City's task force

By John Tyson

Ihet IreenvilleC ity( ouncil has plans to form a drug task force that
will involve the students and faculty of F.CTJ in helping to reduce the
number'oi drugs in the area
rhe task force headed bv Rufus I biggins, will trv to pinpoint the
problem ol drugs oming mto( ireenvilleand will focuson thecommu-
nitv a a whole, rv t onh on the students of FCU.
�n arti le in The Daily Reflector earlier this week quoted coun-
cilwoman Mildrew t ouncil as avmg the ' students brought in drugs
"That statement was onlv one of many made in a scries ot state-
ments about the overall drug problem. Council said.
Police i. hief (erry resmond agreed that Council was talking about
drugs coming into the area from everyone, including people from
foreign � unti k s l m ,tl itizens and students.
When asked it then- was a drug problem at the university , Tcsmond
said he did not see an unusually large number ot wrests being made
there for nan i ti
"I don t see anything that would indicate that we have a larger
problem at tl ie university than w ith the community, because we have a
verv largo a immunity, esmond said.
The police chiel mentioned that in a town of about 50,000 people, it
would not be reasonable to segregate any group from the possibility of
involvement in drugs, therefore the task force would look at the
problem objec th el)
The new task force will, according to City Manager Ron Kimble,
"determine what the actual and real problems are, so that the city
council can work on those problems as they are presented
Tesmond is hoping th.it students and faculty of ECU will cooperate
when the lask f r e give suggestions for battling drugs.
"Police t an onlv do so much, we need the assistance from all the
commumtv. he said.

tions when in fact they create ani-
mal herds and then claim to thin
them out through recreational
slaughter
When asked if people were
embracing the animal rights move-
ment, Spitz said. "It will probably
take a long time. I nfortunatelv
right now there are so many people
making monev off the exploita-
tion of animals, and they're mobi-
lizing against us
Two of the films in the video
presentation dealt with alterna-
tives to the use ot animals as food
and to their use in research.
In "Healthy, Wealthy, and
Wise vegetarianism was ex-
plained in a medical and religious
perspective The film said that
religions such as Hinduism and
Buddhism were based against the
eating of-meat '
The film showed Christians
like the Seventh-day Adventists
who were against eating meat
because of a verse in Genesis in
which God said "the seed will be
your meat
Christians who advocated
eating meat affirmed their beliefs
thatGod gave man command over
the animals of the earth to use as
nutrition for their bodies.
As medical evidence against
eating animals, the doctors in the
film stated that the stomach, teeth,
and long gut length of human
beings were not fit to digest meats
properly.
The result of eating meat is a
buildup of fat which causes heart
attacks and high rates of bowel
and breast cancer.
The film "Progress Without
Pain" said that the invention of
antibiotics and medicine did not
have much effect on alreadv de-
clining death rates at the begin-
ning of the century.
"Humanitarian efforts and
social reform did more to cure
disease man all medical efforts
combined said one scientist.
"Progress Without rain" was
the last film in a series that scien-
tifically tried to disprove theories
of achievement through animal
research.
"Of the thousands of medi-
cines on the market, only 210 can
alleviate problems, and they arc
derived from plants or bacteria
one researcher said
Alternatives to animal re-
search include the use of herbal
medicine and emphasis on mind
over bodv techniques such as faith
healing, hypnotism and medita-
tion.
Medical practices which had
been used in the Far East, such as
acupuncture and transcendental
meditation, were also given as
substitutes for animal experimen-
tation.
About 40 people attended the
film event which was held in the
General Classroom building Tues-
day night.
According to Spitz, SETA is
planning more films and events in
the future, specifically a movie on
April 3 at Hcndrix Theatre which
Spitz said is "one of the most effec-
tive movies to date concerning
animal rights issues

Lack of support hurts athletics
Through thick and thin, Pirate sup-
porters have continuously come out and
supported the teams Hut this year seemed
to be a little different tor some reason.
During the football season, tans
"hilled licklen" tor the new and improved
football team Not only did the team have a
great season, but new head coach Bill Lewis
brought a lot of enthusiasm and support to
a program that was slowly, but surely, fall-
ing behind the other Division 1 programs in
the nation
Several times during the 1989 foot-
ball season Pirate fans showed their support
in an exemplary wa) .)ver 55,000 people
watched as the Pirates enjoyed a big win
over Virginia Tech But the- support didn't
stop in (.reenville. The team had support m
their away games, too, like in South Caro-
lina when the II followers, at times, were
louder than the (lamecocks tans.
But when football season ended and
basketball season foiled around, many Pi-
rate tans passed up their tickets�and their
support!
Sure, when big games, like UNC-
Wilmington and lames Madison come to
town, everybody had to be there. But what
tbout the George Mason, .American and
Campbell games.1 Where are the 5,000
screaming, cheering fans?
The tact ot the matter is fans support
their team w hen their team is winning and
slack ott when they are not. There should
not be a part-time fan. Fans are people that
support their team when they win and hope
for better when they lose, but thev still come
out
1 ook at the BA expansion team, the
Charlotte Hornets. Even though thev have
remained in or closely around the cellar of
their conference, the Charlotte Coliseum
remains tilled lor each home game, bans
still soil-out the coliseum, buy paraphenalia
and follow the team despite their extended
losing streaks
So main- times ECU students and
tans have asked: "When will we get the
opportunity to host Duke and get a series
started with, some of the either major pro-
grams iii the state?"
This question can be answered very
easily �go to the games and support the
team
When, the stands are full of scream-
ing tans, the intensity on the floor increases
greatly. Fans have often been responsible
tor it missed free throw, a bad shot or even
a break-away layup.
The revenue generated from a sell-
out is also appealing to these other teams.
Students should remember that all tickets
are already paid tor in your tees, so why not
take advantage oi something that you have
already paid for?
Support is beneficial to any team,
and the more support thev receive thebetter
thev perform. Whether it may be basketball,
football, baseball or lacrosse, ECU athletics
needs full-time supporters.

