Tradition continues
at area restaurant

Despite the citv's ban on per-
mits to exceed the noise ordinance,
Durryi's 1907 Restaurant will still
celebrate its annual St Patrick's
Day party Saturday after making
previous arrangements with the
city and local residents.
City of Greenville attorney
Mac McCarlev explained that
there were two types ot noise
permits that the city can issue for
events such as the ParrvTs party.
One is the Permit to Exceed, which
allows the noise at an outdoor
event to exceed the regulated level
of 70 decibels tor a specific length
of time This permit, however, was
eliminated by the city council in
October 184.
The other permit is an Out-
door Amplified Sound Permit and
is required for all events, indoor
or outdoor, that produceelectroni-
cally amplified noise that can be
heardoutsidt. The permit restricts
the decibel range of the noise
generated at an event by time of
day, day (if week and the use ot
the property from which the sound
is coming.
The ParrvTs "Shamrockin'

lowed under the l hitdoor Ainpli

for the Saturday party, which will
feature two live bands and will
last from noon until 4 p.m. is 70
decibels roughly equivalent lo
the noise of loud traffic
McCarlev said that the

should not run into any problems
as long as they stay within the
boundaries (if the permit
Assistant Ceneral Manager for
DarrvTs Bryan Blum said that the
restaurant has taken many pre-
cautions in organizing the event.
Blum said that he has talked and
left letters with a couple of
hundred residents living near the
restaurant in order to explain the
event. He added that he has spo-
ken with the bands and that "thev
are going to do their best to stay

Caroline Post, DarrvTs gen
eral manager, also emphasized the

Myth of recreational drug exposed
Bv Suzanne Kellerman
Student Health Center, 757-6794
On Monday, Mrs. Louise Bias spoke on cam-
pus concerning the wide use of drugs bv college
students. One drug that she spoke on, cocaine, is
widely used on college campuses and to some
considered a recreational drug. Current research
has refuted this myth.
Cocaine is an extract of the leaves of the
ervthroxvon coca plant It is an odorless, colorless
to white substance in a crystalline or powdery con-
sistency. Cocaine acts as a stimulant drug and has
main similar effects o- the brain and body as an
amphetamine, though it is not chemically related.
Manv people think cocaine use is safe since it does not create physical
dependence and withdrawal as does heroin. But these people are
When a person uses cocaine on a regular basis, a dependence for the
brain stimulation they encounter is created. Every individual has
specialized brain circuits that are activated by life's everyday pleasures.
Cocaine seems to overwhelm these circuits and confuse the individual
I as to what is biologically and physiologically important. The person
then becomes self-consumed in their drive for a cocaine "high This is
when psychological dependency to the drug sets in.
Dependence on cocaine can create a long list of medical problems,
steady physical deterioration, and general health failure. Other effects
can be loss of energy, insomnia, sore throats, nosebleeds, sinus prob-
lems, runny nose, lost sex drive or decreased sexual performance. From
the psychiatric perspective, depression, panic, delusions, loss of inter-

