. For the past
six weeks these teachers have
spent one day a week in a different
industrial or business plant learn-
ing from business executives the
leadership skills taught to their
Heavy Metal
caricatured after the 19th century
hat-makers who used mercury in
the production of hat felt. In
modern times, the old-people's
disease, Alzheimer's disease, has
been associated with high levels
of aluminum in the brain.
With industry unconsciona-
bly spewing effluents of all kinds
into the environment, our mod-
em food and water supply have
become increasingly contami-
nated with heavy metals. Herbi-
cides and fungicides, designed to
kill, tend to contain substantial
amounts of arsenic and mercury
and trace amounts of these sub
stances will gradually accumulate
in our fatty body tissues.
As documented in Michael
Weiner's Maximum Immunity
(Houghton-Mifflin Co Boston.
186), slightly elevated exposures
to cadmium, mercury, and lead
will supress manv key aspects of
immune function and increase
one's susceptibility to infection.
Even very low, theoretically safe
levels of these metals may incur
cumulative damage on the nen
ous system, particular lv in grow
ing children. Various free radicals
(highly unstable and reactive
molecules which cause tissue
degeneration) are formed in the
presence of common heavy met-
als.
Some of the earliest reports ot
cadmium toxicity involved factory-
workers exposed to cadmium
oxide who then developed em-
physema and, in some cases, fatal
pneumonia. Besides phosphate-
based fertilizers, which readily
pass cadmium from soil to plants
to animal, the metal can co me fro in
cigarette smoke, elcctroplatine
industry emissions, cadmium-
plated trays and wise). ind sM!
water that remains in contact with
galvanized or black polyethylene
pipes.
In an August 15, 1987 article
"High-Cadmium Diet: Recipe tor
Stress? Science News reported on
studies showing that cadmium
increased anxiety and decreased
stress-coping ability in rats. Cad-
mium also threatens our vitality
by lowering unavailability of zinc,
which isessential to strong immu -
nitv.
Increasing concentrations of
mercury are being detected in
many freshwater fish and shell
fish. Perhaps more within the
realm of control, mercury exists in
the silver amalgams used widely
by dentists. Recent research indi
cates that mercury may leach from
silver fillings into the bloodstream
to cause immune suppression and
other toxic effects. As reported in
the May 1984 journal of Prosthetic
Dentistry,a dentist removed amal-
gam fillings from three patients
and observed a proportionate
increasein key immunecellscalled
T cells. When the amalgam was
restored, the T cell levels dropped
again, suggesting that amalgam
fillings seriously depress this vita)
cell population. Alloys of nickel.
which is also used in dental work,
may have a similar effect on
immune function.
Two other heavy metals of
major concern are lead and alumi-
num. Aluminum, the most abun-
dant mineral in the soil, is increas-
ingly released into the food chain
by acid rain. It also presents a
problem for those using alumi-
num cookware � particularly
thoseusingaluminumcoffeepots
Aluminum has been linked with
neurological disorders, reduced
bone density, and poor absorp-
tion of minerals selenium and
phosphorus.
Lead, another common bypro-
duct of arid rain, has recently been
linked with a high incidence of
learning disabilities in urban chil-
dren. City people tend to have a
lead level five-hundred times
greater than our ancestors had,
probably due to automobile ex-
haust and other air pollution, lead-
containing paints, and the pres-
ence of lead in the typical Ameri-
can diet and public water supply.
According to George James in
Nutrition and Killer Diseases.
employees.
Also included in the course
was a tour of the six plants in
order that teachers may share with
their students and fellow teachers
information about available re-
sources in Pitt County. The six

ated with brain damage, neuritis
and kidney c nicer.
Heavy Metal Solutions
Of the many dimensions to
the heavy metal problem, some
are obviousK less amenable to
change than others Operators of
pulp mills and municipal treat-
ment plan's discharge millions of
gallons of metal contaminated
water per day. In order to dis-
harge v aste water at legal levels,
these plants simply dilute the
discharge, adding more water so
the concentration ot metals re-
mains low. But this still allows
them to release large volumes of
hea v metals into the rivers.lere
government should require
nu re stringent monitoring meas-
ures or work to establish safei
discharge strategies.
Obviously
heavy metal pollution must be
dealt with at its source. Rather
than usecopper-based paint, boat-
owners � ould allow the bamac les
to grow, scraping them off pen-
odically by hand. Rather than use
the problem of
dinner honoring the participants
and their spouses as a concluding
event.
The Teacher Executive Insti-
tute was planned by the Pitt
County Educational Foundation.
During the early spring, the N.C.
Center for the Advancement of
Teaching will host a weekend re-
treat at Quail Roost near Chapel
Hill for the participants to reflect
upon what they have learned. The
Institute has attracted attention
from across the state as a first of its
kind for teachers.
Continued from page 3
chemicals, farmers could switch
to organic methods. The more
formidable hurdle will be to reori-
ent big businesses such as Tex-
asgulf and Weyerhauser, both of
whom provide thousands of jobs
and whose prime concern is short-
term profit. Here the major ob-
stacle is the mighty dollar. As
heavy metals poison the human
body, so does greed poison hu-
man reason. Government will
have to intervene, though admit-
tedly this may mean waiting an-
other four years.
The second solution to the
heavy-metal problem is to mini-
mize human exposure. This can
take various forms. If you eat fish,
for example, the best choice is
white-meat, saltwater fish, since
that variety will contain little if
any mercury.
Other solutions, such as acti-
vated carbon waterfilters, are
based on commonsense�as long
as you're still healthy enough to
clearly consider them and take
firm action. But don't wait to
become a Mad Hatter. Prevention
is always best!

Plenty!
The name's McGruff, the Crime Dog, and it's my job to
teach folks of all ages how to prevent crime. You'll be

You see, crime prevention is not a job reserved only
for the security department or the police. It's your job,

to total power and bring non
Communist into the government

In a meeting w tion
leaders Tuesday tl it I ed 11
straight days of huge protests
demanding democracy, Commu-
nist authorities promised to part
with some power and end their
constitutionally mandated politi-
cal supremacy.
"The future of the party re-
quires giving up the monopoly of
power Urbanek told 3,500Com-
munist Party activists in Prague
on Tuesday night, according to
the state news agency CPK.
The partv chief, named Fri-
day in a shakeup of the ruling
Politburo, also said that many
other opposition demands are
acceptable to the Communists,
though he was not specific. Differ-
ences exist, he added, but "we shall
have to get used to making poli-
tics not only with those who agree
with you
Parliament planned to meet
Wednesday to consider the con-
stitutional change and other op-
position demands. Opposition
leaders continued to push for free
elections, free speech and other
rights including the freedom to
form independent labor unions.
Communist Premier Ladislav
Adamec promised the opposition
during Tuesday's talks that he
would name bv Sunday a new
coalitiongovernment that includes
non-Communists, a concession to
demands for an end to one-party
rule.
The agreement was reached
during a meeting with Adamec
and a delegation from th� opposi-
tion coalition Civic Forum The
dissident delegation was led by
playwright Vaclav Havel,
Czechoslovakia's most prominent
opposition activist.
The streets were quiet on
Tuesday, as Civi Forum had
requested to show that it did not
want to disrupt the e onomy v n
Monday, millions of people joined
a two-hour general strike tailed
bv the opposition to demand an
end to 40 years of authoritarian
rule. Civic Forum said strike
committees would remain in plai e
in case the Communists do not
heed the popular will
Adamec's pledge to ask Presi-
dent Gustav Husak to approve a
new coalition was announced by
Marian Calfa, minister without
portfolio, after Tuesday's two-
hour talks. Hours after Calfa
spoke, Urbanek lent his support
to the constitutional changes but
rejec ted other demands outright.
He said it was "totally unacc-
eptable' to disband the People's
Militia, the party's paramilitary
force and to remove the partv from
workplaces. Hut Urbanekalsocriti-
i ized his predecessor, Milos Jakes,
saying his hard line policies had
made it easy for the opposition to
gain momentum. Jakes on Tues-
day resigned his last top post as
chairman of the National Defense
Council, which gave himessenhal
command of the armed forces.
Many of those ousted in the
government shakeup that began
Fndav were associated with the
decision to crush the reforms ol
liberals in the Communist gov-
ernment in ls6H. Soviet-led tanks
moved in and a new orthodox
government that included lakes
and 1 lusak was installed.
Alois lndra, who like Jakes
1 lusak and two other hard-liners
associated with the crackdown lost
his Politburo seat Fndav also re-
signed Tuesday as the president

Main Europeans worry that
with its economic and political
ight, a reunited Germany of 80
million people would dominate
the continent. Germany was di-
vided into twostatesafterthcNazi