The ECU administration's
recent decision to terminate the
University Task Force on Recy-
cling and thereby suspend a full-
fledged recycling program on

ward leadership But die response
ot the student body has been no

Gorbachev so highly, was full of
errors and failed to recognize that
he has no choice in the matter.
Gorbachev is cutting back on the
military, not because he has to.
America has won the arms
race. The Soviet economy has
ground to a halt. They can no
longer spend 17 percent of their
gross national product on defense
(212 times more than the United
States). No longer can the Soviet
defense industrial ministries ac-
count for 60 percent of the nation's
machine buildingmetal working
branch of industry
The Soviet economic growth
rate has reached an all time post
war low of 1 percent compared to
over 8 percent in the Ms. Gor-
bachev hasnochoke but to cut the
military in an effort to keep the
economy from a total collapse. The
Soviet Union is more open to in-
vestments from the West not be-
cause they want to embrace de-
mocracy, but, because thev need
western money to help their crum-
bling economy.
The article also said that Gor-
bachev has the backing of all the
Soviet people. This is totally false.
Perestroika has produced noth-
ing but complaints from the So-
viet people. The lines are longer
and the government can't feed its
own people. The Soviet people
havecnticied Gorbachev and his
programs. It is not because oi
public support that Gorbachev is
still in power, but because he
i onsolidated htspowerhold whi n
he got into office. Any person that
opposed him was systematically
removed from office until finallv
there was none to oppose him
Gorbachev is more popular in the
West than in the Soviet Union
In closing, don't paint Gor-
bachev asan angel, every thing he's
done in an effort to salvage the
crumbling economy and keep the
Soviet Union from collapsing into
ruin.

State school boards criticized for Channel One ban
RAI EIGH(AP) Some local
school officials criticized the State
Board of Education after it de
Cided to sue OVef the use of a
Commercial television program
and to expand its ban on the prod-
uct
The board voted Monday to
take the Thomasville Otv school
system to court because of its re-
fusal to abide by the state board's
ban on the use of Channel One, a
12-minute commercial television
program The board also decided
to sue the program's producer,
Whittle Communications, of
Knoxville, Tenn.
The state board had voted to
ban Channel One con tracts signed
after Feb. 1, but Monday declared
that all con tracts for the news show
were void, even if they had been
signed before the board outlawed

cal schools had agreed to show the
program
Some local school officials
criticized the moves, saying they
infringed on the prerogatives of
local boards
The Thomasville school board
set up Monday's confrontation on
Feb. 8 by signing a contract tor the
program, saving the state board

banning the show
Thomasville school Superin-
tendent Ron Singlctary said it's
impossible to separate Channel
One from the larger issue of local
control. "This is symptomatic of
the kind of confusion that has
plagued local boards for the past
20 years � confusion about the
role of the state board in relation
to local boards.
"And this issue doesn't clear
it up at all he added.
Channel One offers a dailv 12-
minutc news program, which
includes two minutes of advertis-
ing. The contract with Whittle
Communications requires schools
to show the program to all stu-
dents each day. In exchange, the
schools are loaned $50,000 worth
of video equipment for the length
of the contract.

WASHINGTON (AP) Fed
eral Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan said Tuesday the econ-

point for an imminent recession
and he predicted continued, al
though modest, economic growth
for the rest of this vear.
Greenspan said the central
bank expects the economy-to grow
far more sluggishly this vear than
the bush administration predicts
That scenario could dash the
administration's hopes of making
significant progress on reducing
the federal budget deficit
Greenspan commented in an
annual appearance before Con-
gress to reveal the bank's all-im-
portant monetary and economic
growth targets for the new year
The testimony bolstered the belief
among many pnvate economists
that the Federal Reserve Board is
not likely to move soon to push
interest rates lower.
Greenspan emphasized a be-