The East Carolinian, March 15,1990 3
Petition calls for higher GPAs for officials
By Samantha Thompson
Staff Writer
More than 400 ECU students
have signed a petition calling for a
raise in the minimum grade point
average from 2.0 to 2.5 for the
executive offices of Student Gov-
ernment Association president,
vice president and treasurer.
For the change to go into ef-
fect, 13 percent of the student body,
totaling 2,404 students, must sign
the petition before it can be placed
on the ballot in the next election.
Twenty percent of the student
body has to vote in that election,
and the bill must then pass by two-
thirds of the votes for it to be writ-
ten into the SGA Constitution.
A similar bill was brought up
tor a vote in the Feb. 20, 1990
meeting of the SGA. Author of the
bill, Scott Residence Hall Repre-
sentative Michael Hadley, argued
during the meeting that the GPA
should be raised to 2.2 in order to
set the academic standards higher
for student leaders. Other SGA
members argued that to be an ef-
fective student leader, character
and dedication are needed.
The legislature denied ap-
proval of the amendment by a voice
Hadley is now using another
route to get his bill passed. If he
does not collect the required
amount of signatures one week
before the election on March 28,
Hadlev said he will aim for the
election in the fall of 1990. "The
sooner the better Hadley said.
"I'm being realistic though
Under the new change, stu-
dents who run for SGA executive
offices would have to have a 2.5
GrA and maintain it throughout
their term in office. Hadley said he
was open to flexibility in deter-
mining the 2.5 minimum. "I'm
open to 2.45, I'm not set in stone
about the 2.5 Hadley said.
Hadley said he believes that
the GPA raise would give the stu-
dent leaders more credibility,
especially when dealing in situ-
ations with the Greenville City
Council. He also said that since the
SGA president is a member of the
ECU Board of Trustees, he should
be taken seriously, and therefore
heshould takehisgrades seriously.
"This is an educational insti-
tution,and if wcdon't have enough
respect to have some academic
excellence in our leaders, then why
should people like the Greenville
City Council want to deal with
them Hadley said.
Yet, SGA President Tripp
Roakes disagrees. "I don't think a

leader should be judged com-
pletely by his GPA Roakes said.
"1 can't see the change making a
big difference.
"Being in office is a full time
job. I have had to put in sometimes
10, 20, 30 hours a week. I've put
100 percent dedication to this job.
I've had to miss classes to do so.
I've sacrificed my grades. Going
into the position, someone might
have a 2.5 GPA but a lot has to be
Members of Phi Sigma Phi
honor fraternity and Gamma Beta
Phi are helping Hadley acquire
signatures, and many ECU groups
have already signed the petition.
"Almost all of the women's bas-
ketball team have signed it

Booths will be set up today in
front of the student store and the
Croatan for the petition.

result ol skipping class, improper

problems is the insufficient time

that lab assistants provide beyond

control of viral expression and the
enhancement of the immune re-
sponse by nutritional means" may
be "the two most important areas
to be studied with regard to AIDS
(Nutrition Update, 1(2): 1. 1986) In
Africa, where AIDS is rampant,
the symptoms of AIDS are indis-
tinguishable from thoseoi"malnu-
trition. A growing bodv of medi-
al research shows that diets high
in saturated tats and refined sug-
ars (i.e typical American diets)
can significantly depress the
immune system.
� latrogenic factors (literally
"doctor-induced") may compro-
mise the immune system. In a
Study of heart patients, Dr. Louis
Fernandez of Dalhousie Univer-
sity observed depressed immune
functions even after a single blood
transfusion, and these effects per
sisted tor at least 60 day following
surgery. Dr. Steven McCombie oi
the Pima County Health Dept in
Tucson. Arizona, found that nine
out of 10 men with PCP had re-
ceived a tonsilloctomy in early life.
Some research indicates that child-
hood tonsillectomies increase the
risk of Hodgkin's lymphoma in
later life lastly antibiotics and
other antimicrobial drugs tend to
upset several kev aspects of the
immune system.
These are among the essential
underpinnings of the so called
multifactorial theory of AIDS. It
would be scientifically irrespon-
sible to dismiss this association as
"coincidental Moreover, there
are simply too many consistencies
among the high-risk groups to
ascribe the problem to mere
chance. By this view, the concept
of "risk" must extend bevond
behaviors which promote trans-
mission of the virus to include all
behaviors which might influence
susceptibility. The fact that anal
intercourse and fVdrugabusemay
greatly diminish one's resistance
to AIDS becomes all the more
poignant when we consider that
male homosexuals and IV drug
users comprise about 90 percent
of all AIDS cases in America It
would seem that these groups are
doubly at risk
In the multifactorial scheme
of things, HIV is an integral part of
AIDS but it is not the sole or
sufficient cause. It is a cofactor
which greatly increases the risk of
AIDS but by itself does not deter-
mine the course of the syndrome.
Lick of harmful cofactors might
explain, tor instance, why some
person can be infected with the
AIDS virus vet symptom -free for
long periods of time U2 years is
the current record), while others
contract the syndrome and die in
four days or less. Case-control
studies by Dr. Robert Cathcart in
San Francisco and by Dr. Elinor
Levy at Boston University sug-
gest that certain immune-enhanc-
ing cofactors such as diet and re-
laxation mav improve the prog-
nosis of AIDS patients.
HIV can reside in the bone
marrow of A i DS patients, suggest-
ing that the virus may be virtually
impossible to purge from the body
(Sdmcft News. May 7, '88). In view
of the virus's uncanny evasiveness,
the extremely high mortality rate
of AIDS, and the absence, thus far,
of a definitive treatment for the
underlying immune defect, any
approach which offers even a
remote possibility of staving off
the syndrome merits serious at-
tention. More attention should be
directed toward boosting the
immune system's capacity to re-
spond to HIV and other AIDS-re-
lated microbes.
This view lends new meaning
to the Surgeon General's credo,
"It's not who you are, it's what you
do" We might add, "It's not only
what you do to yourself; it's also
The East
would like to
help in the
recycling effort
by encouraging
its readers to
what you do for yourself � take
care of your immune system
The multifactorial approach gives
hope to those millions of people
already infected by HIV. Espe-
cially in the early stages, when
the body's healing potential is
still strong, the most promising
approach may come not from
more powerful drugs, but simplv
from taking better care of our-