The prospect of reunification
set med distant less than a month
ago, but sweeping changes in East
i Germany have revived the idea.
With Fast Germans, disillusioned
with Communist rule, fleeing in

the hundreds of thousands, the
partv leadershipousted hard-liner
Frich Honecker last month and
launched a radical program of
reforms with the promise of free
elections.
The opening of the country's
borders on Nov. 4 gave Hast Ger-
mans unrestricted freedom to
travel to West Germany for the
first time since the Berlin Wall was
built in 1961. Millions of East
Germans have since visited West
Germany. At demonstrations in
recent weeks, some have called
for reunification � an idea consis-
tently rejected by the country's
leaders. Krenz emphasized the
need for two "sovereign, inde-
pendent German states
"A unitv of Germany isn't on

In a statement carried by the

said relations between the two

"mutual respect ot sovereignty

Meyer said Kohl's proposals for
cooperation with East Germany
contained "interesting starting

A group of leading East Ger-

Wake Forest University honor
court has found a student who
smuggled out television tapes oi
meshootingatBeijing'sTianamen
Square guilty oi lying in order to
go near the square
Timothy W. Bell, a business
major, was found guilb oi lying
bvtheschool'sl lonorCounx after
a hearing Tuesday night.
Stephen Ewing and ohn H.
Litcher, two professors w ho led a
group of 2S students to C hina last
spring, say Bell lied in telling them
that he would not go to the square
when he left the group's hotel on
the outskirts of Beijing. Bell, who
savs he will appeal the verdict,
was put on probation until the
end of the current term and was
ordered to write letters of apology
to each oi the students and profes-
sors on the trip.
"The basic charge is that we
gave instructions to members oi
the group that they should not be
going anywhere neartht square
Ewing said. "It turned out later
that this one student did. This
student also told us that where he
was going would not bv near the
square. The charge is that he told
us one thing, then did something
else
Bell 22, watched the struggle
the night of une 3 from a foreign
correspondent's hotel room about
three blocks trom the square. Be-
fore the students left Beijing, an
NBCNewscrevs gave Bell tapes to
take to Hong Kong. Those tapes
wen seen on a une 4 special re-
port on the Beiimg massacre. NBC
officials later told him that 20
million to 30 million people saw
that broadcast. Bell said.
When the rest ot the group
flew back to the United States on
une S. Bell staved in Hong Kong
and worked with 'BC .)�- a pro-
duction assistant for most of the
summer. David Stradlev, one of
two students who defended Bell
at the hearing, said Bell received a
letter in late lulv asking him to
report to the university immedi-
ately after he returned to the
United States. The letter said noth-
ing about an Honor Council
charge, he said.
Stradlev said Bell contends
that he did not lie.
"I think what we have here is
a disagreement about what c cacti v
was said Stradlev said Monday
"He (Bell) did not go to the square
on the night of unt 3. He was
near it, within a halt-mile or so.
With ail the shoo ting that occurred
that night, it would not have been
smart to go to the square
Bell declined to comment on
the case1 prior to the hearing, sav-
ing that faculty members have
advised him not to discuss it. Ml
was supposed to graduate in
August, but because he did not
find out about the charge until
Aug. 14, he could not meet the
Aug. 15 deadline tor having an
HonorCouncilheanngand inves-
tigation, Stradlev said
Stradley said that the hearing
which was open to the public at
Bell's request, was the first open
hearing in at least 20 years.
"Tim thought the matter
would be best aired in a public
forum Stradlev said.
Economic opportunities increase through decade
By JIM HI ND1 RSON
Th Asimh .teii Ptcm
Putsimplv.the 1980schanged
the financial lives of Americans
Many financial products ommon-
place as the decade ends either
didn't exist or were mere seed
lings 10 years ago.
Consider
� CDsand savings. A decade
ago, you could n't walk intoa bank,
plunk down $1,000 and buj a
certificate of deposit paying eight
percent or better Savers were
stuck with passbook savings ac-
counts, which weren't allowed to
pay more than 5 1 -2 percent
In December 1982, bank de
regulation wasslammed into high
gear. Banks could pay a floating
rate on a new type ot m. count
the money market account. Ten
months later, they became free to
set rates on CDs and sell them in
denominations small enough to
accommodate more individuals
Today, savers have Slh tril-
lion in money market accounts
andCDsoflessthan$lM,lX)0.and
only $405 billion in the old-fash-
ioned passbook and statement
savings accounts.
Money funds. Money funds
were invented in the 1970s, but we
learned to use them in the 1980s.
At year's end 1979, there were only
2.3 million money fund accounts
with total assets of $45.2 billion.
Today, there are 20 million ac-
counts with total assets of $434
billion.
- IRAs. It wasn't until 1982
that Congress made IRAs avail-
able to all wage earners. The 1986
tax law restricted who can deduct
IRA contributions, but most wage
earners still qualify, and all IRA
holders benefit from tax-deferred
compounding. Total assets in
IRAs: $414 billion.
�401(k)s. A1978 law allowed
401(k) retirement savings plans,
but by 1982, only two percent of
major companies offered them.
The plans let employees invest
pretax dollars, have a sa) as to
where their monev is invested and
take the money with them when
they leave an employer. Today
about 95 percent of major employ-
ers offer 401 (k)s, covering about
30 million workers, or about 25
percent ot the work force. Total
assets in 401(k)s: $456 billion.
� Home-equity credit lines.
The 1986 tax law began phasing
out deductions tor consumer loan
interest but not mortgage interest,
lapping the equity in your home
has become a common way to
borrow. About five million home-
owners have home equity credit
lines and owe more than $80 bil-
lion on them.
ARMs. High mortgage
rates put homeownership out of
reach tor millions of would-be

Court considers consent issue
By STEVE MARSHALL
and TONY MAURO
Gannett News Scnrlc
Should minors seeking abor-
tions be required to notify their
parents?
That is the issue the Supreme
Court considers in cases from
Minnesota and Ohio.
Pro-life advocates favor pa-
rental involvement. They want
more states to adopt laws that
would require consent or at least
notification before a minor could
have an abortion.
Pro-choice advocates dis-
agree. They see parental involve-
ment as another obstacle to re-
strict abortion procedures.
Eleven states now require
parental notification; another 20
require parental consent. Most
laws either are not enforced or
have been ignored by courts. Lis-
tening to the arguments will be
Heather Pearson, 18.
"Maybe people will see me
and think, 'Oh God, it does hap-
pen to normal people says Pear-
son, taking two days off trom

Four years ago, when she was
about to enter ninth grade in sub-
urban Minneapolis, Pearson
learned she waspregnant. Sheand
her boyfriend both were 14. She
confided to her mother and they
discussed options, includingabor-
tion.
Having decided on an abor-
tion, Pearson's mother called a
clinic and learned the law required
both biological parents of a minor
be notified. One problem:
Heather's father had not played a
part in her life in 11 years.
That was in 1985, and little
did they know they were on the
cutting edge of the new abortion
battle � laws requiring notifica-
tion or consent of parents.
Heather's parents divorced when
she was 5. Still, the law was firm
� either notifv a man who had
not been in her life in 11 vears or
trot off to court, tor a judge's per-
mission.
"So off to court I went said

judge's permission to have the

Pentagon bean counters, to
claim their $180 billion in savings,
shaved pretend dollars off their
old five-year budget projection,
which called for the defense
budget to rise from $300 billion to
$349 billion by 1994. But there was
"no way in hell" the Pentagon was
ever going to win $349 billion in
1994, said Korb.
There is another thing to
remember about all those propos-
als being floated to save billions,
such asclosing 15 Air Force Bases,
mothballing two aircraft carriers
and eliminating three Army divi-
sions: These are trial balloons.
Each service is floating un-
popular proposals in the hope of
distracting Congress from what
really matters to the services �
new weapons coming on line.
Suggesting the closure of 15 bases,
just after the bitter fight to close a
handful of bases, might make
Congress more likelv to approve
the programs the Air Force really
wants, such as modernizing mis-
sile forces with the Rail Garrison
MX, a new fighter and a faster
pace of purchasing its new air-t(-
air missile, the AMRAAM.
"The Air Force is saying, 'Hev,
we're willing to play this game
But the Air Force knows fully well
that's not likelv to happen said
defense budget analyst Tom Long-
streth from the Federation of
American Scientists, referring to
the base closures.
It takes more than five years
to win back any savings from clos-
ing a base and, "I'm sure Cheney
is not that interested in savings in
the year 2010 said Korb
The Navy mav be offering up
some old aircraft carriers, but only
to protect its new aircraft carriers
and its new Seawolf attack sub-
marine. Mixed with all the Nutt-
ing and skirmishing, the services
are offering some meat for the
cleaver.
The Navy, for example, is
likely to offer some surface ships
for mothballing,especially the four
World War Hera battleships.
Refurbishing the battleships cost
$435 million apiece;operatingeach
battleship costs $35 million per
ship every year, and manning each
battleship requires l,r00 sailors