Rishel's poems express in words the tear, doubt and
What kind of person does it take to bo self- expectation that most people counter every d.w of
published? It takes a person willing to put in hours of their lives
hard work, willing to trust, and willing to share his
or her thoughts with the world
Walt Rishel, a history major at ECU, published a
book of his poetry in 1989 and is working on his
second which should be complete bv fury. Rishel's
first book, "Ascending Liabilities" is currently avail-
able in both the Student Stores and at University
Book Exchange.
While trying to publish his book, Rishel said he
learned how to deal with people 'It's the first expe-
rience I've ever had in trying to sell my lite Rishel
explained that his poetrv relays his feelings and
struggles through parts ot his life
There's a lot in the first book about death and
a kit about problems that 1 sometimes created tor
myself. People over-dramatize their lues. I think in
this book there's a little bit ot over-dramatiation.
and a little bit ot it is right on
Poems m the book blend reality and imagination
m a way that shows the author's perspective on
things without forcing the reader to remain in a
mental box, 1 he poems guide the readers minds
while allowing room for reading between the lines.
Rishel writes SO that his readers can relate what they
.ire reading to their own experiences
"Ascending I labilities' is ,i reflection and result
of its author in much the same way Rishel says he is
a reflection of his parents. Rishel dedicated the book
to "Mom & Pad & lesus He said, "It's their book,
written bv their son. I needed something in there to
acknowledge the tact that 1 wouldn't have this talent
it it weren't for them. A lot of the photographs are
personal, and they may not belong there, but 1 felt I
had to have something in there about them. Every-
thing that I am. they made me. fesus, of course, made
us all, and 1 owe everything to Him
Rishel admitted that he didn't give lesus as
much recognition in this book as he would have
liked. "There are a tew things in there that might not
be appealing to lesus if 1 had the opportunity to give
it to Him. But I decided not to compromise my
thoughts and just lease them as 1 had originally
written them. Some things might ho a little harsh but
I meant every thing at some point in time
Rishel said he began writing poetry because it
helped him as he struggled with
doubts through his high school
years. Wrttingpoetry washisway
of expressing pleas and praise to
God, according to Rishel. "1 don't
think I would have ever written it
The book is filled with feelings that most people
can relate to. But Rishel acknowledged that the per-
sonal nature of the book might make it difficult for
some people to grasp. "At the time 1 wrote some of
the poems 1 thought ou had to complicate things to
be intelligent. But I've realized that life doesn't have
to be complicated .it all
Despite this understanding, publishing hi shook
began as a simple project and grew more complex.
When he firs! decided to publish his work, the proj-
ect was just an experiment. But as time went on,
Rishel said, the book "became an obsession
Rishel hose to publish the book on his own after
dealing with Carlton Press in New York City. After

luan Alvarez,aunior,entered
ECU this semester to plav tennis
and has already defeated some of
the better plavers in the nation. He
has beaten the top players at both
Bostonollege and Duke, the lat-
terof which was ranked twentieth
in the NationaK ollegiate Athletic
Association.
Alvarez did not ust bloom
into a great tennis player, he has
worked toward it all of his life.
When he was a junior player in the
Dominican Republic, he was
ranked number one in the coun-
try, and reached a ranking of 70 in
the world in singles play, and 40
as a doubles player
At 17, Alvarez became the
number one men's tennis player
in the i ominican Republic. He
then went to the Central Ameri-
can Junior Championships.
"1 beat several good players,
including Nicholas Pereira, who
is now ranked in the top 100 in the
world before losing in the finals
said Alvarez He then avenged his
singles loss bv capturing the
doubles title.
Alvarez qualified to play in
the Central American Games in
which he won a bronze metal. He
also played in the Pan American
games, and is currently a member
of the Dominican Republic's Davis
Cup team
Alvarez then went to Nick
Bollettien, a coach of many of the
world s top tennis players, to train
for a year He worked out with
Andre Agassi and Jim Courier,
both of whom are now among the
top twenty in the world. While
attending Bollcttien's, he also
played in some satellite tourna
mentsand achieved a world rank-
ing of 717.
Alvarez then went to North
Greenville Junior College in South
Carolina In both 1987 and 1988,
his team captured the Junior Col-
lege National Championships.
"I won the National Junior
College championships in singles
and doubles explained Alvarez.
"I ended up with a 50-2 record
after two years He was also
named an All-Amencan for those
two vears
Alvarez then went to Kinston
for a vear "I did not play any
tennis except with a guy named
Greg Hill who is also a Bollettien
student Alvarez said. "Greg is
one of the top players in the nation
in his age bracket
Alvarez was then approached
by ECU'S coach Bill Moore. "Dr.
Moore said that he was building a
strong tennis program (at ECU)
he said. "He has helped me out,
and at Duke, 1 used a lot of his
Sports Psychology techniques
Alvarez's strong points are his
serve and volley, which helps him
when he plays doubles. "My part-
ner Sammy Tounsi and 1 had a
real good win against Maryland
said Alvarez.
Being an economics major,
Alvarez is experiencing his share
of pressure on and off the court.
"I'm currently taking eight-
een hours with four economics player Alvarez wants to be the