Nicaraguan aid bill meets
resistance in Washington
Lawmakers of both parties are
lining up behind President Hush's
request for a quick infusion ot $300
million for Nicaragua, but prob-
lems are arising that could slow
the package's progress through
Bush asked Congress n Tues-
day to provide the money by April
5 to help incoming President Vi-
olcta Chamorro rebuild the Cen-
tral American country's war
weakened economy 1 le added
another request: that law makers
approve a stalled $500 million in
aid for Panama, which the presi-
dent proposed after the United
States overthrew Gen Manuel
Antonio Noriega.
The $iS00 million in immedi-
ate aid for Nicaragua and Panama
would be diverted from the cur-
rent military budget, perhaps the
first real "peace dividend" from
the receding Cold War.
Speaking at a news confer-
ence. Bush announced the lifting
of the 5-vear-old trade embargo
against Nicaragua, which the
United States had used in its ef-
forts to diskxige the leftist Sand in-
ista government of President
Daniel Ortega. And he said he
would seek an additional $200
million tor Nicaragua next year.
"These nations need our help
to heal deep wounds inflicted by
years of strife and oppression,
years of loss and deprivation'
Bush said. "And we must act and
act soon
On Capitol Hill, words of
support for Bush's request soon
followed. House Speaker Thomas
S. Foley, D-Wash , said lawmak-
ers would need moredetailsabout
where the money would come
from and how it would be spent,