another conventionally armed B-

10 THE EAST CAROLINIAN' NOVEMBER 30. 1989
Researcher releases rape statistics
CPS � Nearly one in five
women are forced to have sex or
are victims of attempted rape
while going to college in New
York, Cornell University re-
searcher Andrea Parrot found.
She released her findings �
based on a survey of officials and
215 students at 15 New York col-
leges � at the end of October
during an Albany conference on
Infant deaths increase
sexual assault. Survey results
involving 30 colleges and 1,100
students will be available in De-
cember, she said.
Parrot also discovered the
assailants most likely are men who
live in same-sex dormsor fraterni-
ties, and have "macho" attitudes
that devalue women.
It's tougher to classify the
victims, she said. But the more
men a woman dates � and the
more these men drink � the more
likely she is to be attacked, her
study suggested.
Parrot's figures are consistent
with national figures. In a 1987
survey of 6,000 students on 32
campuses, one in six female stu-
dents reported being the victim of
rape or attempted rape in the
preceding year.
Most women knew the assail-
ant. In the same study, oneof every
15 men said he had committed
rape or had attempted rape in the
same period.
"By and large, universities are
giving us a much lower report
rate Parrot said. Ignoring that
rape isa problem is "a common re-
sponse" among administrators,
she added. "Every institution has
a problem
Study shows North Carolina lacks prenatal care
CHARLOTTE (AP) � North
Carolina's rate of infant deaths
has risen two years in a row, but
political leaders say there has been
little demand that something be
done about it.
'To be just blunt with vou, I
don't get anybody calling me and
asking me about the infant mor-
tality rate said Rep. Dave Dia-
mont, D-Surry, chairman of the
N.C. House Appropriations
Committee. "I get calls every week
from somebody complaining
about their unpaved road
In North Carolina last vear,
1,227 infants under age 1 died, or
12.6 percent of every 1,000 babies
born. It was the second consecu-
tive year the infant death rate rose.
It was the highest rate in North
Carolina since 1983, and worse
than in South Carolina (12.2 per-
cent) or Mississippi (12.3 percent),
states that for years trailed North
Carolina in most health and eco-
nomic indexes. But the dismal
indicator of health conditions
didn't spur aggressive legislative
action.
"I don't know of any state-
wide leader who's really felt
strongly enough about it to say,
'We're on the bottom on a lot of
other things, but I'll just be dang-
blasted if we're going to be on the

Th AuoclaMd Praw
CHICAGO (AP) � A 21-
month-old girl who received the
nation's first living-donor liver
transplant is recovering after a
complication, and her father hopes
to have her home for Christmas.
Alyssa Smith underwent a
second operation early Tuesday
to stop internal bleeding detected
12 hours after she received a piece
of her mother's liver.
"She's looking much better
said her father, John L. Smith.
The girl was in critical but
stable condition after the second
operation, said Dr. Christoph
Broelsch, who headed the surgi-
cal team. Doctors removed the left
lobe of 29-year-old Teresa Smith's
liver for the transplant. Mrs. Smith
was in fair condition Tuesday. She
was moved out of intensive care

tions subcommittee on human
resources.
The national 1988 infant mor-
tality rate was 9.9 per 1,000 live
births. North Carolina health
experts fear the state, fifth-worst
in 1987, will beat the bottom when
the 1988 rankings come out next
year.
Results in other states show
fewer babies die when monev is
spent to give pregnant women
earlv, regular and thorough health
care. During their terms, Missis-
sippi Gov. William Winter (1980-
84) and S.C. Cov. Dick Rilev( 1979-
87) put infant mortality at the top
of their agendas.
Those governors cajoled their
legislatures into appropriating
money. In 1984, South Carolina
committed $8 million for a three-
year plan. Mississippi increased
the staffs at public health clinics so
that no pregnant woman has to
wait more than two weeks for an
appointment. (In about 25 of the
100 N.C. counties, waiting time
averages from three to eight
weeks.)
They also went after private
grant monev: Mississippi got $1.2
million in 1987. South Carolina
has $2.4 million this vear, North
Carolina $40,000.
As head of a Southern Gover-
nors Association task force on
infant mortality, Riley persuaded
Congress to make major changes
in Medicaid, in effect setting up a
kind of national maternity-care
insurance for the working poor.
Now the federal government will
pay 75 percent of the cost of medi-
cal care for women whose family
income is up to $18,600 a year for
a family of three � 185 percent of
the poverty level � if the state
pays the rest.
Mississippi and South Caro-
lina pay the maximum. The 1989
S.C. legislature voted to spend $7.6
million for the state's share. That
will cover an estimated 42 percent
of the state's pregnancies.
North Carolina hasn't done
as much. Although Secretary of
Human Resources David Flaherty
asked for $19.2 million from the
1989 N.C. General Assembly to
pav the maximum Medicaid bene-
fits, Martin didn't include money
for it in his proposed budget. In-
stead, he pushed a highway pack-
age.
The Legislature, at the urging
of Sen. Russell Walker, D-Ran-
dolph, and Reps. Diamont and
Ann Duncan, R-Forsyth, appro-
priated $13.5 million, to raise the
Medicaid income ceiling to $15,081
for a family of three � 130 percent
of the poverty level � beginning
Jan. 1. But much of the
Legislature's energy went toward
approving the $9 billion, 13-year
road-improvement package.
"I think what you're seeing
said Walker, "is that the interest of
doing things for highways and
paving rural roads became
much more important, from the
top down, than protecting lives
Gov. Jim Martin said he made
infant mortality a top priority this
year, after learning in April the
North Carolina infant death rate
was continuing to nse. Although
his 1989-90 budget didn't propose
increasing Medicaid eligibility, he
said, "As soon as we learned we
had two years' increase, we agreed
to support 150 percent. "We did
the best we could last year. I'm not
saying that's as good as any other
state. It would be very easy to
sav, 'Well, the governor didn't

He cited several programs
begun during his administration,
including "Babv Love which he
called "perhaps the most uccess-

"Babv Love begun two years
ago, is supposed to 1 ide needy
pregnant women through the

after MSU's 10-7 football loss to
the University oi Michigan. The
crowd set fire to almost anything
itcould lift or push, including cars,
trashcansand mopeds. I rees were
torn up and balcony railings were
ripped from apartments.
At the very same time at Ply-

for taking "isolated" incidentsand
lumping them together to produce
"newsworthy items But he
doesn't discount the gravity of the
problem.

ECU student succeeds in advertising business
By MICHELLE WALKER
Staff Writer
Confidence. Persistence. Be-
lieving in yourself and what you
do. These are the qualities that
have made Mark Rosenberg, of
Rosenberg and Associates, a suc-
cessful entrepreneur.
Rosenberg, originally from
Miami, broke into the advertising
world in 19S4, then working out
of his apartment on Juniper Street.
At that time, he was attending
ECU and working on an advertis-
ing project for one of his market-
ing classes.
Until that class, and until the
Sheraton bought part of his proj-
ect, Rosenberg had no idea that
advertising would be his niche.
Even though he had no prior
experience in the field, he decided
advertising was what he wanted
to do.
Advertising is an extremely
competitive field and Rosenberg
was aware of that. He and a part-
ner started the business out of his
apartment. When asked how he
made connections and got his first
clients he replied, "We hit the
streets. My partner and 1 took our
portfolios and went around to all
the bars downtown and businesses
in Greenville, and basically sold
our services, showed them our
work and told them, This is what
we are going to do for you
Each new contract brought
new learning experiences. Being
young and inexperienced amidst
a world filled with experienced
professionals, is an intimidating
feeling. Rosenbergdid not let that
stop him. "I just wanted to do it,
and I did it. And there wasn't
anybody who could convince me
of anything different Some of
what he learned came from a visit
to a large advertising agency in
Philadelphia. He listened to eve-
rything they told him and went
from department to department,
writing down every word they
said.
Five and a half years later,
with the help of 12 staff members,
sitting at his own desk in a big new
office building, Rosenberg has
succeeded. Organization is only
part of the key. He said that he
feels cooperation and support
ized I'm on top of things, and I
know what has to be done, and 1
do it
About all the frustrations that
came along with trying to build a
name for himself and his new
company, Rosenberg said: "It was
frustrating at first, but I have my
frustrating times now. I have my
good days and my bad days If
something goes wrong you don't

Candace Gillis, Marketing
Director of The Plaza, said the mall
is 85 leased. Gillis is responsible
for retail promotion and market-
ing activities for The Plaza. Gillis
transferred to this mall from
Raleigh.
Sixty stores were open for the
Oct. 27 grand re-opening, and
others will open during 199(1. With
the $34 million expansions, there
will be enough room for lOOstores.
Gillis estimates The Plaza will
generate $70 million in retail sales
for 1990, $3.5 million of this will
come from sales tax revenue.
"We currently employ 700 to
750 people and expect to see that
figure rise to 1,000. A large part of
our work force is ECU students
Gillis said.
"The University has aided T

having 16,000 students practically ��
across the street, and they are an
incredible buying power she
said. Mall officials say the students
were their first focus point in plan-
ning the expansion.
Among the new faces at The
Plaza are jewelry stores, eateries,
novelty shops and clothing stores.
The Plaza has a whole new look
inside and out. Every thing is look-
ing new and bright marble floors,
fresh paint and decorative lights.
The sights and sounds of
Christmas will soon be ringing
through The Plaza. Santa will
make daily visits at The Plaza,
until Christmas Eve. Jingles, the
giant, talking bear, will be making
his home at The Plaza during the
Holidays. So get those lists ready!
Holiday spirit is on display at The Plaza.The recent renovations and the Christmas decorations contribute

Embassy offers exchange program
By JOSEPH CAMPBELL
Staff Wnlft
The Japanese Embassy is now-
accepting applications for the
japan Exchange and Teaching
Program. Now in its third vear,
the JET Program offers native
English speakers from various
countries the chance to observe
and assist in teaching English to
Japanese students while allowing
participants to absorb its culture.
Karen Eoushee, a recent ECU
graduate, currently lives in Kochi
City, where she works for the
Kochi Prefecture Board of Educa-
Conference to focus on
environmental concerns
By MICHELLE THOMPSON
Special totheEaaf Carolinian
Earlier this year, a small group
of ECU students attended the
National Conference for Overseas
Development in the Thrid World
at Harvard University. The con-
ference,called "Rethinking Devel-
opment focussed on the conflict
between sustainable economics
and unprincipled development,
thedominanteconomic trend since
the Industrial Revolution. Topics
ranged from reforestation in Bra-
zil to "empowerment initiatives"
for people here and abroad.
In the opening address, Pro-
fessor Mel King of MIT asked,
"How can we look to this country
to play a part in development?"
Initially he focussed on some
negative aspects of our culture�
on pollution, on the low status of
women and minorities,and on the
pervasive attitude that personal
values can only be reflected in
wealth often gained by exploiting
natural resources. As such prob-
lems persist, said King, we may
ask ourselves, "Are we in fact
developed?"
On a positive note, King also
emphasized that a major reorien-
tation of global development poli-
cies may best begin with the United
States. Free speech and a free
press give us access to powerful
information that can change lives.
We can also effect change through
lobbying, boycotting, demonstra-
tions, and letters to industries and
political figure.
The most shocking presenta-
tions at this conference focussed
on the Amazon. Satellite photos
of the Amazon River basin show-
that an area the size of a football
field is deforested every five sec-
onds and an area the size of Maine
isdeforested each year. Yet eighty-
one percent of the land is owned
by an elite few. The odd mix of
economic conditions�of abject
poverty and excessive wealth
(funelled into development)�
tend to encourage unsound envi-
ronmental practices. Large for-
eign corporations often act out of
narrowly focussed economic inter-
ests.
The Brazilian Amazon is ecol-
ogically unique. It contains a vast
diversity of plant and animal life
and the largest stretch of rainforest,
which harbors some 3 million
plant species�nearly 34 of all
plant species on Earth! The Ama-
zon River Basin actually spans
several countries and is roughly
the size of Australia and is the
second longest river in the world.
The Amazon is crucial to regu-
lating carbon dioxide in the at-
mosphere and thus is essential to
the stability of the global climate
system. The "slash & burn"
method of deforestation used in
the Amazon is a major cause of the
"greenhouseeffect the phenome-
non by which the sun's energy is
trapped in Earth's atmosphere
Within our lifetimes, this problem
could threaten the survival of
many species�including our
own.
Brazil saw the beginning of
spirallingdevelopment in theearly
1960's. Throughout the '70s and
into the '80s, the World Bank of-
fered vigorous support for mas-

Foushee said, "Kochi and
North Carolina are on the same
latitude, so the weather is similar.
The humidity of August made me
feel right at home She said that
the language and customs are
naturally different, but she has
been able to adjust because of
polite and helpful Japanese people.
Begun in 1987, the program
currently has nearly 2CHX) partici-
pants from nine countries. This
year, coordinators of the Program
expect to accept approximately 780
of these applicants from the United
States.
There will be two areas of
employment offered: a coordina-
tor for international relations or
an assistant English teacher. As a
CIR, a candidate must already
exhibit a functional command of
the English language since his or
her primary duty will be working
with governments in enhancing
international relations.
As an AET candidate, how-
ever, applicants do not need as
strong a background in the Japa-
nese language since their primary
duty will beaiding Japanese teach-
ers with the instruction of the
English language. Ideally, this part
of the Program strives to indoctri-
nate an international perspective
in Japanese students by promot-
ing an extensive education in for-
eign languages.
Candidates must also be
thirty-five years of age and have
obtained a Bachelor's degree bv
August, 1990. In addition, AET
applicants must practice excellent
English pronunciation, rhythm,
intonation, and voice projection;
have good English writing skills;
and exhibit a genuine interest in
Japan and its people.
Formerly a junior high school
teacher, Foushee says her primary
reason for participating in the
Program is to learn more about
the Japanese educational system.

Mordred plavs funky metal
California band
By DEANNA NEVGLOSKI
S�aH Writer
A citv best known for its dis-
coveries of underground speed
and thrash metal sensations like
Metallica, Testament and Exodus,
San Francisco has given birth to
another bunch of underground
thrashers. It's more than just
metal it's a combo of fusion, hip
hop, neo-classicism, speed, and a
fine flavor of funk that gives you
Mordred.
Mordred tags are vocalist
Scott Holderbv, guitarists Dannv
White and Jim Sanguinetti, bass
master Art Liboon and drummer
Gannon Hall. Mordred, a name
taken from the illegitimate son of
King Arthur, has been dubbed
everything from funkv metal to
bizarre metal.
I wouldn't call it bizarre, but
funky is a pretty accurate descrip-
tion. It's about time Northern
California unleashed an originallv
cool band, and Mordred is defi-
nitely not a band to do something
that's already been done.
Troof oi this can be heard on
the band's debut LP "Fool's
Game that came out on the Euro-
metal label Noise. The LP was
released in Europe a few months
ago, and Mordred found itself to
be the first American act signed to
this curopean label. "Fool's
Game" saw its American release
in October.
Formed in Februarv of 1986,
funk bassist Liboon is the only
original member left in the band.
Originallv building on a Sabbath-
hke, medieval, heavy metal sound,
the musical direction of the band
changed with the recruiting of
drummer Hall and guitarist White.
Influenced by such bands as
the Police, Rush and Missing Per-
Woodstock
sons, Hall added many new di-
mensions when he joined the band.
While Hall thrived on progressive
rock. White craved the sounds of
funk masters such as Rick James,
Cameo and Earth, Wind and Fire.
With theadditionof vocalist Hold-
erby, who is a devout follower of
English and avant rock like Pil
and David Bowie, Mordred be-
came a band that dared to com-
bine these influences to make a
completely original sound.
"We want to do something
different with the genre Hall
said. Mordred has incorporated
all their influences into the heavy
metal genre for a more interesting
and complex sound.
Hall, the principal lyricist for
the band, said that the album has
a lot of "techno metal with funk
aspects However, he admitted
that they're not limited by that
genre or concerned with doing
straight-up anything.
"1 went to GIT for a year, and
that opened me up to different
styles White said. "When I came
back here (to San Francisco) it
naturally got me into funk and
fusion
Newest member and guitarist
Sanguinetti, along with White,
went to the guitar university, GIT,
in Los Angeles. These GIT won-
der boys broadened their musical
horizons and together created a
heavy-duty, stereo, metal guitar
sound.
"Musically, we would like to
move people, to stir people physi-
cally and emotionally, when they
hear one of our songs Hall said.
"We're not an intellectual thrash
band, we re humans with human
feelings, and we're not afraid to
express them
Hall admits there is no real
message Mordred is trying to get
emerges
across, and even though his songs
are often serious, he is in it for the
fun. "We don't take ourselves too
seriously and we don't want to be
taken too seriously he said.
"Heavy metal is a very strong,
straight forward kind of music
that, until we grow out of it, we'll
keep playing Liboon said.
Hall agreed, "Yeah, metal
really drives. It probably has to do
with our age. We have a lot of
energy and we like to pound it
out
If you pick up a copy of "Fool's
Game" you'll get to hear that per-
cussive, rhythmic style that sets
Mordred apart from the rest of the
San Francisco underground.
The band's funk side is appar-
ent on the first videosingle
"Everydav's A Holiday The
single is filled with metal guitars,
funkv grooves, and high-tech
scratching by Aaron "D.J. Pause"
Vaughn, who is also featured in
the video.
"Sever and Splice" and "Shat-
ter" are the two heaviest songs on
the'album. "Shatter" adds a raw
touch to the funky sideof Mordred,
and has guest vocals by Chuck
Billy of Testament.
And as a joke, Mordred did a
cover of the Rick James' classic
'Super Freak Thrash fans will
get a kick out of this remake, and
mavbe one day Mordred will
decide to do their own garage days
revisited with the '70s funk clas-
sics.
Lyrically, the songs on the LP
are very deep, and often compli-
cated. But that'so.k. because these
thrash rats just wanna have fun.
Mordred is an original metal
band, and they should have no
problems casting a brain-scorch-
ing spell on the metal world.