U.S. to propose changes in arms reduction accord
United States, yielding to the
concerns of Western Furopean
allies, will propose a plan this week
to reduce troops and non nuclear
weapons in Europe with a key
monitoring provision deleted, a
senior Bush administration offi-
cial says.
The abandoned provision
called tor stationing monitors at
European ports and weapons fac-
tories to guard against violations
oi the 23-nation treaty nearing
completion in Vienna But the
official, whoouttined the erifka-
tion package on condition ot ano-
nymity, said virtual! all the allies
objected strenUOush to Soviet
monitors at their plants and ports
The revised Western proposal
will be presented in Vienna as
negotiators for the North Atlantic
I'reatv Organization and the
Warsaw Pact hold their sixth
round ot talks on a treaty designed
lor signing this year. Whether the
goal is achieved could depend on
how the Soviets respond to the
Western proposal. "The ball is in
their court the L S. official said.
The emerging accord calls tor
sharp reductions in Soviet tanks
and artillery in Eastern and Cen-
tral Europeandaceilingof 195,000
Soviet troops in the region. There
would be much smaller cutbacks
in IS. tanks and troops.
The United States could keep
195,(X)0 soldiers and airmen in
West Germany, Belgium, the
Netherlands, Denmark and Lux-
embourg, and an additional 30,000
in other NATO countries. Presi-
dent Bush and Soviet President
Mikhail S. Gorbachev want the
treaty to be ready tor signing by
the 16 NA III allies and the seven
Warsaw Pact countries at a 35-
nation summit meeting before the
end of the vear.
But several issues remain
unresolved. Most important
among them is a procedure to
guard against cheating.
The task involves policing the
vast expanse of Europe from
the Ural Mountains in the Soviet
Union to the Atlantic Ocean to
make sure the limits on tanks and
armored personnel earners, anti-
aircraft artillery, airplanes, heli-
copters and troops are honored
the offici il said a "web" of
safeguards would be offered by
NATO negotiators in Vienna, in-
cluding on-siteinspection of U.S.
and Soviet troops and tank de-
ployments. Information on non-
nuclear armories would be ex-
changed bv the two alliances and
then its accuracy checked bv
monitors who would go to the
military installations.
The monitoringsvstom would

veillance under President Bush's
"Open Skies" proposal as well as
a second system of overflights to
check on suspicious develop-
And the two sides would have
the right to demand to cheek out
suspicious movements of troops
and equipment under a svstem ot
"challenge inspections
Agreement within NATO on
these measures, and on a plan for
destroying excess tanks which also
will be presented in Vienna this
week, would improve prospects
for concluding the treaty. But, the
official said, virtually all the N AI ()
allies objected to having "the KGB
standing there" as Soviet or other
Warsaw Pact inspectors were sta-
tioned at weapons plants or
checked 'u ntry or shipment of
amis from European ports

A report by the committee said
child care is "an essential aspect of
domestic lite and the economic
strticture of the country and that
by the vear 2000 about three of
every four U.S. children will have
mothers in the work force
The report called "Who Cares
for America's Children7" said
there is a serious need to assure
quality child care for all economic
levels to protect and nurture vir-
tually an entire generation of U.S.
"In 1988, more than 103 mil-
lion children under age 6 had
mothers in the labor force the
report said. Another 1H million
between the ages b and 13 had
working mothers
Within five years, the study
said, about two-thirds of all new
workers will be women and 80
percent of them are expected to
have children at some point dur-
ing their careers.
Forecasts "suggest that by
2000 approximately 80 percent of
school-age children and 70 per-
cent of preschool children will
have mothers who are working or
looking for work outside their
homes it said.
The report said that by 1995
the amount spent annually for
child care in the United States will
reach $48 billion. But to provide
"adequate care" for all children
under age 13, it said total costs for
parentsand the govern mentcould

average of 23 percent of the in-
come of poor families, the report
said. It noted, however, that one
study shows that for families earn-
ing under $5,000 a year, the child
care expense can represent up to
50 percent of the income. Higher
income families pay about 9 per-
cent of their income for child care
The quality of child care fa-
cilities varies from state to state,
community to community, and is
affected by the parents' income
level, the panel said. Enforcement
of day care quality ranges from
none in some states that lack li-
cense requirements or state inspec-
tions, to other states with manda-
tory standards that are strictly
enforced, it said. Child care center
employees are almost universally
poorlv paid and worker turnover
is very high, it said.
The expert panel said studies
show there is an important need
for parents to establish strong re-
lationships with their children in
the early months of life. As a re-
sult, it said, the federal govern-
ment "should mandate unpaid,