Carolina University. He once
headed the Writing Center. He
likes to play basketball, watch
"�Football and see his son play soc-
�'crr' "
Bizzaro left Buffalo for Wood-
stock in a van full of buddies. They
brought with them a tent, and
some corn and apples. They set up
their tent five miles outside the
concert in Bethel. The long walk
back and forth to the tent pro
vided time for singing and raising
hell, as Bizzaro puts it.
"1 played a kazoo; people from
all over came up and requested
songs. It was the closest 1 ever
came to being a rock star. Most of
the poets of my generation are
failed rock stars
Bizzaro remembers wearing
cut off shorts, sandals and black-
framed glasses like the ones John
Sebastian wore in a movie.
Bizzaro's hair fell slightly below
his shoulders and he had what he
calls a fu manchu moustache. You
might be able to pick him out in
the Woodstock documentary,
Three Days of Peace and Music.
He now regrets the loss of his
Woodstock tickets. When the
concert became officially free, he
tore them up and threw them in
the air.
He said: "Drugs were every-
where, people had Ihem laying
out on tables like they were food
vendors. I say this one guy trip-
ping out on brown acid. He was
crying and pulling out his hair. At
one time, I had four pipes in my
hand. I didn't know what to do
with them all
Bizzaro said the freedom to
express oneself made the concert
famous: "No one was afraid. If
you wanted to do drugs, you did
them. If you wanted to take off
your clothes, you did. The naked
beach scene in the movie was a
shock tactic for the people who
weren't there. People who weren't
walking around naked were not
bothered by the people that were
Bizzaro agrees with all the
weather reports. "We were slid-
ing around in the mud. The rain
was cold. Most of my friends left
early, leaving two of us to carry
back pounds of wet sleeping bags
and blankets. We ditched them on
the road. Later we found out we
had thrown out two cameras full
of pictures of the concert. Mv
friends were mad but I wouldn't
have thrown awav the cameras if
I had known they were there
During the concert, Bizzaro
hitched a ride to pick up his girl-
friend in Monticello. He and a
bunch of other people climbed
aboard on an old truck loaded
down with hay. It was like their
own private hav ride. Bizzaro
eventually met up with his girl-
friend at a Lutheran church and
brought her back to the concert
with him. Today he is married to
the same woman.
According to Bizzaro, the
concert was good, but sad. "Ev-
eryone was having a good time,
but we were all conscious of the
fact that people were being killed
in Vietnam. It was never far from
your mind
Bizzaro thought the best part
of Woodstock was being unafraid
to express yourself. He pointed
out again the drugs, the naked-
ness and all the other things nor-
mally forbidden by society.
"The '60s are still a part of me.
I'm not afraid

sive cattle raising and mineral

deforestation. Lumbering and
cattle raising were, and still are,
given tax incentives or credits.
rod ay, ca 11 le ra 1 si ng represen ts t he
single largest cause of rainforest
destruction. Much of the beef is
exported to the U.S. to be sold in
fast food chains.
Brazil's population, which is
highly urbanized, uses and owns
onlyasrnall percentage of the land.
In fact, seventy percent of the
population is landless. Manv
people are forced to move out to
the rainforest, clearing the land
tor small-scale farming based on
crop rotation and slash-and-bum
practices As the topsoil is e-
tremel) thin, a typical peasant
family's tract oi land lasts only
about three1 years.
When the landless farmer then
moves on to find new soil, corpo-
rate-owned cattle ranchers move
in to expand their already sprawl-
ing ranches. At this point, regen-
eration of the land becomes im-
possible. Even in the unlikely
event that any topsoil is left at all.
full recuperation would take at
least a century or two.
As the valuable land is lost,
the people of Latin America are
becoming increasingly impover-
ished. The poverty, however,
extends tar beyond Brazilian bor-
ders, tor this land has also been a
source of many medicines usl by
industrialized nations. More
importantly, given its essential
role in stabilizing global climate,
the Amazon's demise may be a
harbinger of global disaster.
Fortunately, some grassroot
organizations in Brazil actively
endorse long-term land valuesand
are working to fight deforestation.
Chico Mendes, a leader of the
Rubber Tappers and outspoken
proponent of rainforest preserva-
tion, gained international atten-
tion when he was mysteriouslv
murdered earlier this vear. But
his particular group had gained
enough support to pressure the
World Bank into renouncing all
plans for "environmentally un-
sound projects Another posi-
tiveoutcome was the formation of
"The Alliance of Rain Forest
Peoples an alliance between
Brazilian Indians and a small
group of Portugese, who are
conducting regular forums on
saving the rainforests
Methods of sustainable land
use are an ecological imperative.
Instead oi using forest resources
as vehicles for mining and live-
stock operations, the proposed
changes for forestry and land
regulations should remove incen-
tives for forest clearing. If lessons
from the past are heeded, future
development of the Amazon will
be dramatically different from
what it is today. On the other
hand, if the Third World contin-
ues to adopt the developmental
practicesof affluent countries, thev
will only amplify the already se-
vere environmental damage.
How can we better educate
ourselves on this global crisis? At
7:30 p.m. on Thursday evening,
November 30, Maria Teresa Ortiz
and Guillermo W. Mann will speak
in room 1031 oi ECU'S General
Classroom Building on "Conser-
vation in Latin America: Can Sus-
tainable Economies and Ecologi-
cal Integrity Coexist?" Sn. Ortiz, a
native of Boh via, helped negotiate
the first "debt-for-Nature" swap
in history and is a recipient of the
Global 500 Award for conserva-
tion achievement (1988), given by
the United Nations' Environ-
mental Program. Sr. Mann, a
native of Chile and former direc-
tor of Chile's National Park Sys-
tem, is vice president for Strategic
Planning at Conservation Inter-
national, a Washington, D.C
based organization working for
the conservation of natural habi-
tats in Mexico, Costa Rica, Bolivia
and other Latin American Coun-
tries.
The insights of Ortiz and
Mann could not be more timely,
for we can no longer deny the
pressing issues of environment,
economics, and social inequality
which affect millions of people
worldwide. It is time to rethink
our ideas on development and
progress. Though the problem is
complex, many individuals and

(.tvrg Buchner's "Danton's
Death" will tx1 presented by the
i ast Carolina Playhouse on De-
cember 6, 7, 8 and 9, 19,vj at 8:15
p m. in the McGinnis 1 heatre.This
spectacular epic ot the French
Revolution is being produced to
commemorate France's Bicenten-
nial.
"Danton's Iith" will be the
last East Carolina Playhouse pro-
duction directed bv retiring pro-
ducerdirector Edgar R. Loessin,
and will feature music composed
by Otto Henry, ECU School of
Music, and songs written bv Mort
Mine, ECU Department of The-
atre Arts.
1 eeling himself being crushed
under the ghastly fatalism of his-
tirv. the twenty-two vear old
Buchner wrote' Danton's Death
v hich captures the hopesand turv
and disappointment of that tre-
mendous time referred to as the
French Revolution.
The plav is involved with two
heroic figures of the revolution,
Georges Danton and Maximilien
Robespierre, who are philosophi-
cally opposed to thedirection their
country should take. The fiery
Robespierre is the essence of revo-
lutionary zeal; Danton is the
calmer advocate of bourgeois re-
form. One of the two must fall;
and in passionate times, invari-
ably the calmer individuals suc-
cumb to the hungrv mobs.
"Danton's Death" fills the theatre
with the tickle, lund, terrifying
c c lone of the Revolution.
The plav torms a staggering
spectacle, with torrential mob
scenes, drunken brawling on the
street, bellowing and gathering
frenzy at the Convention, and
surging passions at the trial. The
single-eyed fanatic, Robespierre,
embodies the basic heartlessness
of the humanitarian doctrinaire.
Love and beauty persist,
evoked bv the two women be-
loved of Danton and of Desmoul-
ins who, though not prominent in
the play, give a splendid, almost
romantic quality to the hard his-
torical realism. Tempestous pas-
sion, pathos, human integrity, and
poetic beauty surge to tragic exal-
tation in Buchner's masterpiece.
Christopher James Wright will
be playing the role of Danton. As
a professional actor, Wright has

Looking for their second win

t he road Tuesday night to face the
pgies of North Carolina A&T
and coasted to a 76-50 basketball

'heir first two games, but that it
-till has a lot of kinks left to work
nit. One wrinkle Pierson pointed
ut is the team's timing, but added
us is to be expected with the
iddirion of new players.
TheLadvPiratesopened their
season last Friday night in
Statesboro, Georgia, falling to a
itrong Ga. Southern team, 77-74.
Fonya Hargrove led the team in
scoring with 16 points and was 4
tor 9 from the charity stripe �
giving the sophomore forward a
areer high 20 points. Hargrove
iiso lead the team in turnovers
with five. Just over a week ago,
juniorcenterforward Sarah Gray
underwent knee surgery. "You
could tell she was hurt, it showed
Pierson said about Gray's 50 per-
cent effort from the free-throw line.
"The team played great and
played hard Pierson said, but
added, "first game jitters" got the
best of the Lady Pirates. Despite
the pressure on freshman Gaynor
O'Donnell, the 56" forward had
a "great effort" with 12 assists �
two short of an ECU game record.
"The difference came at the
line Pierson said referring to the
team's 40 percent free-throw ef-
fort.
In Saturday's win over Au-
gusta College ECU Coach Pat
Pierson was able to play all 13
players, including Sarah Gray.
Gray had started "to return to her
old self, and started to regain her
confidence Pierson said as Gray
came off the bench for a game-
high 17 points. Senior Irish Ha-
milton was the only other ECU
player in double figures with 13.
"I was happy to see almost
everyone contribute to the game

Head coach Mike Steele and
the ECU basketball team were on
a mission Wednesday night in
Greensboro - seek and destroy.
Perhaps "destroyed" is a hy-
perbole compared to the Pirates'
performance in last night's game,
but the ECU team went "seeking"
their first win of the season and
came away with a 60-57 victory
over the Spartans of UNC-G .
"We've still got a long way to
go said Steele in reference to the
team's performance. "We're play-
ing with a lot of young kids, but
I'm pleased with the way they
played tonight
Taking a 33-25 lead at halftime,
the Pirates allowed the Spartans
to close the gap and take control
just six minutes into the second
half, 36-35.
The game teeter-tottered back
and forth as both teams battled
for the leacL' With 2:30 left in the
game, ECU'S junior guard Jeff
Whitaker hit a 3-point shot toput
the Pirates up 52-51 - a lead that
they would never relenquish.

Colorado, Notre Dame set for
New Year's Day showdown
By The Associated Press
Colorado is No. 1 in college
foofl all for the first time in school
history. While members of the
team aid it will be fun to have
some " bragging rights they
n't consider their work done
intil an. 1.
That's when the Buffaloes,
�reviously No. 2 behind top-
inked Notre Dame, meet the
hting Irish in the Orange Bowl
or what could be the national
hampionship.
Colorado moved up in The
Associated Press poll on Monday
after Miami beat Notre Dame 27-
10 Saturday. The Fighting Irish,
who had been No. 1 since the first
week of the season, fell to No. 5,
while Miami rose three places to
No. 4.
Alabama, the only other ma-
pr undefeated team, moved up
two places to No. 2 while once-
beaten Michigan remained third
after beating Ohio State 28-18.
Alabama, which had the week off,
finishes its regular season Satur-
day at Auburn.
The top five teams all figure to
have a shot at the national cham-
pionship. Colorado can win it by
bearing Notre Dame in the Or-
ange Bowl, but if the Buffaloes
lose it would open the door for the
other four teams.
" It is going to be our ultimate
challenge Colorado coach Bill
McCartney said. " Anyone who
knows anvthing about Notre
Dame and its great traditions
knows that they will bounce back
from the Miami loss. You can count
on that
Colorado players expressed
reserved pleasure on Monday.
" It's really not a big deal,
because we've still got one more
to play defensive co-captain
Michael Jones said. " If we lose, it
all goes out the window
" It's a great feeling guard
Darrin Muilenburg said but we
know we have to prove it and
finish it off with one last game
" I feel the same as I did when
we were No. 9 linebacker Alfred
Williams said. " It feels good, but

Spurrier meets with Florida officials
UNC-Grecnsboro rallied sev-
eral times to close the margin to
within one, but senior guard Reed
Lose hit four free throws in the
final seventeen seconds to seal the
victory for the Pirates.
"We had chances to pull away
early Steele said. "But they
fought back
"We've still got a
long way to go.
-Mike Steele
Leading the Pirates in scoring
was freshman center IkeCopeland
with 14 points. Junior forward Tim
Brown had 12 points of his own
for the night, and Lose added
another 11 to the Pirates' total.
Last night's win moves ECU'S
record to 1-2 on the season, while
moving UNC-Greensboro to a 1-
3 record. Coach Steeleand hisband
Pirates take to the floor again on
Monday, Dec. 4 as they host
Francis Marion in Minges Coli-
seum with tip off set for 7 p.m.
Aspden named
to second-team
all-conference
(SID) � T.J. Aspden, ECU'S
senior soccer midfielder, was
named to the Colonial Athletic
Association second-team all-con-
ference squad, the league office
announced.
Aspden, who was the Pirates
leading scorer in 1989, was the
only player from ECU to gain all-
league honors.
Aspden netted five goals and
three assists for his team-high 13
points on the year. His best con-
test came against Francis Marion
on Oct. 3, when he had one goal
and two assists in a 6-4 overtime
loss.
Aspden is the second Pirate
player to be named to a C AA post-
season team in the past two yeas.
In 1988, goalkeeper Mac Kendall
was named the CAA's second
team goalie.

DURHAM � Duke football
coach Steve Spurrier said after a
meeting with University of Flor-
ida officials that he will not make
a decision on his coaching future
until after Duke and Horida have
played their respective postsea-
son bowl games.
Spurrier met for nearly two
hours Saturday at his home in
Durham with Florida's selection
committee: Athletic Director Bill
Arnsparger, interim Florida Presi-
dent Dr. Robert Bryan and Dr.
Nick Cassisi, a resident of
Gainesville, Fla.
"I'm definitely planning on
coaching the bowl game, just like
I said last week Spurrier said
Monday night after returning from
a news conference in Birmingham.
"That wouldn't be good for any-
body (to decide before the bowl
game). That wouldn't be good for
either side.
"It was just a general get to
know each other thing. There in
a bowl game and we're in a bowl
game. I want to coach the bowl
game no matter what happens. So
there's no need for any serious
talks at this time
Spurrier said a second meet-
ing would be held in the next two
weeks.
Duke meets Texas Tech in the
All American Bowl in Birming-
ham, Ala on Dec. 28. Florida faces
Washington in the Freedom Bowl
in Anaheim, Calif on Dec. 30.
Spurrier would neither con-
firm nor deny that Florida made
him an offer during the Saturday
meeting.
"You ask them all that Spur-
rier said. "We just got to know
each other a little bit and planned
on getting together again in a
couple of weeks and talk some
more and see what happens. That
was about it
Florida officials have said
Spurrier is their top choice to re-
place Galen Hall, who resigned at
midseason following admissions
of wrongdoing within the school's
football program.
Florida is reportedly set to
offer Spurrier a contract of $300,000
annually through a base salary,
television show and endorse-
ments, The Durham Morning
Herald reported Tuesday. Spur-
rier isattractive to Horida not only
because he has led Duke to a 20-
12-1 record in three seasons, but
also because he was the school's
onlv Heisman Trophy winner, a
honor he received following the
1966 season.
Duke discussed a renegotia-
tion of Spurrier's contract last
week. Spurrier had signed a four-
year contract prior to the 1989
season thatincludesabonusclause
should he stay through the 1992
season. Duke reportedly offered
Spurrier a new contract last week
with an annual base salary of
$100,000, the newspaper said.
"We just talked Amsbarger
said of Saturday's meeting with
Spurrier. "It's always good to visit
with people. We had this oppor-
tunity; we took advantage of it
When asked why Bryan and
Cassissi flew to Durham for the
meeting, Arnsbarger said: "I guess
they were available and interested.
I don't want to put words in their
mouths
Bryan could not be reached
for comment, but Linda Gray, a
spokesman for the University of
Florida said: "It was a prelimiary
discussion. He (Bryan) had not
met Steve Spurrier. This was an
opportunity for him to meet and
chat with him

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.
(AP) � Those attending the Dec.
28 All American Bowl might be
better off leaving their watches at
home, said the coach of Texas
Tech's 25th-ranked football team,
which meets No. 20 Duke in the
13th annual game.
"Don't plan on a three-hour
ball game Spike Dykes said at a
news conference Monday. "We
may be playing five or six hours
because we're going to be throw-
ing it, too. It's going to be wild. I
think it Will be a great matchup
and I imagine there will be a lot of

"We'll do everything we can
to put on a good show here said
Steve Spurrier, the Duke coach.
"It should be a heck of a game
The bowl, Duke's first since
its 1960 team defeated Arkansas