RALEIGH (AP) The up-
coming legislative session likely

studying the change.
"I'm beginning to get the sense
that this committee is not going to

said Sen. T.L. Odom, D-Charlotte,
who is vice chairman of a legisla-
tive committee studying the
change since September 1989.
The delay is a setback to ad vo
cates of the change, who say the
verdict as it now stands allows

the panel's chairman, Rep. Roy

The group also is studying
ways to toughen the laws govern-
ing how people are released from

BOSTON (AD � The case in
federal bankruptcy court was
strictly small potatoes, but it meant
a lot to mechanic Norman Darish
� he won it all himself.
After months of stolen hours
at the library, lunch breaks spent
cramming on legalese and late-
night rehearsals in front of a mir-
ror, Parish represented himself in
a case concerning several hundred
dollars in unpaid bills at his
family's garage.
And he won.
Even the attorneys were im-
pressed .
"Check this out one lawyer
told another after the case was
closed. "This kid represented
himself and he did all right. He
did real good
Darish made his 10-minute
argument with all the panache of
Terry Mason. His suit, however,
was no! pinstripes but workbcnits
and a navy blue uniform with
"Leo's Auto Repair embroidered
over the breast pocket.
Parish hadn't even removed
the Phillips screwdriver, air pres-
sure gauge and magnetic pickup
tool from his hip pocket before
hopping on the subway to make
his lunchtime appearance.
"1 didn't want to be pompous
or a showboat he recalled, still
frying high a week after winning
his case early this month. "I jus
wanted to look like myself - an
average person
The defendant, a Boston so-
ciable, claimed protection from
creditors under a federal bank-
ruptcy filingHut Dansn found
out he had been under federal
bankruptcy protection almost
perpetually between 1982 and
"And meanwhile the little
guvs he owed money to were
stuck said Parish, who appealed
to the federal bankruptcy judge.
The judge agreed to dismiss the
Chapter 13 filing.

When most people try to think of a meaning tor
the word "in-limbo many will say it is a place
between heaven and hell or maybe even Earth or
better vet, a progressively stylish Greenville-based
band made up of Pave Mason on vocals, Pave
Schehr and Eric Davis on guitars, Dave Wright on
bass and Max Acker on drums.
Formed in August ot 1489, in-limbo isn't a typi-
cal band that is floating around while looking for a
town to invade. So there we sat, in thcdimly-lit New
PHi oneafternoon: me, my tape recorder and vocal-
istspokesman Mason. Over a cup ot tea, we talked
about the birth of in-limbo and the many positive
career opportunities headed their way.
The band got its first experience while playing
every Wednesday at the Peli's open-nuke night.
With 10 covers learned and tour to five originals
written within one week, this band was well on its
way to becoming a serious act.
Mason, who works at East Coast Music and
Video and is an English literature student here at
ECU, stressed that in-limbo does not want to be a
cover band. One of their many goals is to write more
originals so that thev won't be deemed another
college cover band.
Musically, Mason said that each band member
has his own influences, and that it is hard to catego-
rize the style of music that they play. With influences
ranging trom XTC to lane's Addiction to Robin
Hitchcock, ln-hmboisa band that incorporates these
different styles into their music to make tor a com-
pletely unique sound.
In April, in-limbo will release a nine-song tape.
Mason said that the tape will be sent to ma for record
companies and small independent labels Some of
the songs that will appear on the new tape include:

March 23.
"These German exhibits pro
vide an opportunity to examine
artwork from an area of the world
that has recently received a politi-
cal and humanitarian spotlight
with the destruction of the Berlin
Wall said Karen Churchill, gal-
lery director.
Through the use of photo-
graphs, maps, models, and video
tapes, "Berlin Modern Architec-
ture" focuses on the rebuilding of
Berlin after World War II
"Grand projects were com-
petitively placed as close to the
boundary of the Soviet sector as
possible to display the superiority
of the Western Allies Churchill
said. "During this period, there
was a lack of interest in preserving
the existing architecture and his-
tory- The desire was to forget the
past and create a modern city.
Widespread demolition mania led
to the destruction of more build-
ings than all of the air raids com-

I hate getting sick.
Who doesn't? But for me, the
hypochondriac of the world, even
minor colds blow all out of pro-
portion. So when I caught the
current bug, 1 headed straight for
bed, hoping it would blow over
It's been two weeks. My
mucous membranes are still work-
ing overtime to produce a truly
f righteni ng amount of snot hourly.
The ridges of my nose look like
raw hamburger because I've used
so many tissues, paper towels, old
newspapers and clothes to blow
my nose.
1 can't determine which part
of a cold is the absolute worst. Is it
the inability to breathe? Lying
awake at 4 a.m. gasping breaths
through my mouth, it seemed like
that was the worst part.
I know if s worse to breathe
through my mouth, I told myself
sternly. There's nothing to filter
out those dam minute dust par-
ticles, it doesn't adjust the tem-
perature of the air to your lung
temperature, and it makes your
breath stinky.
But, I retaliated sarcastically,
my nose isn't working, and if I
don'tget some oxygen in mybody
somehow, I'll drop dead. I con-
ceded that was true and pulled the
covers over my head in a futile
attempt to screen out those dam
minute dust particles.
The next day, the aches
started. My head hurt. My skin
was sensitive. Everything I
touched felt like sandpaper. Even
my leg hairs throbbed with pain.
That of course, was the day an
old roommate told me about his
trip to the dentist and his recent
bout with periodentitis. Well, just
hearing about that made my teeth
hurt, and 1 was convinced I had
contracted it too.
Slack, a friend, told me I was
being ridiculous. Thus assured, I
went to bed and woke up the next
morning with The Sore Throat.
Every swallow was an exercise in
muscle-constricting agony.
I tried sprays, cough drops,
Sucrets� For Individuals Who Are
InSerious Pain, and tenother kinds
of lozenges. Nothing dulled the
pain for very long and all that
sugary candy made my teeth start
aching again.
Miserable, panicky and read)
to slit my wrists and get it over
with, I went to the infirmary. It's
not like they're not real doctors, I
reasoned to myself, but they
should at least be able to handle
this cold.
Wrong After taking my blood
pressure, my temperature and
looking at my ears and throat with
that little flashlight thing, their
brilliant diagnoses was, "You have
the cold that lasts for a month. Go
home, take over-the-counter drugs
and get some rest
I told them that, no, this just
wouldn't doat all, I explained that
it was hard to get any senous rest
when you couldn't breatheor your
throat hurt and blankets felt like
sandpaper and weren't there any
stronger medicines they could give
me, something on the order of
morphine mixed with pot?

The Lady Pirate Softball team
defeated the Lady Camels of
( ampbell University yesterday 9-
and 3-0, increasing their record
I to 11-3, and giving them a four
game winning streak.
ECU opened up the season
with a double-header against C.U.
winning that outing 9-0 and 3-2.
The Lady Pirates scored three
runs in the second, third and fourth
innings to put them up for good.
We hit the bail hard at them
and made them make the mis-
takes said head coach Sue
Manahan. "We had a difficult
time with their pitching, but we
got our timing as the game pro-
Although the lady Camels
scored first the l.adv Pirates
quickly evened up the score with
a verv productive second inning
Senior Kim C'orwin (211) opened
up the inning with a base hit and
then was advanced off a sacrifice
bunt bv senior Kathy Schrage
(.385). '
Laura Crowder stepped up
and got a base hit down the middle
to bring in Corwin and tie the
game at one. Cindy Ritter (.300
and two-for-twoin the game) then
placed a bunt, barely beating the
throw to first and advancing
Crowder to third
Chris Byrne's I J811 line drive
down tirst was ust hard enough
to bring in both Crowder and Rit-
ter to give the Lady Pirates a 3-1
In the third inning ECU came
out unscathed, giving up no runs
under the pitching of Senior Tra-
cye l.arkin. Larkin pitched five
inningsallowing three runson two
"We consistently drove the
ball throughout the game said
larkin. "It really felt good toplav