West Virginia's defense will line
up in the Gator Bowl against a
team unlike any it has faced this
season, according to Clemson
coach Danny Ford.
And West Virginia, Ford
added, will present theTigers with
a unique defensive problem of
their own�what to do with Ma jor
Harris.
"1 think they'll like the fact
that it will be a different challenge
that they don't see a lot Ford said
Tuesday of the Tigers' option of-
fense. "They've played against a
whole lot bigger people, but I don't
know if they've played against
people who have run any better or
quicker.
"I think thaf s the difference.
They'll see an option team versus
a wide-open throw, run-it-right-
at-you-type team
No. 14 Clemson (9-2) meets
the 17th-ranked Mountaineers (8-
2-1) in the Gator Bowl at Jackson-
ville, Fla on Dec. 30. Clemson lost
its grip on the Atlantic Coast
Conference championship after
midseason losses to Georgia Tech
and Duke. West Virginia was
beaten by Virginia Tech and Perm
State and tied by Pittsburgh.
Ford, speaking via a confer-
ence call from Clemson, said he
doesn't know much about the
Mountaineers except that Harris
is the quarterback.
"1 don't know exactly how
we'll play him yet Ford said. "I
think we'll have some problems
with him. I'm not sure how he
hurts you the most, running or
throwing. He's very dangerous
Harris, who in three seasons
became the first college player to
pass for 5,000 yards and rush for
2,000, averaged 7.8 yards a play
this season. He ran for 919 yards
and six touchdowns in 144 carries
and completed 131 of 224 passes
for 1,939 yards and 16 touchdowns
He was intercepted 10 times.
Harris is ranked eighth na-
tionally in Division 1-A in total
offense and ninth in passing effi-
ciency.
He will be facing a defense
ranked fifth nationally in scoring
defense, sixth in total defense,
seventh against the rush and 22nd
in pass defense. This is the first
Clemson team ever to rank among
the top 25 in the four major defen-
sive categories.
Outside linebackers Levon
Kirkland, John Johnson and
Wayne Simmons have combined
for half of Oemson's 22 quarter-
back sacks.
"1 know our linemen aren't
going to catch him Ford said of
Harm. "I'm not sureour lineback-
ers can catch him, probably not.

Ford called Harris a "danc-

ing the big play and a defender
look foolish with a head fake.
"I don't think we've seen

Harris accounted for 2,858 of
the Mountaineers' 4,764 yards, or
60 percent. The Pittsburgh native,
fifth in the last year's balloting for

ered among the front-runners this

prestigious award.

BAD FICTION
The perils of Paulina
Judith Krampz
Paulina slipped off her heels
ana sat down on the velour sofa
with the wad of bills. Her gold Visa
was just about maxed. Her plati-
num AmEx had over fifteen
hundred dollars on it. Even her
Macy's account had a aent in it.
Life was not looking great.
Sure, she had her career. What
twenty-six-year-oid woman
wouldn't be thrilled to be in her
snoes (as tight as they seemea
sometimes), to be assistant to the
vice-president in charge of men's
scents for Oinique'5 She had her
career, a hot penthouse apart-
ment on the East Side, and a boy-
friend she was reasonably sure
ioved her. Why then, was she so
miserable?
It wasn't the bills. She could
handle that. No, she felt unful-
filled. Something was missing in her
life. Dermit had repeatedly asked
her to marry him. but somehow her
intuition tola her that wasn't what
she was missing. Once he even
told her he wasn't as averse to
children as he pretended. She
massaged her aching heel, it
wasn't that, either. Children were
something she didn't need right
now.
She tcjed back her golden
mane and lay her head upon the
back of the sofa. Kenny G's saxo-
phone wailed from the stereo. Ail
she wanted was to get away for
awhile. Maybe to the Bahamas.
She and Dermit had had so much
fun last summer. But this time she
wanted to be alone. Alone to walk
the bleached beaches, stare
poignantly out at the crystal sea,
and drink spiced rum underneath
the palm trees.
She had time off coming. She
could get it as soon as next week-
end. She stood up suddenly, her
breasts pointing defiantly ahead
of her. Yes, she thought to herself.
I can no longer deny myself. I must
leave for a while. I must get in
touch with myself as a woman and
find out what I really want. I must
redefine my career goals, my at-
tention needs � yes, even my
sexual neeas. Though Dermit was
a more than adeguate lover,
sometimes she felt as though she
was drifting away when they were
in bed. Drifting to a shore that had
no name, but a shore that terrified
and fascinated her at the same
time.
The plane landed on the Ber-
muda runway. Paulina stepped off
the plane with a Jight heart. She
wore sandals that let the oceanic
breezes caress each toe. All this
was hers for a week. She grabbed
her travel bag and set out for the
hotel.
Dermit had been flatly against
this trip. Locked into a big merger,
he couldn't get time off from work
(as she had known he couldn't)
and he didn't understand why she
would leave without him.
"Honey, if you just wait till next
month, we can be together. We
coula finish exploring all those
waterfalls we didn't get to last
time he said. The memory of the
waterfall was a painful one for
Paulina. The touch of his wet,
deeply tanned chest against hers,
the cool water splashing between
their mouths as they kissed pas-
sionately, his hairy forearm reach-
ing slowly between her these
images and more rushed through
her head, and she remembered
why she loved him sc much. Then
she remembered all the misery she
had endured alone on those nights
when he wasn't there, when she
was alone in her office, alone
walking aown the street
last year. He had the deepest tan
she'd ever seen on a human being,
and his voice was gravelly when
he spoke. His accent was notice-
able, but she couldn't place it.
"No harm done. miss. Just glad
it was a beautiful lass like yourself
bumpin' me an' not anyone else
His perfect teeth shone like well-
polished marble, and she wanted
to kiss their whiteness. She felt
mesmerized ana had to bite her lip
to remember Dermrt's name.
"Uh thank you Are you
she didn't know what to say. She
wanted to ask if he was staying for
the whole week, if he wanted a
arink. if he liked waterfalls, but her
insides had turned to jelly and she
stammered, "okay? I didn't mean
to bump you
"S'alright. I'll play rugby again,
I think. Are you alone on this beau-
tiful isle? Lass like you must have a
husband, boyfriends at least His
almost-brown lips moveb like the
tide over the white beach of his
teeth.
"Uh well, yes. He's back
home. Working. As usual The
"There was a smoldering tension
between them.
Something unconsummated
"It's only for a week. I just need
to to get some perspective. I
feel I feel burned out. Dermit-
Bear, I love you. but I'll be back
next week. And I'll have a better
tan than you she laughed.
"That's what really hurts he
laughed too, and things seemed
to be all right again. But that night,
the dread crept up on her again.
The slow, insidious snaky dread that
comes at three o' clock in the
morning when your lover is fast
asleep and you are wide awake
trying to decide if he really loves
you. or if you're just one more
acquisition.
The flashback enaed as
abruptly as it had begun, and
Paulina found herseff at customs.
She bent down to check her bags
and accidently elbowed the knees
of the man behind her. She stood
up guickly, apologizing.
"I'msorry. I didn't �" she hatred
in mid-sentence. The man was
holding her elbow as she rose. His
short. c urly brown hair was streaked
with the natural gold that only surf-
ers and lifeguards get. His blue eyes
looked like the unbroken crystal of
the waters she and Dermit dove in
customs clerk motioned impa-
tiently for her bag. and the stranger
hefted it up for her and placed it
on the X-ray machine.
"A shame for him, good luck
for me. I'm Forrest Monahan. I'm
staying at the Casa Royale. Would
you like to join me for a drink to-
night?" His golden bicep moved
her packed bag with a grace she
thought impossible for humans.
"I'm staying there too. Yes. I
think I'd like that. I'd I'd like that
very much. I'm Paulina Decateur,
Mr. Monahan
She held her hand out to shake,
and he lifted it and kissed her knuck-
les. "Then let's get our luggage
and get out into that sun we came
for. shall we?"
The week flew by too guickly.
Forrest took her dancing every
night, snorkeling or sailing during
the day, and by Thursday she felt
like a teenager in love. Her nightly
phone calls to Dermit contained
happy bits of gossip about her new
friend Jaquee that she'd met and
the wonderful time she was having
with her. Paulina hated to He. but
Dermit would ne v e? understand her
friendship with a man like Forrest.
Dermit sounded cranky and tired
on the phone, worn out from the
hassles of corporate life. Paulina
reflectea that that must be how
she sounded most of the time too.
But here she sounded like
the woman she'd always dreamed
of being. Forrest brought out the
best in her. And yet he was distant
when she asked about his life. He
was reluctant to talk about it and
woulc change the subject imme-
diately. He would dash into the
surf, aanng her to follow. But he
woula listen attentively to her prob-
lems, her concerns, especially
about those problems with Dermit.
He was a true friend and yet
there was a smouldering tension
between them. Something
unconsummated. As Fnday's dawn
approached, she wondered why
he hadn't made a move on her
yet. He evinced interest, certainly
but was he being a gentleman,
or was he not enthralled by her
womanly charms. She decided to
put it to the test the next morning
with her most daring one-piece.
Lying on the beach the next
morning. she asked him if he'd seen
the local waterfalls. "Yes. I have
he replied. "And a most romantic
spot they are. Would you like to
see one?"
She nodded yes, and he gath-
erea their towels and began walk-
ing. He held out his hand and she
took it, excited and a little afraid of
what she'd initiated. They walked
back to the hotel and got his rented
Porsche. They drove off the main
road and parked the car. Holding
hands, they walked into the forest.
By sheer chance, he'd picked
the same waterfall she and Dermit
had found. She decided it was
better not to show any recogni-
tion, and she oohea and ahhed
over the sheer splendor of the
place. He suggested a swim and
they lay theirtowels upon the rocks
and dove into the clear pool of
sparkling water. Minnows fled in
fright as they frolicked in the water.
She held her breath and swam
under, between his legs. He
grabbed them and pulled her
back Hoisting her above his head,
he threw her back into the water.
When she splashed back to
him he reached for her ana pulled
her to him. They embraced and
then somehow her lips met his.
They kissed longingly, the tropical
birds squawking approval. He
broke the kiss first and stared at
her. his eyes melting her heart.
"Paulina there's something I must

senting Greenville with a dif-
ferent sort of entertainment
something to be enjoyed bv all

Scheduling campus events is a complicated task
By PAULA BLANCHARD
Before the current Perform-
ing Arts Series season is barely
underway, next year's series is
already on one person's mind.
Mr. Rudolph Alexander, assis-
tant vice chancellor for Student
Life and director of University
Unions and Student Activities,
has the formidable job of lining
up the performances to be pre-
sented in Wright Auditorium.
Alexander said it all starts
with selecting events that will
appeal to the people of eastern
North Carolina. The events are
selected by the Performing Arts
Series Committee, which is
comprised of knowledgeable
and interested representatives
from ECU students, faculty and
staff, as well as area residents.
This committee reviews litera-
ture sent to them from many
different artists' management
companies and agencies. After
considering who is touring and
what the fees are, the commit-
tee decides what events to bring
to campus.
To keep the costs down,
Alexander works with other
regional presenters of perform-
ing arts to buy several perform-
ances of an artist or group
within a specific time frame.
This is called "block-booking
By making these arrangements,
Alexander is able to attract
groups such as large foreign
orchestras whose travel costs
are very high.
All bookings are done at
least one year in advance. After
the basic arrangements are
made, such as the date, fee and
technical requirements, a ver-
bal agreement is worked out
between the artists' represen-
tative and Alexander. This is
the time that calls for hard
negotiations with the artists'
management.
After a verbal agreement is
reached, the artists' represen-
tative sends a formal written
contract to Akoxander, who then
reads through it very carefully,
deleting any clauses or para-
grapns that request commit-
ments that cannot be met or
conflict with university poli-
cies. Each change to the con-
tract must b? initialed and da ted
by Alexander. A cover letter
about the changes that were
made and a copy of the stan-
dard addendum on specific
requ irements for using Univer-
sity facilities are sent back with
the amended contract. The
management is required to
respond to the changes within
a specified time period. If a
response is not made, the con-
tract is considered void. Some-
timesa contract is returned with
more changes, and the process
is repeated. A great deal of
give and take is required to
reach a mutually satisfactory
arrangement.
Special requests are some-
times made by presenters and
or artists. Occasionally artists
maybeasked to participate in a
reception. The artists are usu-
ally moreeccentricand extrava-
gant in their requests, but Alex-
ander explained that within the
fine arts the requests are gener-
ally reasonable. He also noted
that any requests for alcoholic
beverages are deleted from the
contract.
Despite the sometimes
quirky requests, Alexander
said: "Most of the artists are
pleasantandappreciativeof the
University's hospitality. We
very seldom have a difficult
time with performers He said
that sometimes more estab-
lished artists are easier to work
with than rising stars because
new performers just gaining
success tend to have more frag-
ile egos.
Alexander has held this
job for 28 years, and takes great
pride in helping to bring the
finest artists, ensembles, thea-
ter and dance to this series.
"This is a major series said
Alexander, "the finest and most
diverse one offered by anyone
in the region. We intend to
continue offering the best, and
we appreciate the support of
the campus, city and our pa-
trons. We strive to make each
season a little better than the
last
Because of escalated costs
associated with presenting the
performing arts, insuring this
commitment of excellence is
becoming increasingly difficult.
At present, monev to fund the
senes comes from several dif-
ferent sources: a portion of each
student's activity fee, ticket
sales and grant monies. "In the
future adds Alexander,
"Pacesetters will become a vi-
tal source of fundsenabling the
series not only to hold its own,
but to experience growth as
well

Lynette Johnson, sponsor
of the Pure Gold Dancers for
the past four years, said that
the girls must maintain a 2.0
GPA, take a daily dance or
aerobic class on their own time
and attend official practices
regularly.
"Most of the girls are dance
majors or minors and have
previous training in dance

Local band boasts recent recording
By MARY ANNE ULLERY
Staff Wnrtr
"here's a new group that
has taken Greenville bv storm.
Boasting a 12 inch single thev
recently recorded, they have
done various performances at
the Rio appeared on televi-
sion and sung for several radio
stations. Perhaps you've heard
ol them They're "Thorn, Tim
and "orrence
It all began Feb. 3 when
three ECL students, Thorn
irrish, who is a dance major,
1111 Mils, an art education
major, and Torrence Mack, a
criminal justice major, got to-
gether and entered a Starsinger
contest sponsored bv Rio! and
1 lot 104. Thev did a group
performance as "Thorn, Tim

of the seven week semifinal
rounds, thev went on to beat 18
contestants in the finals on Feb.
3 putting them well on their
wav to a Kosmos Recording

Not long after their Starsin-

and sang their way into Audio
Arts Recording Studio. In a
matter of months. " I horn. I mi

Room addition follows
a sports theme
By HEATHER DONAGHY
Special to The Entertainer
Rio! The Club has changed
itsatmospherebyaddinganew
room to its bar area that carries
a sports theme.
Following a sports theme
is an idea that has taken over
many bars and restuarants all
over the country. Similar estab-
lishments furnished with tele-
vision sets, pool tables and
sporty games can be found in
almost anv city.
Rio! management said they
added to the bar to till the need
tor more customer space. Thev
said thev also wanted to ap-
peal to more people, and the
additionofasportsroom might
draw in a group of patrons who
have never visited the club
before. The room is geared
towards those who want a place
to relax, watch a game on T.V.
and play a game of pool. And,
of course, it is also a place to
enjoy an ice cold beer.
Rio! began work on the
sports room shortly after fin-
ishing the plans in early Au-
gust. Thesports room itself took
only three weeks to complete.
Construction included the
removal of the far wall behind
the deejay booth, revealing the
expanded area and providing
an entrance to the new bar. The
new room cost approximately
$50,000 to build and the man-
agement said it has proved to
be a great success with the
customers since the grand
opening on Aug. 29.
As you descend the stairs
into the new sports room, you
are greeted with the continu-
ous sound of cracking pool
balls. It may take a moment to
adjust vour eves to the bright
lighting but the calm atmos-
phere is a pleasant escape from
the bustling crowd. The elec-
tronic beeping and music from
the video games mixes with the
dull roar of conversation, leav-
ing onlv the monotonous
pounding of the music you )ust
left behind. Surrounding you
are recreational diversionsand
televisionsdisplavmg the most
important sporting events of
the evening. It is relaxing to sit
back and take it all in for a
while before actually becom-
ing involved in the room's
amusements.
The new Rio! sports nxm
consists of four pool tables,
including a challenge table set
up specifically for those play-
ers who wish to challenge oth-
ers to a game. The challenger
pays $1,50 cents more than the
cost of a regular game, and his
or her name is put on a list to
reserve the game. As long as he
or she continues to win, they
can continue to use the table
without paying for anymore
games.
Other sporty games m-
cludefoosball,basketball shoot,
electronic dart board and video
games. A wet bar is located in
the sports room for the thirsty
sports fan. Both imported and
domestic beers are served.
Rio! features pool and
foosball tournaments every
Wednesday night in the sports
room. The prize is a $50 bar tab.
on Mondays from 7:30 p.m.
such as Vanessa Williams and
AT B. Sure has also been mas-
tered.
Since then, "Thorn, Tim
and Torrence" have continued
to perform at Rio'and also have
appeared on "Awaken" on
channel 9, and the Crime Stop-
pers Telethon on Greenville
Cable.
All oi the group's music is
original most of which has
been written bv Terry
I iighsmith. Thev have a dance
track which can almost be
compared to Depeche Mode
lead vocals on all songs are
sung by Thorn, with Tim, Tor-
rence, acquetta Wilson and
Loretta Moore singing backup.
Each tune is accompanied with
heavy dance and Depech
Mode-like sound to entertain
music and dance lovers. Not
onlv do "Thorn, Tim and Tor-
rence" perform the dance, but
other ECL" dance students do
as well. Laronda Gaskins, Ter-
esa Hollowell, Tern Reed and
Robert and Dorsey McAden
perform with 'Thorn, Tim and
Torrence" to the dance routines
of their songs. I'hecover works
for the "Forbidden Love" al-
bum was also done by ECL) art
students.
N far, "Thorn, rim and
Torrence" have found the
Greenville crowds receptive to