Stephanie Hobson then
landed on first off a single and
Corwin sacrificed a bunt driving
in Weller. Hobson then scored off
a pop-up bv Schrage making the
score 6-1
The fourth inning saw ECU
scoring furiously and allowing
one run by the lady Camels to be
scored. Ritter was once again
asked to bunt and again she out-
ran the throw to first. On the next
pitch she stole her first of three
bases and was then hit home on a
hard drive by Mechelle (ones.

Techincals end Intramural reign
By Jeannette Roth
Only one name could be syn-
onymous with men's intramural
basketball for at least the past four
years at ECU. But, not anymore.
In an upset befitting the
"Cinderellas" of the NCAA, "I'd
Rather Be Ballin bounced over
"The Fellows" to make their claim
on the gold divisional basketball
championship. The championship
roundballers from Scott residence
hall go on to face Omega Psi Phi,
fraternity gold champions for the
all-campus title.
Led by Brian Lee, "I'd Rather
Be Ballin used a lightening of-
fense scoring on several outstand-
ing fast break attempts. At the half
"I'd Rather Be Ballin" was up by
seven, but soon into the second
half, found themselves in a tie with
the unrelenting perennial favor-
ites. The depth ot the "I'd Rather
Be Ballin" bench outlasted the six
members oi "The Fellows" who
were forced to compete against
the tireless fast break oi their
In the last minutes of the con-
test, "I'd Rather Be Ballin" pulled
a way leaving only one alternative
for "The Fellows" � to change
their nanv- to "The Foulows
With 41 seconds left in regula-
tion plav, the third and most dev-
astating technical foul fell on last
year's champions, knocking them
out of the all-campus highlight
and perhapsending an era in intra-
mural basketball.
� "The Alley Cats" have been
hanging around the Mendenhall
Bowling Center and have walked
away with the 1990 co-rec bowl-
ing trophy. In the finals of the
latest pintoppling action, "Silent
Attack 1" with bowlers Cindy
Faust, Bryan Kennedy, Cheryl
French, Traci Brown and Scott
Smith rolled a 599 first game
combination. Faust was the high
bowler with a 182 game followed
bv teammate Bryan Kennedy.
Though ahead early in the
second gameand perhapson their
way to a comeback victory, "Si-
lent Attack" faltered in the ninth
Ira me with open marks from each
member. "The Alley Cats" were
able to counterattack with several
strikes in the tenth frame to clinch
the second game and an overall
campus victory.

New evidence reveals stunning secret
ECU'S 'new
logo' may have
faked own death
The Amalgamated Press
As anyone who follows the news
knows, ECU'S new logo died a myste-
rious and untimely death several
months ago (see ECU Today, Novem-
ber 2,1989). Or did it?
Recently, a number of reports
from around the country have
prompted speculation that the ECU
logo may have faked its own death.
Current and former ECU students
alike have reported sighting the dis-
tinctive double-arched form in sev-
eral places�a supermarket in south-
ern Wyoming, working as a garage
mechanic in Michigan, and even
waitressing in a topless bar!
Chinese transfer student Mai-Fut,
one of the logo's few confidantes in
the weeks before its death, describes
his encounter with the logo this way:
"You'regoing to report this in the
paper, right? I mean, everyone's going
to know I was great pals with the logo,
right? Okay, then, here's the story.
"I woke up the other night and it
was just sitting there on the foot of my
bed, looking kinda sad. it looked up
and me and said, 'Mai-Fut, old pal,
bring me a peanut-butter-andnana
"I was tired. I wasn't thinking. I
made him a sandwich, but i put it on
rye bread, not wheat bread like he
likes. When I gave him the sandwich,
he just gave me this exasperated look
and shook his head. I blinked and he
was gone. But I really saw him, I swear
"That logo's music brought a
message of love and peace to a gen-
eration sobbed art major Art Ma-
jors, president of ECU's two-member
New Logo Fan Club. "When it died,
an age died with it
Majors' room is drenched in logo
memorabilia, including an original
movie poster from the logo's movie
lue Honolulu" and a studio master
tape of the logo singing "Blue Suede
Shins" and "Dormhouse Rock His
study of the logo's traumatic life is
complete � and, he's convinced, the
logo's death is a hoax.
"It was always saying it wanted
to get back to its roots, to hang around
with the little people again, get in
touch with itself Majors declared.
"I, for one, am convinced it faked its
death. And I really don't care if it
might be happier if I let it remain
anonymous in its new life, because
I'm a greedy, selfish pig who can't
imagine that the logo doesn't owe me
Investigative research by Majors
and several logo-sighters has un-
earthed evidence which, though in-
conclusive, strongly indicates that the
logo's death was indeed phony.
"It was indeed phony. No ques-
tion in my mind logo death re-
searcher Holly Farms stated flatly.
Citing discrepancies between the
dental records and cranial size of the
"real" logo and the one that was in-
terred near Rawl Building, Farms
insists that "there can be no question
that there was a massive cover-up by
the authorities on this one
"No cover-up was the terse re-
sponse of Pitt County Coroner Dr.
Dale Lee Bread, who signed the logo's
death certificate. "And no further
Still, many doubt Bread, among
them Zeno Nosy, a writer for The
National Inquisition. Nosy's article in
last week's Inquisition broke the news
of the possible fakery. Since then, the
story has also made the covers of Time
and Newsweek, and several tell-all
books by former lovers (among them
Apple Computers' apple logo) are
racing to the bookstands.
"There's all kinds of evidence to
suggest the logo's alive and well
Nosy maintains. "Why, just the other
day, a talking toaster in Jamaica told
me so.
"And even if my toaster source is
wrong he continued, "so what? If
we play this thing right, stories about
the logo's ghost � which we're call-
ing 'loghost' � will be bigger than
Bigfoot. Uh � this is off the record,
isn't it?"
Nosy has recently opened up a
highly successful business on the side,
painting portraits of the beloved ECU
logo on velvet. "If s the perfect thing
to cover that nasty hole in your trailer's
wall he says proudly. "And so taste-
ful. The logo would have wanted it
this way"

Rock godsNew KidsOnThe Block
unveiled the first items in a new line
ofcommtr ialmerchandise,anatomi-
cally correct dolls, at a press confer-
ence TWday. The dolls, checked
against tht real Kids with exacting
scrutiny, will sell for S19.98 each, and
each one comes with a small can of
real ozone-depleting hairspray.
Each K .d doll's hair can be styled
in a numK r of ways, to keep up with
the band members' constantly shift-
ing hairstyles. Each year of their col-
lective puberty, a new set of Kid dolls
(called, appropriately enough, 'The
New New Kids on the Block Collec-
tion") will be released. In each set, the
Kids' respective amounts of newly
grown body hair will be updated.
The Kids themselves are excited
about the money thesedolls will bring
them. "We were running low on cash,
since all the thirteen-year-old girls in
America had already bought copies
of our life-size door posters, so we
had to come up with some new mer-
chandise the cute one said.
Plans for the future include such
products as New Kids on the Block
"Ouchless" band-aids, New Kids on
the Block "No Tears" shampoo and
New Kids rectal thermometers.

Talking Janet Jackson dolls will

end?" and "No, my brother's the one
who's never been laid
ECU Today has learned that the
Janet dolls are actually retooled ver-
sions of the Michael Jackson dolls
released in the early eighties. "It was

Earnest Crat ty, dollmaker to the stars.

During the marketing sessions,
some controversy erupted over
whether or not to include a doll of
